Novel network architectures and virtualized software networks

Mission: 

We aim at leading the definition of new network architectures focusing on reducing the latency to the minimum, and increasing the bandwidth and number of devices connected to the network, through the development of advanced technologies that will enable new generations of mobile broadband networks to create new business opportunities for customers.

Vision: 

Future mobile communications networks will act as a catalyst to encourage industries from all sectors to exploit their possibilities and generate use cases that were previously unthinkable. In this sense, the Telecom sector will be the fundamental pillar on which the changes will settle, for the future scenarios, in sectors such as eHealth, automotive, industry 4.0 or media & entertainment.

Values: 

Thanks to our long trajectory over the years in National and European R&D programs, we have gained great expertise in new technologies that enable the development of future communications networks, such as Software Networks, NFV, SDN, Containers, Management and Orchestration, Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC), among others. This allows us to make the new mobile communications generations a reality.
