The Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain has awarded in 2018 the consortium formed by Galgus and the University of Seville the WiFiciency project (RTC-2017-6255-7) within the call “Retos-Colaboración”. This is a technological innovation project between the Galgus R&D Department and the ACE-TI group of the University of Seville, which aims to develop and test new modules for CHT (Cognitive Hotspot Technology), the embedded software for Galgus WiFi networks. These new modules will explore beyond the state of the art in two main areas:
- The automatic optimization of resources to improve network performance (adaptive load balancing, interference classification, congestion control, anomaly detection…).
- Building value-added functions for the network owner (device location, intrusion detection, user profiling, etc.)
The project, entitled “Development of technology for cooperative, multi-platform, efficient and context-adapted WiFi networks” has been financed with 579.729,50 € (in the form of loan and grant) for its development over three years 2018-2019-2020.
