Telco Infrastructure
Research, and Innovation

Explore the Telco Infrastructure at SnT that includes Software-Defined Radio, networks and vendor specific devices.


The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg conducts internationally competitive research in information and communication technology, ICT, with a focus on creating socio-economic impact. The centre attracts talented researchers from all over the world to work on collaborative projects with industry and the public sector. Since its creation in 2009, SnT has established partnerships with more than 60 organisations and launched 6 spin-offs. Technology Transfer plays an important role in the centre's strategy, you can find out more here.

This documentation provides details on the Telecommunication Infrastructure as well the value added services that are empowered via SnT Testbeds in Terrestrial and Non-Terrestrial Networks.

Hardware Infrastructure

Hardware Infra

The infra hardware assets allows designing, developing, testing, and validating terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks towards 5G and beyond. The infrastructure incoporate COTS dedicated hardware, usually when using a propietary software stack, and software-defined radios when using open-source software.

5G for Space Applications

The 5G-SpaceLab will allow to test, validate and demonstrate space operations for many different scenarios that includes Earth-orbiting satellite communications, Earth-Moon communications among many. The main goal of 5G-SpaceLab testbed and to present its initial capacities by introucing current 3GPP standards such as 5G and Beyond into the space applications. The mentioned capacities include the evaluation of different small satellite formation control and cooperation configurations for non-terrestrial 5G networks or the realistic emulation of a space mission control room for communications and remote control of lunar rovers.
