FAST Project: "ADVANCED CONCEPTS FOR FUTURE BROADBAND WIRELESS NETWORKS"

         Supelec                             

 

Project Description:

This FAST project is a joint research program funded by the Australian Research Council and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The participants belong to the following institutions: Institut Eurécom, Supelec, the Institute Nationale de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA), Ecole Nationale Superieure de Telecommunications (ENST Paris)  and The Institute for Telecommunications Research (ITR), of the University of South Australia (UNSA). The proposed research focuses on the problem of advanced tools for futur wireless networks (OFDM, CDMA, MIMO, and ad-hoc networks). The complete project plan can be found here.

Project Duration:

01.01.2006 until 31.12.2007.
