CTTC coordinates EU projects on Artificial Intelligence for 6G Networks

CTTC´s SMARTECH department is currently coordinating four projects on 5G/6G networks which have been funded by the EC under the umbrella of the Horizon 2020 5G-PPP partnership. Among those, MonB5G proposes a novel zero-touch management and orchestration framework, heavily leveraging distribution of operations together with state-of-the-art data-driven AI-based mechanisms for 6G networks. Complementarily, MARSAL breaks [...]

CTTC develops a Smart Antenna that protects GNSS Receivers from radio frequency interferences

Researchers from the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) have developed a smart antenna for systems that use GPS and/or Galileo receivers for positioning and/or synchronization of distributed networks. These systems are vulnerable to radio frequency intentional or unintentional interferences that can block signal reception and cause service disruption. The GNSS Smart Antenna developed [...]

New release of the 5G-LENA NR open source network simulator

The ns-3 team of the Mobile Network group has recently released a new version of the 5G-LENA NR open source network simulator. This group actively designs, develops and maintains the open-source ns-3 simulation models of leading 4G and 5G 3GPP technologies, LTE (Long Term Evolution) and NR (New Radio). ns-3 is a research-oriented, discrete-event network [...]

Building the nervous system of our society

5G networks add to 4G networks the capability to fulfil the needs of critical latency-constrained and highly reliable services (e.g., robot control,  remote surgery). At the same time, they allow building logical networks (often referred to as slices) on top of the same physical network, hence becoming a network of networks. Furthermore, the physical substrate [...]

CTTC participates in a project to develop a tool to control next generation satellite systems using artificial intelligence

ATRIA project funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 Programme, officially started on April 1st as part of the H2020-SPACE-2020 project working on the topics of satellite communications. The project aims to build a generic and intelligent tool (AI-PCS) to control current satellite flexible payloads and their configurable traditional counterparts. Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques [...]
