Up to 30 percent of 16,000 South Bend public school students lack reliable internet access at home. That’s nearly 5,000 students who can’t use school-provided Chromebooks at home to read textbooks and turn in their work online In 2012, enFocus grew out of Notre Dame’s Engineering, Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence Master’s program (ESTEEM). Fellows work as nonprofit consultants on tech projects in the local community.
The recent research paper entitled “Spectrum Rights in Outer Space: Interference Management for Mega-constellations” was published on August 2, 2022. In this work, the authors examine the governance of non-Geostationary communication satellites (NGSOs) and propose alternative spectrum sharing approaches.
SpectrumX Policy Outreach Director, External Advisory Board member react to release of FCC, NTIA memorandum of understanding
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) published a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Tuesday, August 2, that the two agencies will be increasing their coordination on spectrum management efforts. Monisha Ghosh, SpectrumX Policy Outreach Director, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame and former Chief Technology Officer at the FCC, and Janice Obuchowski, SpectrumX External Advisory Board member, President and Chief Executive Officer of Freedom Technologies, and former Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information, within the Department of Commerce, NTIA, offered their comments.
The National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) is pleased to announce the Women in Spectrum Scholarship program. NSC intends to name at least 5 Spectrum Scholars during the inaugural year of this program (2022-2023). With this program, the NSC is hoping to further develop the pipeline of talented women engineers entering fields related to spectrum and communications.
A recent article published in the technology magazine IEEE Spectrum focused on the clash of U.S. billionaires over spectrum resources. The article, “SpaceX and Dish’s super-shady war for the world, or, why three billionaires are girding for battle over spectrum supremacy – why it matters,” was published on July 15, 2022.

PAWR: Platforms and Testbeds for Wireless Experimentation and Data Collection
Tommaso Melodia, William L. Smith Professor at Northeastern University
March 7th, 2022 | 4:30 pm (ET)
Virtual – Registration Required
Abstract: This talk will present an overview of existing testbeds and platforms available to the wireless research community for prototyping, experimentation, and data collection with a variety of
wireless technologies and scenarios, and with a focus on virtualized and softwarized wireless systems. The talk will discuss the NSF Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research Program and its resources for over-the-air experimentation and at-scale emulation, as well as a number of tools available to the research community for experiment design and analysis.
Bio: Tommaso Melodia is the William Lincoln Smith Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston. He is the Founding Director of the
Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things and the Director of Research for the PAWR Project Office. He received his Laurea (integrated BS and MS) from the University of Rome – La Sapienza and
his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2007. He is an IEEE Fellow and recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER award. Prof. Melodia is serving as Editor in Chief for Computer Networks, and was the Technical Program Committee Chair for IEEE Infocom 2018, and General Chair for ACM MobiHoc 2020, IEEE SECON 2019, ACM Nanocom 2019, and ACM WUWNet 2014. Prof. Melodia’s research on modeling, optimization, and experimental evaluation of wireless networked systems has been funded by US federal agencies and industry. https://ece.northeastern.edu/wineslab/people/tommaso/melodia.jpg
