- The biggest infrastructure is the
IBM p690 Regatta Server - the largest and
fastest of its kind in this part
of the world. The server with four separate partitions named after the four
illustrious sons of Bengal - Acharya Prafulla Chandra Roy, Acharya Jagadish
Chandra Bose, Dr. Meghnad Saha and Dr. Satyendra Nath Bose - runs on both Unix
(IBM AIX) and GNU/Linux. It has 16 PowerPC4+ processors and a
total main memory
of 32 GB with flexibility of assigning variable amount of resources to the
partitions on the fly through the Hardware Monitoring Console.

of Computer Science & Engineering and Electronics & Tele-Communication
Engineering. Similar Wi-Fi LAN has been set up in the Salt Lake Campus of the
University linking all the departments.
- A Centre library with approximately 231 titles has been set up for use by
all members of cmcc the faculties involved in various project works in the
fields of mobile computing and communication.
- A comprehensive laboratory has been set up to perform experiments on various
physical layers of mobile communication as part of the central facilities of the
Centre for Mobile Computing & Communication.
- An IBM p650 server has been installed in the month of July, 2005 at the Salt
Lake campus of the University and is currently operational.
Programs In The Immediate Future The following future activities are planned:

The School of Mobile computing and Communication has been established in
2006. The school has an objective of promoting study and research
activities in various areas of Mobile Computing and Distributed
Computing. An AICTE-approved 2-year
Post-Graduate Degree Course on Distributed & Mobile Computing is
being offered from 2006 academic session. The Current intake is 15. In
addition, the School regularly organizes short term courses in Mobile
and Distributed Computing.

The activities of the Centre are supported by faculty members of as many
as seven departments and schools who are working on 16
projects on various topics related to Mobile Computing &
Communication. These works have already given rise to many
international and national publications. External
organizations such as Indian Statistical Institute, Indian Institute of
Management, University of Calcutta, West Bengal University of
Technology, Defence Research Labs, ERTL, CDAC, Calcutta Telephones,
SAMEER Kolkata and IIT-Kharagpur are also actively contributing to these
Publications (2001 onwards)
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Irrigation and
Waterways Department, Govt. of West Bengal and Jadavpur University on
March 10, 2006 to further expand the Disaster Management program to
include the Rivers Mayurakshi and Kangsabati.
The Centre has a number of overseas collaborations in progress. These include
Rutgers University, University of Texas at Arlington, Lucent Technologies and
University of South Australia. In particular, the Centre is working with Rutgers
University on an ad-hoc networking of Wi-Fi access points to extend its reach of
wireless LAN . Jadavpur University has also been included to
take part in the on-line IEEE 802.11x based experimentation program on the
facilities created recently at Rutgers. Jadavpur University is the only university outside USA to have
access to this experimental set-up, which is accessible remotely through the
|Centre for Mobile
Computing & Communication, Jadavpur University, was set up in
November 2003 under the University Grants Commission Scheme of
"Universities with Potential for Excellence".
