Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Mobile IP for Broadband Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks

Acronym: MobileMAN
Main Objective: This applied research project intends to design or plan fixed/portable and mobile Wimax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) WMANs (Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks), pioneering implemented in Portugal. Besides the benefits of its operation in the context of university, hospital and urban environments it will be very useful for demonstration and research purposes.
The project involves five main tasks:
1-Design and Development of IEEE 802.16 Microwave Links for Fixed/Portable Communications.
2- Planning of a Cellular IEEE802.16e for Mobility Support.
3- Network Architectures for Interoperability and Mobile IP between Wifi and WiMax networks.
4- Security for IEEE 802.16.
5-Multimedia Service and Applications for Mobile Platforms.
Our methodologies will be based on detailed planning, as well as network implementation, demonstration and validation. Measurements will be performed to evaluate QoS, and help both the dimensioning and the optimisation processes.
THE FINAL WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD ON THE 27th SEPTEMBER IN IT/ISCTE, LISBON, PORTUGAL
