A dedicated eHealth platform for real-time remote monitoring & support for patients with chronic heart conditions

About the project

The project assesses the use of modern wireless communication technologies such as 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) with the goal of building a next-generation remote heath monitoring platform. Unlike the case of legacy Internet applications, Critical IoT applications such as e-health have stricter network performance requirements, such as a higher level of security, high resiliency, low latency, scalability, and interoperability with existing communication systems. In order to fulfil the requirements of such an application, it needs a world-class approach in the design and testing of the entire communication ecosystem, from the end device all the way to the application server.
