Mobile Communications Group at UIB

The Mobile Communications Group (MCG) at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) aims at playing a relevant role in researching and advancing the necessary enabling technologies in mobile and wireless communications, including the physical, data link, transport, network and application layers, as well as their joint cross-layer optimisation.

The group's mission is to focus on long-term research on wireless communications, networking, signal processing and information theory, to maintain national and international activities in the creation and dissemination of knowledge, to provide an outstanding education in electrical engineering, and to serve both the public and private sectors through the collective experience and expertise of its members.

Our short-term research activities are now focused on the new generation of OFDMA-based wireless communications systems and their components. The group’s members are or have been recently involved and leading projects COSMOS (Cross-layer optimisation schemes in MIMO/OFDMA systems), MARIMBA (Cross-layer design applied to adaptive MIMO-MC/OFDM-CDMA based reconfigurable systems for integrated broadband wireless networks), XISPES (High-performance wireless networks for the health environment) and GESLOTEL (Wireless positioning for the tourism industry).
