Building Trust in Machine Learning based Network Management

Machine Learning (ML) has a great potential to improve radio networks, however, it does not provide insights to humans on its strategies. This is one of the barriers to the wide adoption of ML. ML interpretability can help to overcome this barrier, by making black-box models explainable.

KASYMOSA

The project "Ka-Band Systems for Mobile Satellite Communication" (KASYMOSA) researches novel technologies to apply Ka band satellites in disaster scenarios. The partners Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, TU Ilmenau, DLR Institute of Communications and Navigation and IABG set out to further enhance the technology developed in the MoSaKa project and provide a complete mobile ground terminal. The ICS group will research the necessary resource management algorithms and integrate them into the system parts provided by its partners. The focus of the work is on the management of complex resource structures over variable transmission channels.

Cognitive Radio Experimentation World (CREW) Project- Open Call Partner

The project aims at reducing the sensing latency of a software implementation of a Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) based MAC protocol by integrating a dedicated spectrum sensing engine. The experiment benefits from two cognitive components from the CREW project: the Iris reconfigurable SDR developed at Trinity College Dublin and the IMEC sensing engine.

SANE

Accompanying the lectures "technical computer science", "computer organization", "integrated hard and software systems" as well as "logic design" interactive work sheets were made available as web pages. These pages serve as collection of formulas on one side and interactive designing tools (so called "Living Pictures") supporting the single design steps of digital systems on the other side. With these interactive pages the students can test prepared and newly designed digital circuits. These tests will help students to understand the textbook "Schaltsysteme" (Pearson- Verlag 2003) better as well as improve the knowledge in the above mentioned lectures.

goJTAG

The networking founded by Tallinn University of Technology and TU Ilmenau as well as the Company Testonica Lab pursues the goal to provide the industry JTAG/Boundary Scan tools and knowledge based on an independent and non-commercial platform, sustainably accelerating the wide adoption of standardized IEEE 1149.x test methods. The centre piece of GOEPEL electronic’s engagement as Sponsor Member is the provision of hardware and respective reference designs. goJTAG is the first university-driven open-source project aiming at providing a full package for a JTAG newcomer including training materials, slides and exercises. The software includes a simulation component that fully illustrates the underlaying concept of JTAG/Boundary Scan. The user can directly step-wise control the test features of IEEE 1149.1 compliant devices and observe a system's reaction in a real time in an on-screen simulation. Using a PicoTAP controller (to be ordered from GOEPEL electronic) , all actions can be applied to a unit under test (UUT) it is connected to. Such a fine-grain illustration of JTAG test principles has not been possible until now.

PRUNO

Prospects for Realizing User-centric Network Orchestration To overcome the current limitations of the Internet, several different approaches are existing which can be mainly distinguished into network-aware applications and application-aware networks. Bringing together both approaches, network-application interfaces are to be deployed to realize smart mediation of application data through the Internet. In this context, content mediation includes resource management as well as traffic management.
