The Hubs are geared to address research challenges in three broad areas, namely, network-of-networks, wireless and wired spectrum and telco cloud & next generation computing for telecommunication. Additionally, as part of federated telecoms hub a Joint Open Infrastructure for Networks Research (JOINER) is also being developed to support collaborative experimentation and experimentation at scale across the Hubs’ research ecosystem and beyond.
