HASC: Future Communications Hub in All-Spectrum Connectivity


The Hub in All-Spectrum Connectivity is focused on how to optimally combine wired and wireless internet technologies to achieve end-to-end connectivity.


This includes developing models to compare the capabilities of different wired and wireless techniques, investigating efficient interfaces and physical architectures, and analysing new fibres and their capabilities.

Our partnership brings together researchers from the Universities of Belfast, Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford (lead partner), Southampton, Imperial College and UCL. The Hubs form part of the UK Future Wireless Infrastructure Strategy, and we work closely with two other Hubs: TITAN, focusing on networks of networks, and CHEDDAR, focusing on cloud and edge computing.



The Hub is supported by substantial investment from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation, and the UK Department of Science, Innovation and Technology.
