WInnComm-Europe 2019 to Feature Fraunhofer, NordiaSoft, OpenWifi and VIAVI in Two Day Innovation Showcase

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#SCAlt;/agt;–The Wireless Innovation Forum, a non-profit international industry
association dedicated to diving the future of radio communications and
systems worldwide, is proud to announce that Fraunhofer, NordiaSoft,
OpenWiFi and VIAVI will participate in the Innovation Showcase of its European
Summit on Communications Technologies (WInnComm-Europe) 2019.

Hosted by Fraunhofer in Berlin, Germany, 15-16 May, WInnComm Europe is
the premier venue to network with and learn from the leading innovators
in the advanced wireless market to gain a functional knowledge of
relevant emerging opportunities and technologies.

Demonstration synopses provided by the participants include:

  • The
    Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS
    is one of the
    world’s leading application-oriented research institutions for
    microelectronic and IT system solutions and services. The institute’s
    Communication Systems Division develops both civil and military
    software defined radio (SDR) technologies. The focus is on system
    design, requirement engineering, software and hardware development as
    well as contributions to standardization bodies. At WinnComm Europe
    2019 Fraunhofer IIS showcases an SDR platform for fast prototyping of
    new waveform applications or new technologies like MIMO in the
    tactical domain. It features a fully modular design from the antenna
    connector up to the application’s packet data. The platform is
    designed for lab use as well as for field trials. This demo will
    include several SDRs embedded in a small-scale version of our
    simulation, test, and reference environment (SumO). The setup is based
    on a cooperation with the Bundeswehr Technical Center for Information
    Technology and Electronics (WTD 81).
  • Software Defined System is the industry’s response to the
    ever-increasing complexity and flexibility requirements of today’s
    electronic systems. The Software Communications Architecture (SCA)
    enables the fulfillment of such requirements for complex heterogeneous
    embedded distributed systems. In this demonstration, NordiaSoft
    shows how SCA software can be developed using tools that combine
    model-driven design (MDD) and rapid application development (RAD).
    Using Zero Merge code generation technology, the business source code
    for an SCA component (modulator, encoder, etc.) is kept separate from
    the infrastructure code that deals with deploying, instantiating,
    configuring, connecting, inter-process communications, etc. This
    demonstration will show how the proposed approach provides the
    greatest potential of reuse for intellectual property.
  • Open WiFi will showcase the initial capability of our full
    stack real-time Wi-Fi design based on Software Defined Radio (SDR),
    which is related to the presentation “From laboratory to the field: An
    open source Software Defined Radio project coupled with native Linux
    driver framework”. The demo hardware is composed of Xilinx Zynq 7000
    SoC and Analog Devices AD9361 Radio Frequency (RF) front-end. The SoC
    contains FPGA and ARM cortex A9 processor. 802.11a/g OFDM transceiver,
    related data/control interface and low-level Media Access Control
    (MAC) are implemented in FPGA. The corresponding driver is implemented
    under Linux mac80211 framework. The driver, high level MAC/protocol
    and Linux Operating System (OS) are run on ARM processor. The demo
    will set up communication with a commercial Wi-Fi device, such as a
    cell phone or laptop. Traffic, such as ping, video, will run over the
    Wi-Fi link. On top of this basic standard compliant communication
    capability, two time slices will be set up across full stack.
    Different devices/traffics can be grouped into different time slices
    according to Quality of Service (QoS) requirements.
    (NASDAQ: VIAV) is a global provider of network test, monitoring and
    assurance solutions to communications service providers, enterprises,
    network equipment manufacturers, civil, government, military and
    avionics customers, supported by a worldwide channel community
    including VIAVI Velocity Partners. We deliver end-to-end visibility
    across physical, virtual and hybrid networks, enabling customers to
    optimize connectivity, quality of experience and profitability. VIAVI
    is also a leader in high performance thin film optical coatings,
    providing light management solutions to anti-counterfeiting, consumer
    electronics, automotive, defense and instrumentation markets. VIAVI’s
    booth will have the latest updates to our SCA Platform, including
    demonstrations of SCA AM, FM and DMR waveforms, user FPGAs, and a
    first-look at our WInnForum Transceiver 2.0 interface and our Signal
    Workshop signal generation and analysis suite running as SCA virtual
    test probes.

In addition to keynotes from Fraunhofer, BAAINBw, Netherlands Ministry
of Defense, Blackned and Rohde & Schwarz, additional speakers from
Leonardo, Thales, NordiaSoft, ESSOR, NATO, JTNC and additional
International Ministries of Defense including Great Britain, France,
Italy, and Finland will be featured in sessions spanning the two-day

Technical Sessions Software
Defined Systems and the SCA
and Networking
Aspects of Software Defined Systems
will feature presenters from
France, China, Germany, Belgium, and Ireland. The complete program with
presentation abstracts can be found here:
