A team at Simon Fraser University (SFU) is focusing its resources to make LTE/4G and Wi-Fi communication systems possible on the moon by 2022. The researchers are well equipped to take on this project, for SFU is renowned for its PolyLAB for Advanced Collaborative Networking. In collaboration with researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder, they operate the "Canadian component of the Exploration Wireless Communications (ExWC) testbed out of Vancouver's Harbour Centre."
The critical testing phase was entrusted to Simon Fraser University research by NASA and the Canadian Space Agency. SFU has been working on "building networks on the moon, Mars, and even further out in our solar system" and right now, they are testing Nokia's technology.
