CONNECT researchers have won the 5G Spectrum Sharing Challenge at IEEE’s ‘DySpan 2015’ Conference in Stockholm, Sweden. The team’s contribution was entitled, “Coexistence through Adaptive Sensing and Markov Chains”.

The team, captained by Dr Justin Tallon, a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Linda Doyle at the CONNECT Centre at Trinity College Dublin, included: Christian Bluemm (EADS Innovation Works, Germany); Andre Puschmann (Ilmenau University of Technology, Germany); Francisco Paisana (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland); Jonathan van de Belt (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland); Nicholas J. Kaminski (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland); Hamed Ahmadi (University College Dublin, Ireland); and Paolo Di Francesco (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland).

The team beat off strong competition from two dozen other engineers representing universities from across Europe and the United States to win the award.

“The DySpan conference attracts the best minds in future radio communication systems every year,” according to Professor Linda Doyle, Director of CONNECT. “To win a prize is a significant achievement.”
