INTECS Informatica e Tecnologia del Software S.p.a. is an Italian private industry, which has been providing for more than 35 years the major European and Italian organisations in the design and implementation of advanced electronic systems in the
automotive, railways, space, telecommunications, and defence domains. INTECS is full
member of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and it is associated to the following industrial alliances: ARTEMIS-IA (A-member), AUTOSAR (premium member) and GENIVI (associate member).
The Telecommunications Business Unit of INTECS will be involved in the project. The BU specializes in R&D, software solutions, and services for the telecommunications industry. With a solid background on past and current technologies for wireless (e.g., TETRA, UMTS, LTE, WiMAX) and wired backhauling (e.g., Optical Burst Switching), the BU is now looking towards the emerging communication paradigms, like the Software Defined Radio (SDR), the Internet of things and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. Its portfolio of clients includes some of the major specialized European companies (Ericsson, Selex Elsag, Motorola, AnsaldoSTS, Italtel, Telit, etc.). The BU is currently involved in the FP7-AAT Integrated Project SANDRA (Seamless Aeronautical Networking Through Integration of Data Links, Radios and Antennas), with the role of implementing using SDR the Mobile Station MAC layer of AeroMACS, which is a special profile of WiMAX being defined for airport connectivity.
