PASIPHAE is a modern telecommunication systems laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software tools, up-to-date experimentation devices, in-house equipment and outdoor portable and mobile units capable to support not only the Informatics Engineering department educational and training objectives, but also and most predominant to pave the way towards high level research, support development efforts and gear-up rich activity in prototyping ICT fields solutions. Among PASIPHAE’s infrastructure are:
A complete end-to-end DVB-T/DVB-S broadcasting platform (MPEG2/MPEG4 encoder, media router, encapsulator, multiplexer, modulator, amplifier, receivers) for real time broadcast programs, on demand services and interactive applications, along with a satellite ground station for media satellite broadcasting (has operated with HellasSat II).
Free-Space Optical communication links with data transfer capability of up-to 2Gbps, and Microwave RF communication links operating at 2.1GHz for point-to-point digital transmission/reception.
A 10m mast for terrestrial broadcasting, wireless networking applications and telecommunication services.
A prototype mobile unit for conducting non-ionising electromagnetic radiation (NIER) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) measurements.
