—This paper presents the Forging Online Education through FIRE (FORGE) initiative, which aims to transform the Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE) testbed facilities, already vital for European research, into a learning resource for higher education. From an educational perspective this project aims at promoting the notion of Self-Regulated(More)
—In this paper we present an approach towards empowering online telecommunications engineering education by enabling hands-on remote experimentation over Trinity College Dublin's wireless testbed. Moreover, in order to offer a flexible testbed, capable of fulfilling the different and particular requirements of experimenters, we have created a framework that(More)

Abstract—End-users increasingly expect ubiquitous connec-tivity while on the move. With a variety of wireless access technologies available, we expect to always be connected to the technology that(More)
Due to the increasing popularity of mobile devices and the growing development of wireless networks, nowadays automobiles are able to communicate among them and with the infrastructure using different wireless technologies, thus improving not only communications but also safety on the roads. In order to improve communications by maintaining the Quality of(More)
Wireless technologies have been widely deployed in the last decade making users demand for continuous connectivity. Users not only demand being attached to a network, but possibly to the one with the highest performance, or at least to a network able to fulfill their requirements. To choose the best network among different candidates, the IEEE 802.21(More)
Regulatory bodies worldwide are currently considering opening up radar bands to more dynamic spectrum access techniques. There is, however, a lack of experimental testbed models to support experimental investigation of spectrum sharing with radar systems. This paper describes an experimental framework capable of emulating a wide range of radar systems and(More)
The recent trend, wireless communications has became one of the striving areas for the developments of cellular technologies. This is because, many people around the world would like to connect to the other, seamlessly, anytime anywhere. Therefore, the selection of the best network connection becomes crucial with the best quality of service. For that reason(More)
