The Politehnica University of Bucharest (UPB) chooses HTZ Communications for its research centre. The newly opened Innovation Hub is sponsored by Vodafone. The Centre allows students to undertake R&D on emerging technologies at the highest levels by providing access to state-of-the-art software and hardware for 5G and 6G technologies, nanosatellites and drones.
This unique environment gives students hands-on experience with leading software programs in an innovative learning environment, with the outputs from these research projects shared across the country. Vodafone aims to increase its footprint of innovation hubs at other Universities and academic institutions in Romania.
HTZ Communications operates in high-frequency bands occupied by 5G. With access to an extensive library of royalty-free map data, users can use terrain, clutter heights and buildings to model wireless connectivity, network latency and capacity. The high-resolution maps allow signal loss modelling, often characterised by the geo-spatial environment. Users can leverage building and clutter data to model the impact of mmWave propagation on network coverage.
