energy-autonomous Portable Access points for INfrastructure-LESS networks

Project description

Bringing broadband internet connectivity to remote areas

Broadband access at work, in the home, in the car and just about everywhere else is a necessity. But the rapid increase in the use of broadband connectivity finds wireless networks reaching far beyond the power grids. This is why energy autonomy is so important. The EU-funded PAINLESS project will pioneer limitlessly-scalable green and energy-autonomous portable network nodes to keep the internet running in remote areas. The solution integrates and optimises wireless networks with renewable energy sources, radiated energy harvesting and airborne access points and establishes disruptive performance benchmarks for the combined wireless power-and-information distribution. The project will train the first generation of experts in innovative energy-autonomous networks revolutionising the wireless networking technology environment.
