Technische Universität Berlin is, with ca. 30.000 students, the biggest German University of Technology. It is, however, also a research university, with telecommunications being one of the key areas of its competence. The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science creates – in cooperation with a group of affiliated research institutes and the on-campus industrial research (e.g. the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories; Fraunhofer Institutes, Leibniz Institutes) – a unique ecosystem in telecommunication, oriented on basic and applied research. The recently established Innovation Center of Human-Centric Communication bundles research effort of numerous faculties and leading researchers within this eco-system. The Telecommunication Networks Group ( participating in this project conducts since 1993 research in architectures and protocols of communication networks. With around 30 researchers and PhD students and ca. 1.5 m of external funding per annum, it belongs to the strongest research groups of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The methodology of research is based on a mixture of analytical/simulative investigations on one side and the experimental research on the other side. To this point the group has well equipped laboratories, including the TWIST testbed, environments for prototyping of WLAN systems (down to MAC modifications), has access to an emerging open mesh network testbed (to be operational starting in winter 2009) and is participant of the world largest Internet testbed – PlanetLab

Tasks in this project

TUB will contribute to all WPs focusing its activities on Tasks 2.3 and 6.4. TUB will lead WP5.


TKN is working since 2003 on cognitive radio based secondary usage of radio resources following different architectural paradigms (Corvus, 802.22 frequency hoping modus, secondary usage of CDMA based cellular systems). The research results are widely cited and appreciated, including the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Symposium on Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN) on the technical track.
