Chair & Research

The Chair

The objective of the Vodafone Chair for Mobile Communications Systems at the TU Dresden is to carry out leading-edge research to advance wireless communications technology and solve industry relevant problems related to next generation wireless systems. Thorough fundamental research as well as close industry co-operations are key to the success of our projects. Wireless/mobile communications are driven by three industry branches, namely

  • Network operators,
  • Equipment manufacturers and
  • Semiconductor manufactures,

with each branch having a different view on problems and solutions. Each of these viewpoints is addressed in our research ensuring that the results have practical relevance and significance. The Vodafone Chair thus welcomes industry contacts and partnerships to help meet this objective.

The chair's current focus lies on physical layer research, with a special emphasis on wireless radio network problems (wireless networks capacity), wireless modems (baseband algorithms), RF imperfections and IC implementation architectures. Of particular interest are problems and solutions, which are found in a tradeoff between these focus areas. The large variety of projects and work performed at the chair also aims at encouraging graduates to start their own companies.

Industry Partner Program

The Industry Partner Program (IPP) facilitates a platform for companies to sustain close contact to on-going research activities at our chair. The sponsoring program provides an opportunity for companies:

  • to support our research activities,
  • to enhance teaching, e.g. by giving guest lectures,
  • to present themselves to students, e.g. by holding workshops and seminars on our premises,
  • to get in closer touch with our researchers, and
  • to obtain first hand updates on our activities.
