The CTVR Communications Showcase

  • Location: Light House Cinema in Smithfield, Dublin.
  • Date: 12th Sept 2013
  • Time: 8:30am

ALL WELCOME

It will be a short, half-day event (8:30 to 13:00) focused on the very vibrant telecoms and communications sector in Ireland and exhibiting a range of the CTVR outputs.

We will have over 50 CTVR exhibits at the event. For those of you who are interested in the bigger picture it will be an opportunity to get an overview both of the key trends & challenges in the communications sector as well as the solutions being delivered in Ireland; solutions for Ireland and solutions with international scope.

For those of you more interested in the technical details, we will have exhibits that range from the physical layer to the network layer to applications and services. You will have the chance to see the latest advances in antenna design, thermal solutions for telecoms, new components and systems  from the photonics and the RF worlds and cognitive radio technologies. On the network side we will be showcasing optical network solutions for Ireland as well as future wireless networking concepts and spectrum access mechanisms. On the services and applications front we will showcase some of our work on smart environments and on white space applications.

A detailed agenda will appear nearer the date.

New Testbed under construction

Testbed 2009-2013

The hard, dirty work of renovating space to house the CTVR testbed is finally underway. Since moving in to the listed Dunlop Oriel House, the wireless testbed along with the students and researchers that use it have been operating in a cramped, dark, hot corner of the building. The builders are here and the Soviet-era panelling that had divided the room into 4.5 offices, a corridor and a lab is being removed this week.

CTVR is motivated by the ethos ‘theorise, simulate and build’. The upgraded testbed will provide a state-of-the-art experimental setting in which to test theories and concepts and move CTVR’s results beyond simulation and evaluation. The facility will be available to CTVR partners and affiliates – both academic and industrial.
