The coveted awards by the "Verein der Freunde und Förderer der ComNets-Einrichtungen", who dedicated themselves to the research on future communication networks, were handed over in Aachen on March 13, 2015.

The Bernhard-Walke-Preis for the best Ph.D. thesis in 2014, which includes prize money of 1,500 euros, went to Dr.-Ing. Björn Dusza, who wrote his thesis with the title "Context-Aware Battery Lifetime Modeling for Next Generation Wireless Networks" as part of the DFG SFBs 876 "Datenanalyse unter Ressourcenbeschränkungen". With his research, Dr. Dusza puts the terminal device at the heart of analysis and stochastic modeling of all substantial influences on the power consumption of terminal-sided LTE communication processes. The results of his research enable network operators to measure the influence of network planning and allocation of network resources to individual terminal devices on the battery life systematically and quantitatively, for the first time.

The award for the best final paper in Dortmund was handed over to the Master's graduate Michael Baumeister. The title of his paper, which belongs to the field of the DFG research group "Schutz- und Leittechnik für zukünftige Energiesysteme", is "Leistungsbewertung von drahtlosen Zugangstechnologien zur Realisierung weitverkehrsbasierter Schutzanwendungen im Smart Grid".
