The TERAWAY project will be carried out at the Department of Communications and Networking (COMNET). COMNET was established in 2008 and is a multidisciplinary unit of research and higher education covering communications and networking technology, networking business and human aspects of communications technology. Apart from being a long-established research unit in AALTO, COMNET also gives the highest-level teaching in networking technology, traffic theory, networking business, communications and information theory and radio communications systems. COMNET has largely contributed to the 31st ranking of AALTO in the field of the department, namely Telecommunications Engineering, and that is according to the Shanghai subject rankings of 2017. It is the highest ranked engineering discipline in Finland.
Role in the project
In TERAWAY Aalto university will participate in WP2 providing their contribution to scenarios and requirements definition and will contribute to the development of the propagation modelling and system simulations. Aalto is a key partner for the development of the network configuration and operation algorithms as part of the radio resource management and the network control platform based on Software Defined Network with the RAN slicing. Aalto will also work on the development of software-defined ratio (SDR) base station configuration and integration to drone platform. Within WP7, Aalto will participate and will lead the preparation of testbed and the execution of demo activities
