The aim of the Communications Technologies Division (CTD) research is to address the most endeavoring challenges that future communications technologies will face: those of energy and bandwidth efficiency. CTD research has a strong experimental emphasis, achieved through the use of demonstrators and testbeds, and the focus is on component (subsystem) level and also on PHY and MAC layers.
The research activities in the Communications Technologies Division (CTD) are structured in three Departments:
- Machine to Machine Communications (M2M)
- Physical-layer Implementation of High Performance Communication Systems (PHYCOM)
- Smart Energy Efficient Communication Technologies (SMARTECH)
