CTTC participates in Science Week 2016



From November 10th through November 20nd, the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation coordinates Science Week, and initiative that seeks to introduce the science carried out at CTTC and other research institutions to society.

This year, CTTC has organized a talk to present the center and some demos and experiments.


Day: 10/11/2016 from 10:00h to 13:00h

10:00h Welcome & presentation (In Spanish)

Place: Auditorium




Machine to Machine Department


Lab. Mobile Networks department

The Mobile Networks department of the Communication networks division of the CTTC works on the optimization of mobile networks and edge transport networks, including IT resources. This includes 5G-related topics such as SDN, NFV, MEC, novel RAN splits, energy management, or machine learning for RAN and transport optimization. The department follows an experimental approach and evaluates most techniques over the EXTREME Testbed, which features a network and IT substrate in-lab and also distributed throughout the building. During the visit, we will explain what we do in terms of research, the goal and main building blocks of the testbed, and the projects carried out over the testbed (e.g., 5G-Crosshaul, flex5Gware, 5GNORM).

Statistical Inference Department 

Indoor Positioning

Lab. Optical Networks and Systems 

Visit to the laboratory of the Optical Networks and Systems Department: description of the lab facilities and the architecture of the ADRENALINE testbed® optical network. This demonstrator enables de flexible deployment of two main demonstration platforms: on the one hand, in the room 0.03 the SDN/NFV Cloud Computing Platform and Core Network for 5G Services encompasses multiple interrelated although independent components and prototypes, to offer end-to-end services, interconnecting users and applications across a wide range of heterogeneous networks technologies for the development and test of 5G services; on the other hand, an Experimental Platform for Optical OFDM Systems (EOS) is implemented, in theroom 0.02, specifically for the design and experimental validation of flexible O-OFDM transmission schemes.
