ECE Wins Best Paper Award at WiNTECH
Computer Engineering PhD student Lorenzo Bertizzolo, along with co-authors PhD student Leonardo Bonati, ECE Research Assistant Professor Emrecan Demirors, and Professor Tommaso Melodia won the Best Paper Award at the 13th ACM Workshop on Wireless Network Testbeds, Experimental evaluation & Characterization (WiNTECH) in Los Cabos, Mexico on October 25th.
The paper “Arena: A 64-antenna SDR-based Ceiling Grid Testbed for Sub-6 GHz Radio Spectrum Research” presents Arena, an open-access software-defined radio-based wireless testing platform formed of a grid of 64 antennas mounted on the ceiling of the 4th floor of Northeastern University ISEC building. Arena experimental platform has the ability to foster new technology development in the sub-6 GHz spectrum bands. It ensures a reconfigurable, scalable, and repeatable experimental evaluation in a real wireless indoor environment.
