Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): Izhevsk State Technical University (ISTU) was founded in 1952. Today over 20,000 students are getting education at its 12 faculties and 5 branches in other towns of the Udmurt Republic (UR) and neighboring regions, over 900 academic and scientific staff are reading lecturers and doing fundamental and applied research.
REC “Radio Engineering” is established as a division of ISTU. It comprises the following departments of ISTU: Radio Engineering, Communication Networks and Commutation Systems, and designing bureau “Radio Communications” – a branch of OJSC “Sarapul Radio Plant”. The REC’s team has over 30 years of experience in developing of radio communication means and introducing them into production. 9 products have been developed and introduced into mass production, including: subscribers’ terminals, equipment for stationary communication centers, such as base stations and switching centers. The equipment developed is intended for transmitting data and speech along non-stationary communication channels. The research team comprises: 2 Doctors and 10 Candidates of Science. Undergraduate and postgraduate students of the departments in REC are actively involved in the research as well.
Expertise offered The research team is ready to discuss all possible proposals on conducting joint research in the frameworks of potential (supposed) project that address engineering technologies for large scale, distributed and interacting systems for monitoring and control, including wireless sensor networks.
In particular, the team is planning to continue the research in developing the methods of network topology optimization and algorithms of their functioning by the criterion of the minimum of energy costs while preserving the required quality of data transfer, which can also be implemented in the frameworks of the potential (supposed) joint project.
The actuality of this problem solution is determined by the current situation with the availability of technical means at Russian law-enforcement bodies and special services that is not always appropriate due to constant demand in responsiveness and reaction accuracy in extreme situations, when there is a need to transfer large volumes of digital data, provide the immediate access to databases, photo- and video-materials.
These requirements are completely satisfied with the technology and system of broadband transfer of digital data MEA (Mesh Enabled Architecture – self-organizing network architecture). MEA systems are able to provide a high-speed transfer of digital data, video and speech communication, as well as location detection.
MEA system applies the most modern protocols for data transfer, thus considerably increasing the reliability of its operation and protection against unauthorized access. Any device in the system operates as a router / transmitter for the other network components. It means that each device can be connected with an access point either directly or via “neighboring” devices. In MEA system several subscriber terminals within the radio access area respectively to each other, automatically arrange a virtual communication network. Moreover, this network is completely operable both for stationary and mobile terminals. Such distributed structure considerably increases the systems stability to rejects, as well the overall carrying capacity. High transfer speeds of secondary and notional information result in the growth of energy consumption of network nodes.
Since mobile subscriber terminals have limited energy resources, when arranging a MEA system, first of all, the problem of decreasing energy consumption for data transfer has to be considered by the selection of network topology, algorithms for determining the connectivity and methods of access to the network that define the main areas of the present research.

Description of previous and present experience in International Cooperation ISTU has 43 bilateral agreements with higher education institutions from Europe, the USA, Asia and Africa. ISTU is taking part in a consortium of TEMPUS-Tacis project JEP_ 26093_2005 “Communicative Approach in Teaching Languages (CATCH)”, period 01.09.2006 – 31.08.2009. In the cooperation with Leuphana University (Lueneburg, Germany) ISTU was taking part in Integrated Project “Re-engineering of natural stone production chain through knowledge based processes, eco-innovation and new organizational paradigms” (I-STONE) financially supported by European Commission (contract No NMP2-CT-2005-515762). Every year students and teachers of ISTU apply for individual scholarships to DAAD, IREX, etc. ISTU is a signatory of Magna Charta Universitatum in Bologna, Italy and a full member of European University Association (EUA).
