Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Design and Optimisation of WDM Millimetre-Wave Fibre-Radio Systems

Acronym: ROFWDM
Main Objective:
The main results of this project will be disseminated through publications in scientific journals and
international conferences as well as technical reports. This will help promote future cooperation
and will allow other R&D institutions to share the results and the exchange of ideas.
At the national level the results of this project will be reported on two main events in this area,
namely the ''Telecommunications Conference'' and the ''Symposium on Enabling Optical
Networks'' an yearly event, which INESC and IT-Aveiro are the main organizers. During the
course of the project we propose to organize a workshop, with the collaboration of all partners,
dedicated to the presentation and dissemination of results.
In addition the partners within this project, based on mutual cooperation, will pursue the
exploitation of results, namely, technology transfer, standardization. In order to meet this target
the academic/research institutions will collaborate closely with the industrial partner Siemens, SA.
Siemens, will use its position as a leading manufacture of advanced fiber optic and radio
networks to explore possible scenarios of technology transfer, system specifications of WDM
fibre-radio system architectures and the convergence between the super broadband wired and wireless access networks.
