4. Projects

News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.

Filipe Cardoso has started the work on writing a Joint Paper on Energy Efficient Multi-Antenna Techniques. António Serrador prepared a set of simulation scenarios and variations by exploring all available RATs (WCDMA, HSPA and LTE) and all EARTH services and traffic loads, including the new M2M service.

Net!Works –
An update of the White Paper on Smart Cities Applications and Requirements has been circulated as a contribution to the SARA (Strategic Applications and Research Agenda).

monIT –
The 10 finalists from Prémio monIT 2011 will present their work at the final, which will be held at IST on July 9th. Measurements have been made in some locations in Madeira and Porto Santo Islands, and a new continuous measurements network composed by 5 stations has been installed in Vila Real. As usual, all results can be checked at the Project’s website.

Daniel Sebastião and João Gonçalves are finalising their work on Deliverable D.A.7 “New business models and business dynamics of the future networks”. Luisa Caeiro and Lúcio Ferreira have been working on the detailed review of Deliverable D.C.1 “Architectural Concepts of Connectivity Services”. They have contributed to a poster at FuNeMS’2011. Lúcio Ferreira has been also reviewing D.A.7 from WP-C viewpoint.
