MNL study unveils 14 Mbps of additional wireless capacity per citizen unleashed via TV “White Space” exploitation
TV “White Spaces” (TVWS) are locally underutilized portions of the terrestrial TV bands and occur as a by-product of the Digital Switchover. Thanks to the very good characteristics of the TV bands in terrestrial radio communications, the exploitation of TVWS for license-exempt networking, under a carefully established regulatory framework, is a very attractive perspective.

Media Networks Laboratory in association with TEI of Crete co-organized the International Conference on Telecommunications and Multimedia (TEMU2012), held in Heraklion, Crete from 30.7.2012 to 1.8.2012. TEMU2012 was organized under the Technical Co-Sponsorship of IEEE Communications Society. The conference provided a three-day Scientific Program, including presentations of invited and regular papers from manufacturers, operators, services providers, academia and research institutes, as well as from policy-makers and stakeholders.
Medianet Lab released as an OpenSource project the SNMP active monitoring framework (SAM) source code. The development is currently undergo in the frame of ICT-ALICANTE FP7 Project. You can find out more here. The current implementation is based on One-Way Ping [link] and NET-SNMP [link] OpenSource projects.
The 5th Int. Conf. on Telecommunications and Multimedia (TEMU 2012), organised by TEI Crete and supported by NCSR “Demokritos”/MNL is to take place in Heraklion, Crete, July 30 – August 1, 2012. TEMU is technically co-sponsored by IEEE/Communications Society and conference proceedings will be included in IEEE Xplore.
TEMU2012 is an International conference to present new and original research results and the latest state-of-the-art in Telecommunications and Multimedia. It fosters communication and discussion among researchers, scientists and students working in the design, implementation and application of telecommunications and multimedia fields. The conference will provide a three-day Scientific Program, including presentations of More >
In the frame of ICT-ALICANTE, MNL is organising a panel session at Future Internet Assembly (May 10-11, Aalborg, Denmark).

Media Networks Laboratory is participating in the FP7/SEC GERYON Project, which has started on December 2011. GERYON will provide an unified answer to the problems that system integrators must face when interconnecting different emergency networks by bringing together and deploying in a specialised manner the common technical and operational logic regarding Identity Management, Security, Signalling, Transcoding and enhanced emergency services deployment. Instead of duplicating the same functionality in different gateways for each pair of technologies to be connected, GERYON will extract and unify the related management modules in a technology independent way and will provide mechanisms and interfaces for an More >
Media Networking for Cloud-based Media Surveillance Platform: MNL participating in FP7/SEC SAVASA project
Media Networks Laboratory is participating in the FP7/SEC SAVASA Project, with a total budget of Eur 4M, aiming at providing a common platform for Surveillance Systems based on a cloud infrastructure. in the frame of this project MNL will implement the distributed video surveillance network (using cloud computing technology). Additionally MNL will develop the network security components for secure archive access and retrieval in the distributed video archive architecture based on an IP environment. The project started on December 12, 2011.
Project overview: The SAVASA project aims to create a common platform that provides for the decoupling of CCTV and Video Archive More >
