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 [...]

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 [...]
