    • A realistic open-data-based cost model for wireless backhaul networks in rural areas 

      Gemmi, Gabriele; Cerdà Alabern, Llorenç; Maccari, Leonardo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Broadband Internet provision is an increasing demand in many rural areas and wireless internet service providers have emerged as an opportunity to fill this need. However, this type of operator typically consists of a small ...
    • Anomaly detection for fault detection in wireless community networks using machine learning 

      Cerdà Alabern, Llorenç; Iuhasz, Gabriel; Gemmi, Gabriele (Elsevier, 2023-03-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Machine learning has received increasing attention in computer science in recent years and many types of methods have been proposed. In computer networks, little attention has been paid to the use of ML for fault detection, ...
