Cloud Enhanced Open Software Defined Mobile Wireless Testbed for City-Scale Deployment
The COSMOS project is aimed at design, development, and deployment of a city-scale advanced wireless testbed in order to support real-world experimentation on next-generation wireless technologies and applications.
A main goal of the COSMOS project is to transform the testbed-generated research into an innovative learning platform for K-12 students, in New York City and particularly in West Harlem.
Radio nodes in COSMOS provide a mix of fully programmable SDRs for flexible wireless experimentation as well as commercial hardware capable of supporting networking and applications research with currently available end-user devices
The testbed is intended to enable several new classes of wireless experiments not currently supported by testbeds available to the research community. The “sweet spot” for experimenters is ultra-high access bandwidth coupled with low latency mobile networks and edge cloud services, an attractive target that could enable a new class of applications such as AR/VR for mobile users or cloud-assisted connected cars.
