Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME)

Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), founded in 1782, has nearly 100 departments and institutes operating within the structure of eight faculties, having about 1200 lecturers, researchers. The Budapest University of Technology and Economics currently teaches more than 23,000 students in 19 university departments, 13 doctorate schools and 1 masters' school, and offers further specialist training in more than 40 fields. This Institute (formerly known as the Technical University of Budapest, TUB) is the leading educational and research institution in the field of Engineering in Hungary. The university has contractual arrangements with more than 120 universities in 39 countries. BME has also established partnerships with 142 universities in 17 countries as part of the Socrates / Erasmus programme to encourage student and teacher mobility.
In the project one department participates behalf of the Institute: the Department of Telecommunications (DT). The profile of the department is network and transport layer protocols and mechanisms in IP networks, QoS mechanisms, network security, wideband multiple access methods, channel equalisation, IP mobility, 3G, 4G mobile systems and architectures, intelligent mobile agents, software defined radio and quantum informatics in communications. During the 5th and 6th framework IST projects BME has been involved to many consortiums. In particular, the DT is participating to the IST Specific Targeted Research Project PHOENIX project which deals with joint source and channel coding. DT also participates the Network of Excellence (NoE) NEWCOM (NoE for Wireless COMmunications), which collects the most famous and accepted industrial and educational partners of Europe, whose primary aim is to develop/teach materials connected to wireless communication.

Role in the project

In the project BOSS, BME contributes to each working package, excluding WP3. The main activity of the BME group will focus on the networking issues of the BOSS Architecture. Together with the partners, BME determines those network and transport mechanisms which are required in order to provide secure, quality sensible QoS supported services in a heterogeneous environment. Besides, BME manages the dissemination work, publishing the results of the project and creating an electronic platform for the project’s internal and external communication; and also contributes to the BOSS system specification, demonstration and evaluation.
