Wireless MKM networks

The aim of this activity is to develop innovative architectures for the realization of MultiKiloMetric (MKM) wireless links, ranging till 300 km. For this purpose, a software for the management of MAC and Physical Layers has been realized.

At the moment the most important scientific result is the realization of a 300 km link, from the Hut Capanna Margherita on the crest of Monte Rosa, to Monte Cimone (near Bologna). This link was claimed in the middle of 2007 as a World Distance Record.

This activity is carried out in close cooperation with Andrew, Ministero delle Comunicazioni and Laboratorio ICT (Regione Piemonte).
