Development of Rebroadcasting for DAB+ Broadcasters in Case of Failure of the Distribution Link (incl. Simulation and Field Trial)
The project investigates and evaluates how to insert digital rebroadcast reception in Europe, where the DAB+ radio standard experiencing rapid growth. DAB+ can be used for regular programme services as well as for strengthening the resilience of broadcast networks and for the complete broadcast supply of the population in the event of disaster.
The aim of this project is the development of devices and techniques which allows reception of a DAB+ signal, recreation of a full DAB ensemble, timing information correction and re-distribution to a DAB+ transmitter. The functionality of the approach will be tested with operating transmitter infrastructures together with transmitter and receiver manufacturers. Furthermore, a state broadcaster will provide the content and will verify if the content will still be correct after using the proposed approach.

The funded project "AI4Mobile" predicts the Quality of Service parameters in communication networks in an end-to-end manner using advanced AI methods and tools. There`s a strong focus on mobility of the clients and dynamics of the observed system
In association with other companies and research institutes RFmondial takes on the development of a reliable infrastructure for measurement datas as well as the recording and pre-processing of training datas.
