At a glance

At its Nuremberg location, Fraunhofer IIS has some 200 scientists who have now spent more than 15 years developing various applications based on wireless communications and positioning systems. The institute is counted among the recognized experts in this field.


In addition to the wide range of measuring services available at the Nordostpark location, the L.I.N.K. Test and Application Center offers a mobile lab for performing measurements and tests on new kinds of wireless communications and positioning systems regardless of location.   


What we offer

  • Evaluation of communication systems under different environmental conditions with regard to reception quality, mobile influences, ranges, coexistence and interference resistance during mobile measurement runs

 Potential communications systems:

 - Mobile networks, e.g. 5G, LTE

 - IoT communication, e.g. mioty


  • Evaluation of positioning systems under different environmental conditions in terms of accuracy, reliability and range

Potential positioning systems:

- Positioning in mobile networks, e.g. 5G, LTE

- Positioning in IoT networks, e.g. mioty

- Proprietary systems based on field strength, time-of-flight measurement, angle measurement orphase measurement

- Satellite-based localization independent of additional infrastructure, e.g. Galileo, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and SBAS
