INESC TEC participates in project that intends to revolutionise communications in datacentres

A team from the Centre for Telecommunications and Multimedia (CTM) of INESC TEC will participate, over the next three years, in the European project TERAPOD.

27th December 2017

The objective of this project is to create, test and provide new forms of wireless communication capable of responding to the demand for high-speed connections in the coming decades, namely by demonstrating a wireless communications system in a datacentre scenario in the THz frequency band.

The CTM researchers involved in this project are Luís Pessoa, Henrique Salgado, Vítor Tavares and Maria Inês Carvalho, who have the task of developing new array antennas, specifically for the 300 GHz band, which will be integrated in different types of transceiver devices.

This project started on 1 September 2017 and has a duration of 3 years. The project coordinator is the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), Ireland.


The kick-off meeting was held on 13 and 14 September in Waterford, Ireland, and INESC TEC was represented by CTM researcher Luís Pessoa.

This project was funded under the H2020-EU.2.1.1 programme. - INDUSTRIAL LEADERSHIP - Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies - Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and has a total funding of around 3.5 million euros.
