SIMULATING THE FUTURE OF MOBILE NETWORKS
Everything is connected. Europe is turning mobile based on new wireless networks and more and more advanced protocols. As new networks are developed it is crucial to ensure the coexistence between systems and avoid interference between them.
For manufacturers, telcos, authorities, and scientists the rapid development of wireless communication systems requires an continuous review of their interactions. Probabilistic simulations based on different interference scenarios and deep knowledge about how the involved systems work is needed. And that requires a scalable, solid and simple framework behind.
Jayway is a software partner for The European Communication Office (ECO), which is the permanent office of the CEPT, an organisation gathering 48 countries in the European continent that work together to harmonise the use of wireless communications in order to create a dynamic and efficient market.
Jayway has participated building and delivering an open source interference simulation tool, programmed in Java, which is scalable and free to use for key stakeholders around the world. Our solution architects took over a heritage of many stakeholders and a large technical debt in 2011 and has helped ECO clean up the code, remove bugs and develop a whole new and unique framework, which makes it possible for the users to independently develop and test their own radio and mobile systems.
Since the users can contribute their plugins to the community, the tool becomes more and more complete and allows for unique custom made interference calculations of increasing robustness.
The tool is widely used across the world and valued by its users and scientists.
