CTVR is Irelandís National Telecommunications Research Centre. Headquartered in TCD, we have 120 researchers from NUIM, UL, UCC, Tyndall, DIT and DCU who not only undertake world-leading telecommunications research, but also provide post-graduate education and deliver technology transfer, technology commercialisation and community outreach. Critically, we have very close collaborations with over 150 leading companies from Ireland and around the world. These collaborations help frame our research which aims to develop the networks of the future, and bring high value jobs and economic impact to Ireland.
We are very interested in active collaborations with companies, both large and small. Engagements vary from short, focused projects to deliver very specific company requirements to longer-term research-focused work. Our research teams are highly skilled and adaptive. We are open to and welcome enquiries of all kinds.
The focus of our research is on wireless and optical networks . We work at both the architectural level and the underlying technologies/components level. On the architecture level, we have world-class expertise in wireless networking, optical networking, cognitive networks, dynamic spectrum access networks, machine-learning, advanced optimisation and game theory. On the technology level we have world-class expertise in RF design, antenna design, agile radios, software radio, cognitive radio, tunable optical components, photonics integration and modelling and advanced thermal management. Our work spans the theoretical & simulation domains as well as the practical and experimental. We also have significant expertise in the area of telecommunications policy.
CTVR is an SFI Centre for Science & Engineering Technology (CSET). We also attract significant funding from Enterprise Ireland, the HEA, the IRC, the European Framework Programme and direct Industry funding.
