ITTC Project

NeTS: Small: Exploiting Adaptive Protocols in Packet-Based Broadband Wireless Networks

Project Award Date: 08-01-2012


The desire to hide the transmission of information has existed since
antiquity. This has included the need to conceal the very existence of transmissions, because exposing the presence of transmissions may expose the location of the sender or an increase in the frequency of
transmissions may indicate the occurrence of an event. To achieve high data rates current infrastructure networks typically use Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) along with protocols that adapt to the environment, e.g., adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), Hybrid ARQ (HARQ), and
opportunistic scheduling. It is expected that future systems will continue to use these methods in addition to advanced interference management procedures to accommodate heterogeneous networks (HetNets).

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
