A Software Defined Radio Lab

SDR-Lab project: Software Defined Radio testbeds


With the exponential growth in wireless data traffic, modifying radio devices easily and cost-effectively has become business-critical. Software-Defined Radio (SDR) technology has been recently introduced as an innovative tool to move software as close as possible to the antenna and bring more flexibility to radio service providers, equipment manufacturers and end users. What's more, SDR's flexibility allows it to adapt to different radio protocols, and meet the growing need for performance and interoperability between systems.   
In our SDR Lab, we conduct research on wireless resource allocation with SDR platforms. Our research is focused on three main topics:
  • Network Slicing and and resource allocation in Cloud-RAN
  • Resource allocation in Small Cells networks,
  • Resource allocation in Device-to-Device (D2D) networks.
The SDR Lab is a project gathering collaborators from LIP6 and LIGM laboratoires from UPMC Sorbonne Universities, UPEM and ESIEE. It is supported by the ANR ABCD and FUI ELASTIC Networks projects. We mainly work with Ettus Research Universal Software Radio Platform (USRP) series.
