Advanced Broadband Communications Center
Specific Research Center (CER) within the Technical University of Catalunya ("Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya")
The Advanced Broadband Communications Center (CCABA is the acronym of 'Centre de Comunicacions Avançades de Banda Ampla') was set up in January 1994 with the aim of consolidating a multi-disciplinary research group. Currently this center integrates researchers from several Departments which have interests on complementary communications research fields: Integrated Broadband Communications, Optical Communications, and Radio and Mobile Communications.The research center is supported by the University and is being partially funded by the Spanish Education Ministry (MEC) and by the Research Commission of the Catalan Government (CIRIT-CUR) under several grants. Until December 1998 the CCABA was in charge of the management of the UPC Spanish National Host platform. In October 1998, the CCABA has been designated as a Specific Research Center of the UPC.
