Our first satellite antenna was finally installed in Kąkolewo campus

At the end of November, despite the unfavourable weather and with some delay, our first satellite antenna was finally installed in Kąkolewo campus. Engineers from ORBIT company, the antenna manufacturer, together with collegues from TESPOL company, the system supplier, implemented this complicated operation smoothly and without any disturbances.

It took two days to assemble the radome and the antenna reflector on the ground, while on the third day the components were moved to the top of the tower using a crane and fastened safely. During day 4 the antenna system was calibrated and tested, and finally we were trained by the specialist from ORBIT in system maintenance. We plan to do the final testing, including communication with a satellite, when all works inside the technical room are finished and the communication equipment is installed and configured.

We encourage you to watch a short video showing this interesting operation – link here.

Nokia at the Poznań University of Technology

Spektrum Science Club had the pleasure of hosting representatives of the Wroclaw branch of Nokia, Marcin Szczukiewicz and Piotr Wróbel.

At the open meeting, students had the opportunity to listen to a fascinating lecture about the project that Nokia is implementing together with NASA - namely, the construction of a 4G network on the moon. Participants of the lecture learned, among other things, what is the difference between designing a network that is to operate in space and one that is to operate in earthly conditions, as well as how many questions need to be asked and how many unexpected challenges designers face. After the lecture, the students had the opportunity to see the equipment that is to fly to the moon with their own eyes and ask about any issues they were interested in. The great punchline of this meeting was that dreams are there to be fulfilled, and the living proof of this was the story of our speaker Marcin Szczukiewicz, who has been interested in astronomy since childhood and now has the opportunity to participate in an international space project.

We are happy to announce that our satellite ground station, located at Piotrowo campus, is now fully tested and operational. It can be used for communications with Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, using amateur VHF/UHF bands. The station is equipped with two high-gain Yagi-Uda antennas, powered by ICOM IC-9700 transceiver. For signal reception SDR receivers (FunCube Dongle & USRP B210) are used. The antennas are installed on rotators which can track the fast moving objects on the sky. A parabolic tracking antenna with 3m diameter and the septum feed operating in C-band is also installed in the ground station. It will be used in a high-throughput transmission system developed in our Institute in cooperation with Kyiv Polytechnic Institute and SatRev company. The first Cubesat satellite with our transmitter on board should be launched by the end of 2023! Keep you fingers crossed

COST INTERACT Training School on Open RAN

In the last days, from 5th to 7th July 2022, Poznan University of Technology and Rimedo Labs have organized under the auspices of COST INTERACTCA20120 the summer training school on “Open-RAN networks: from theory to implementation.”

The meeting was held in a hybrid model, where both in-person and remote participants were allowed to join and benefit from the school. The key focus of the school was on Open Ran, which is a recent and vibrant trend in the telecommunications market, especially in the 5G area, aiming at the realization of various challenging objectives. These include at first spot splitting of a base station into several functional components, including a central unit (CU), distributed unit (DU), and a remote unit (RU). Next, they deal with opening interfaces to enable interoperability (especially Open Fronthaul) and disaggregating software from hardware in the RAN domain. Finally, the Open RAN introduces advanced automation into the RAN system by employing an abstracted entity to manage the radio networks, i.e., the RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC); it serves as a platform for xApps (optimization applications in the RAN domain) and rApps (optimization applications in the management plane) using AI/ML.


The participants of the school will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and experience in various domains of Open RAN during three highly attractive training days. The first day was mainly oriented on the theoretic background related to the Open RAN domain, whereas the second day was more industry-oriented. Finally, on the third day, the hand-on labs have been provided to the attendees. The participants have access to the prerequisites for O-RAN software installation, have been guided in real-time through the arcana of xApp implementation in SD-RAN, and have access to the recordings afterward, so they can easily reproduce the whole lab.


The overall event was highly successful; there were overall 70+ registrations, where 18 of them have been in-persons. Also, many speakers participated in person, which makes the school highly interactive with very strong off-side discussions and connections. Finally, the scores received in the evaluation surveys circulated among the participants are very high, which proves the impact of the school. Such great achievement was reached due to the fantastic engagement of both speakers, local organizers, but also the in-person attendees who actively participated in the event.


As school co-organizers, we would like to thank all the persons involved for their positive attitude and vivid involvement in the event, which made it highly successful. We would also like to thank our event partners, Rimedo Labs, EURACON and COST CA20120 INTERACT, for the support and the opportunity to organize it! Special thanks go to all the speakers for their valuable insights, namely:


Dedicated thanks go also to the local supporters:

A new grant for our students from the Spektrum Science Club.

Students involved in the Spektrum Science Club operating at the Institute of Radiocommunications obtained a Rector's grant for the implementation of the project entitled "Study of the influence of the electromagnetic field on plant development".

Students involved in the Spektrum Science Club operating under the supervision of dr. Krzysztof Cichoń from the Institute of Radiocommunications obtained a Rector's grant for the implementation of the project entitled "Study of the influence of the electromagnetic field on plant development".

The goal of the project is to build a set of stands enabling the subjecting of selected, small plants to the influence of a homogeneous electromagnetic field in the VHF and UHF frequency range. The plants breeding conditions outside the electromagnetic field influence will be standardized, the condition of the tested plants will be permanently monitored, and the TEM line will be used to generate a homogeneous field.

Obtaining funds for the project is a great success for students who have prepared an application for funding their research work. The Spektrum Scientific Club has been operating at the Institute of Radiocommunications since 2021. The main goal of the Club's activity is the implementation of research projects in the field of radiocommunication and taking care of the scientific development of students by organizing training courses and thematic excursions.

The meetings are of international nature, and all previous editions are available as streaming on the YouTube channel, which has almost 1.2 thousand. subscribers: https://www.youtube.com/c/Global5GEvolution. During the meeting, dr. inz. Adrian Kliks presented the concept of using the so-called artificial intelligence at the edge of the telecommunications network (Edge Intelligence) for the autonomous movement of vehicles (convoys). This concept is being studied in detail in the OPUS project "Wireless communication between vehicles in a convoy using rich contextual information and dynamic spectrum access". In particular, the use of Q-leraning and Federated Learning methods for dynamic selection of communication channels was considered.
