TST participates in an European M2M R&D project
The European project EXALTED (EXPanding LTE for Devices) has been aproved by the European Union within the VII Framework Program. This project aims at integrating M2M (machine-to-machine) communication in an LTE (long-term evolution) network, the last generation 4G cellular phone standard.
The consortium is composed by leading companies in the M2M and LTE sectors such as Sagemcom, Vodafone, Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent among others. TST is responsible for applying wireless sensor networks as an example of M2M and for the development of a gateway between the M2M world and the LTE network, actively participating in the final demonstrator.
The kick-off meeting will take place in Barcelona (Spain) on September 14th and 15th. The project will last for 30 months with a total budget of 10.000.000 €.
