Enhancing Access to the Radio Spectrum
The radio frequency (RF) spectrum is crowded, and Wireless Institute members are developing technologies as well as economic and regulatory guidelines for innovative spectrum sharing that allow more more efficient use of this scarce national resource.
Wireless Institute faculty, staff, and students share approximately 4000 square feet of laboratory space and over $4M in advanced circuit prototyping, software development, and test and measurement infrastructure.
Wireless Institute members have created a number of technologies that allow wireless devices to practically exploit multiple antennas for increased capacity, coverage, and reliability.
Creative and Collaborative Students
The Wireless Institute trains outstanding graduate students and well-round undergraduate students who leave Notre Dame fueled with a desire to be a force for good in the world.
Mobile Devices and Applications
Wireless Institute faculty and Notre Dame students are developing enhanced mobile devices and innovative applications that are quickly transitioning into the commercial sector.
Emerging Network Architectures
Wireless Institute members are exploring all aspects of decentralized network architectures such as mesh and ad hoc networks, which require less critical infrastructure and are more robust to node failures, but present many challenges in network modeling, design, and optimization for scalability, security, and management.
Interoperable Broadband for Public Safety
Wireless Institute members are contributing to technology and policy geared at providing interoperable voice and broadband data networks to the public safety community.
Wireless Institute members have developed a leading program in the area of software-defined radio, which enable multi-band, reprogrammable, and cognitive communications and networking.
