Broadband Communication Systems achievements and ambitions in creating our future communication world Ton Koonen COBRA Institute Eindhoven University of Technology email@example.com With acknowledgements to the BCS partners for their contributions! NIRICT Strategiedag, Utrecht, 12 Feb. 2009
amjk 2 SRA BCS goal To provide the technologies for wide-ranging, congestion-free, energy-efficient, versatile and self-organising communication networks which can provide a wide variety of services, and possess the capabilities for autonomously matching network resources to user demands by elaborating the themes Wideband communication techniques (radio, photonics) Self-organised adaptive radio spectrum utilisation techniques Format-transparent ultra-fast signal transport and routing (photonics, radio over fibre) Energy efficiency ( ‘green ICT’ )
amjk 3 SRA BCS partners TUD: Electronics (Long) Large-area electronics (Beenakker) Circuits and Systems (V.d. Veen) Wireless & Mobile Comm. (Niemegeers) Electr. Comp. Techn. & Materials (Sarro) TUE: Electromagnetics/Wireless Comm. (Tijhuis, Fledderus) Electro-Optical Comm. Syst. (Koonen) - Network Communication Prot. (Liotta) Opto-electronic Devices (Smit) Mixed Signal Microelectr. (V. Roermund) Signal Processing Syst. (Bergmans) Phot. Semicond. & Nanophot. (Nötzel, Koenraad) Molecular Mat. & Nanosystems (Janssen) Technology Mgt. (Smits) Stoch. Operations Res. (Boxma) Discrete Math. (V. Tilborg) UT: Integr. Optical Micro Syst. (Pollnau) Integr. Circuit Design (Nauta) Signals and Systems (Slump) Design and Analysis of Comm. Syst. (Haverkort) Short Range Radio (vac.)
amjk 4 BCS workplan* close co-operation with industry, and between university groups (joint lab experiments, traineeships, re-education, …) joint initiatives for national (SmartMix, Freeband, IOP, …) and international (FP7, …) projects alignment of research and education activities “3TU Telecom overleg” * as stated in NIRICT Kick-off meeting, Utrecht, Mar. 22, 2007
amjk 5 Achievements – joint research Co-operation of BCS partners in Dutch programmes: Freeband Impulse projects(AIRLINK, MGDM, TUC, OTDM, …) Freeband Main projects (WiComm, Broadband Photonic Access, AAF) IOP GenCom projects (radio-over-fibre in-home networks, multimode fibre access networks, Future Home Networks, MIMO in a mass market, SiGiSpot, …) SmartMix MEMPHIS Successful! but NOT in European programmes FP6, FP7 (exception: PANAMA in Catrene)
amjk 6 Achievements – cooperation with industry Freeband AAF PON λ – Router FlexPON enabling a flexible on-demand capacity offering Freeband BBPA silicon 1.68mm x 1.78mm 2 60 GHz power amp/antenna Freeband WiComm
amjk 7 Achievements – 3TU alignment New CEDICT chairs *Network Communication Protocols - TUE, Antonio Liotta, per Oct. 2008 *Short Range Radio - UT, Scanlon/Bentum *Ad-hoc networking - TUD, M. El Zarki Meeting to align research in wireless technologies at TUD, UT, and TUE; at TUE, Dec. 1, 2008 Centre for Wireless Technologies Eindhoven established; scientific director Peter Baltus RF/sub-mm-wave lab established at TUD Master Broadband Telecommunication Technologies at TUE Master Telecommunication Networks at UT Master Telecommunications in TUD
amjk 8 Future plans SRA BCS Start co-operation in education; exchange lecturers? Acting jointly in international research programmes Continuing/extending co-operation in national programmes but notwithstanding excellent achievements in previous programmes (Freeband, IOP GenCom) + spinoff to national industry, physical layer research seems to get forgotten in new programmes (cf. FES), strategy organisations (ICT Regie), and strategy documents (cf. Masterplan ICT) I CT should become ICT again !!!
