Mobile multimedia communication systems and networks

Project Details


One of the key technological challenges to advance our knowledge-based society is the development of mobile multimedia communication systems and networks. Some general trends we observe today are : the increasing importance of multimedia services, the unprecedented growth of mobile telephony, the increasing importance of the internet protocol as the integrating network technology, the importance of wireless access to the network, the increasing diversity of terminals. It is interesting to observe that the push towards wireless networks, the diversity in terminals and services, and the requirement for QoS and mobility, results in a situation where services should be matched to physical layer aspects (and of course with the networks and systems in between). The IAP/PAI consortium has bundled the expertise at the different levels required for the development of future mobile multimedia communication systems and networks.
