4. Projects

News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.

Filipe Cardoso and Mónica Branco finished a document on MIMO Energy Efficiency to be presented in the next meeting in Stockholm. António Serrador has worked on the multi-RAT simulator by implementing fundamental features for the LTE RF interface; a machine-to-machine traffic model was also defined and circulated in the project. Standardisation inputs related with Energy Efficiency metrics are also being discussed.

Net!Works –
Work on a Smart Cities white paper is being finalised.

monIT –
The information actions continued with four more actions, and a couple more scheduled for the upcoming months. Regarding Prémio monIT, the final deadline is approaching (May 13th), students being requested to deliver the complete projects. The activities section of the monIT website is now fully available (, with a Google Maps based platform allowing the user to track the different activities held by monIT, like measurements and public actions.

Within the Open Connectivity WP, Luísa Caeiro and Lúcio Ferreira contributed to Deliverable D.C.1 “Architectural Concepts of Connectivity Services” with sections on radio resource management for virtual connectivity and for wireless mesh connectivity. Also, a section mapping the proposed architecture onto a use case dealing with creating and sustaining the connectivity in wireless challenged networks was edited. Daniel Sebastião and João Gonçalves are working on Deliverable D.A.7 “New business models and business dynamics of the future networks”.
