Welcome to the FlexNets Initiative

FlexNets (Flexible Wireless Communications Systems and Networks) is an open-source research initiative that explores new means for leveraging the flexibility in radio communications. It provides a platform for collaborative research efforts on software-defined radio (SDR), cognitive radio, and similar concepts that promote flexibility in wireless communications. The mission of FlexNets is easing the design, development, and deployment of flexible radio communications systems and networks. FlexNets provides software tools for sharing hardware and software resources. It facilitates introducing real-time computing resource management approaches and testing them in different SDR scenarios.

Project Status

This project has evolved to ALOE++ and the Open Source LTE Deployment (OSLD). Please visit our new Web Sites:

* ALOE++ has been designed under the OSLD Project supported by the NLnet Foundation. It dramatically improve the signal processing performance while reducing the framework overhead. ALOE++ is much easier to use and develop, encouraging cooperative development.

  • Check out the ALOE++ specs.


  • ALOE_v1.5 version with OFDM Demo has been relased! Features: improved performance, reduced overhead, USRP support, improved GUI signal visualization, OFDM demo with 2-20 MHz bandwidth allocation
