The Georgia Tech Broadband Institute
is a multidisciplinary center that seeks to understand and advance the ever-evolving array of
broadband technologies and services.
The Institute brings together the best
minds in academia and
industry to define significant
research problems in all aspects of broadband communications. Areas of expertise span wireless and
optical systems and multimedia communications, including the contemporary themes of sensor networks,
cognitive radio, information security, distribution of personalized content, mobile gaming, and
such diverse residential applications as Three-Screen and 3D-Television, and Aging-in-Place. These technology and application themes are complemented by programs involving multiple peer centers across the Georgia Tech campus. These activities cover broadband policy and economics, and the visualization of dynamics and interconnections in the broadband communications ecosystem.
facilities enabled by seed
funding by the Georgia Research Alliance provide practical training to students while promoting compelling
versions of industry relevant research.
Industry investments in our programs are leveraged by significant funding of broadband research from federal
