    The Norwegian National Railways (NSB) awarded an order for a total of 50 Flinker Leichter Innovativer Regional Triebzug (FLIRT) trains (Figure 1) plus an option for 100 further trains to Stadler Rail in August. This fleet renewal represents the largest order ever placed by the NSB. The order consists of 26 five-car train sets for the S-Rail operation in the Oslo area. An additional 24 train sets w...

    In this article, we focus on the vision of spectrally aware CR that comprises handsets automatically making use of under-utilized spectrum by sequentially hopping into spectrum gaps across a broad frequency range. The topics discussed in this article are based on a project funded by Ofcom (the U.K. Communications Regulator) to investigate the issues surrounding the introduction of CR technology.

    Recently, we have seen a lot of industry activity that explores alternative architectures based on a multihop relay model for future wireless networks. This type of relay-based architecture is incited by an expected tenfold increase in peak data rates and two times increase in spectral efficiency of the future beyond third generation (3G) and fourth generation (4G) systems relative to the current ...

    Shifting spatial signal processing in multiantenna systems from the digital base band to the RF front-end allows the development of energy efficient (green) MIMO radios. An integrated transceiver using RF-MIMO is designed in 0.25 mum SiGe technology together with a four-element antenna array. Low correlation between the antennas was achieved by using different diversity techniques and by optimizin... View full abstract»

    In this article, we propose and describe a functional architecture (FA) for the efficient radio and spectrum resource management of the anticipated future compound communication systems. This work comprises an advancement of the FA that has been initially proposed within end-to-end reconfigurability - phase 2 (E2R II) project and has been enhanced to incorporate cognitive and self-x capabilities t...

    This article presents a way to manage and control home networking and, more specifically, a method to control the QoS within a HN. For providing this control, a new advanced platform was developed, based on a KP and unified knowledge management policies. This solution is very important for the development of mesh-networks within the home with adequate use of the combination of WiFi and PLC network... View full abstract»

    In this article, we will highlight how IMS can provide an excellent technological platform to overcome these limitations. We demonstrate that IMS is a suitable platform for developing a highly scalable framework for unified access of information stemming from globally distributed and heterogeneous sensor networks. Overall, such a framework will facilitate more intelligent, invisible, and autonomou... View full abstract»

    This article focuses on an often-encountered gap between the assumptions of the engineer that designs "something," versus how the users handle this "something" when it is deployed in the users' own context. In an effort to investigate end-users' perspectives relating to this gap, Ericsson Research conducted a user-centered study in collaboration with Augur Marknadsanalys, a Swedish company special...

    In this article, we introduce an algorithm to update the channel estimation in a flat fading channel. We assume an initial estimate of the channel is available, possibly from a training sequence, and the algorithm enhances this estimation so that longer packets and/or better BER can be achieved. The algorithm can work with any MIMO system but, when combined with VBLAST, can be implemented with a m... View full abstract»

    In this article, we have described and analyzed the performance of a dual-antenna based Doppler spread mitigation technique for DAB Mode 4 mobile reception at L-band. Laboratory test results indicate a significant improvement in terms of pseudo-BER performance by using only two antenna elements and an MMSE type interpolator. This technique allows vehicles to reach speeds of 150 km/h while maintain... View full abstract»

    This article presented landmark overlays for urban vehicular routing environments (LOUVRE), a density-based landmark overlay routing protocol for urban vehicular environments. We described the concept and the protocol as well as a novel distributed traffic density estimation scheme. We implemented the protocol in Qualnet and evaluated the feasibility of LOUVRE by comparing it with the benchmarks G... View full abstract»
