The COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS Revolution
Communication Systems are facing unprecedented changes. The emergence of multimedia in the mobile world means a convergence of internet, broadcast and telecommunication networks.
In order to provide services to a large population of users, the redesign of communications strategies, radio spectrum sharing policies, Qos control modes and eventually the overall architecture of mobile networks must be carried out.
The primary goals of the Communication Systems department at EURECOM are twofold:
1) Making research advances at the fundamental level in domains ranging from radio to network architecture and communication theory, and
2) Provide the necessary technical background to engineers in the area.
As such the competencies of our department must cover the whole field, encompassing the physical aspects of propagating waves, the design of receivers, including the analog, digital, coding and signal processing aspects, the various networking protocol layers, all the way to the mobile services and their applications.
