Improvements promoted by 5G and WiFi6 networks. Services offered in the cloud.

This project belongs to: Technological innovation and intelligent systems

In this project we will work on two key technologies for the digitization of society: Communications and cloud computing.

On the one hand, in the communications part, we will show the current situation about the 5G technology and its environment. Thanks to this technology, the density of connected devices will increase, coverage will improve, data transfer will be accelerated and latency will decrease. This will enable, for example, the development of the autonomous vehicle, always keeping safety in mind. In the area of medicine, it will facilitate the performance of remote surgical operations and, in the industrial world, there are great opportunities to improve and optimize production processes. Thus, one of the objectives of the project is to visualize the current situation and provide information on this emerging technology. To this end, it will be important to explain the advantages and risks, as well as the sectors where this technology can be applied.

On the other hand, in the area of digitization of companies, the decision is currently being made to take the infrastructure, platform, data… to the cloud. However, it is very important to define and be clear about which of the company’s services are going to be outsourced. Therefore, another important objective of our project is to clearly explain the services offered by the cloud, and the advantages and disadvantages of using these platforms. At the same time, the use of the cloud is also revolutionizing the way we building, developing and deploying services. This flexible and agile way of building applications helps new companies or startups to quickly position themselves in the market and, therefore, our goal is to learn and disseminate what interesting tools exist within the cloud native technologies.

Finally, all this knowledge will be transferred through webinars and courses in different formats, but always trying to seek the practical application of what has been learned. These training sessions will be aimed at teachers of vocational training in the fields of computer science, electronics, telecommunications and any other teacher who shows interest in the topics described.

In summary, the objectives of the project are presented below:

  • Disseminate knowledge about new communication protocols:
    • Telephony services: 4G and 5G (NB-IoT)
    • WiFi networks: WiFi5 and WiFi6
  • Cloud computing:
    • Explain the advantages and disadvantages of cloud services
    • Extend the knowledge about Cloud Native technologies
