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 management with SDR platforms. Our research is focused on four 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.
  • Resource Provisioning on:
    • Radio Access Network (RAN) using Software-Defined (SD-RAN) controller
    • Resource Provisioning on Transport Network (TN) using Software-Defined (SD-TN) controller
    • Resource Provisioning on Core Network (CN) using Software-Defined Data-Center (SD-DC) controller
  • Machine Learning-Based Slice Attack Detection and Mitigation for 5G-IoT Networks
The SDR-Lab is a project gathering collaborators from LIGM, University Gustave Eiffel (France). It is supported by the following research projects: 5G-INSIGHT (ANR), ABCD (ANR), FlashRAN (DIM RFSI), ELASTIC Networks (FUI) and Scorpion (FUI).
