University of Cantabria

University of Cantabria is represented, in the LEXNET project, by the Network Planning and Mobile Communications Laboratory. It has around 25 members, with 9 permanent staff. Some of our researchers are also conducting their PhD studies. The group has a strong background in the participation in various European projects and collaborative initiatives. It is worth highlighting the strong activity which is currently being carried out within the IoT and Smart Cities realm: SmartSantander, OutSmart, Fed4Fire, Ear-IT.

Role & Activities in the project

The participation of our group with the LEXNET project is coiled around two main topics: (1) the analysis that the EMF exposure index might have on the performance of various communication protocols and procedures; and (2) the analysis and study of the performance and behavior of the techniques developed within the project over real platforms, integrating the corresponding dosimeters over the SmartSantander testbed.
