Major Event (Highlighted Event)

The Spanish SLICES node (SLICES-ES) will be presented at this event, with the participation of IMDEA Networks, the University Carlos III of Madrid and the University of the Basque Country. Specifically, the first infrastructure open to the European scientific community for testing in the field of telecommunications will be set up in Madrid and will enable major breakthroughs to be achieved.

In addition, a service for international researchers will be announced, which will allow them to experiment with satellite communications devices for the Internet of Things, with coverage throughout Europe and with LoRa compatible technology (a wireless technology that allows sending data over long distances) through the Echostar-XXI satellite.
