ERC Grant awarded to Computer Scientist Joerg Widmer for visionary research on wireless communication

02 December 2013 -- diego_grande

Computer Scientist and Research Professor, Dr. Joerg Widmer, from the Institute IMDEA Networks in Madrid  (Spain), has received a 1.7 million Euro ERC Consolidator Grant awarded by the European Research Council (ERC). ERC grants are the most valuable individual grants for researchers in Europe and a major indicator of excellence in scientific research. In November, Joerg Widmer was also awarded a Ramón y Cajal Grant. This highly competitive program from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness awards research funding on merit of scientific achievements. Both results confirm the exceptional quality and outreach of research on future network technologies at IMDEA Networks.

Antonio de la Oliva imparts IEEE 802 Tutorial on Wireless SDN in Access and Backhaul

19 November 2013 -- imdea-admin

Nowadays there is a trend in the networking community to provide programmability to network functionalities, the so-called Software Defined Networking (SDN). The clearest example of this trend is the OpenFlow protocol developed within the Open Network Foundation, which aims at providing novel mechanisms to control network hardware. Within the newly created IEEE 802 EC Study Group OMNIRAN, special attention has been placed on how to provide SDN functionality to IEEE 802 technologies, e.g., IEEE 802.11, best known as Wi-Fi.
