Workpackage : WP11
Communication technology - mobile telecommunication networks - collaboration.
Start date or start event : 1 month
Objectives :
  1. Collaboration with the leading European telecommunication vendors and operators.
  2. Presentation of actual state of 3G systems - technology and research.
  3. Development of research and education program in teleinformation - partnership project.
  4. Application of the theoretical and computer methods used in physics to the problems in telecommunication and information technology.
Description :
The proliferation of new information and telecommunication technology influences the life of modern society. The need for the electronic form of information is growing rapidly, also the fast transfer of information throughout the world is required. All private networks and especially public Internet network enables us to access a variety of information resources. Hardly any commercial and scientific institution can work without network communication and access to information. In the past, telecommunication and computer science were treated independently, the convergence of these two branches have now become a fact. The main stream of research and progress in this technology is done by vendors of equipment and operators. In the first stage of the project permanent contact with leading European operators and vendors of equipment will be established. Wide spectrum of activities will be covered, mainly problems related to 3G systems: UMTS, GPRS, WCDMA, IP, DWDM, ATM, voice over IP, voice over packets, multimedia services, network optimisation and planning, traffic analysis, agent systems, open services access. The progress in 3G systems enables "mobile" access to networks, in particular Internet. Researchers from the DACM have experience in the mathematical methods used in theoretical physics and computer simulation. It is well known that many methods used in physics are applicable to some problems appearing in telecommunication, the research program for the application of these methods will be developed. The program is devoted to the integration of research and education. Specialists from research centres of vendors and operators, who can give lectures on 3Gsystems will be invited. Common research projects with local industry and software companies are also planned.
