TST concludes its participation in the Mobilia project

TST has successfully concluded its participation in the Mobilia project, Mobility Concepts Requirements for IMT-advanced, within the Celtic European Programme. The project has been developed during the last 30 months (2008 – 2010).

The Mobilia consortium has been formed by both public institutions like the University of Cantabria (UC), the Centre Tecnologic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) or the Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) and private companies like Tecnologías de Telecomunicaciones y de la Información (TTI), Sigint Solutions, CreativIT or Wavecom.

Mobilia project targets ITU IMT-advanced requirements for future wireless systems. In order to achieve this scope, it has been carried out an important research in several areas: Cooperative MIMO, Relaying Schemes, Power Amplifier Reconfigurability, Multiple RAT Management, etc.

TST’s work on the project has been focused on the design and implementation of an architecture, based on the Media Independent Handover Function defined in the standard IEEE 802.21, and the definition of several communication mechanisms that facilitate the exchange of primitives between different entities in heterogeneous systems.
