The ATNoG (Advanced Telecommunications and Networks Group) is a research group founded in January 2011. ATNoG is the result of the merger of several research lines inside Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT), including the research work previously centered around HNG (Heterogeneous Networking Group), with a broader scope and increased cooperation with industry. The broad interests of ATNoG are centered on the problems of network infrastructure and operation associated to a visionary idea of a fully mobile, fully connected society, where information will be on the tips of the hands of the users.

ATNoG is cooperating with industries in Portugal and Europe (Portugal Telecom is a preferred partner, ABBAN, Alcatel Lucent Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom, amongst others) and with universities and research institutes worldwide (e.g. Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Carnegie Mellon University)

Smolt Smolt was initially supposed to be a reporting tool for users to track hardware items that do or don't work. It was to span multiple distributions and have automated reporting features for users to report things like sound cards not working, suspend issues, etc. Around the same time Smolt was created a similar project LHCP was created. Having a similar but larger scope it was decided that smolt should focus its efforts which is what it is today.

Smolt is, very simply, a hardware reporting tool for Linux based systems. It was originally written for Fedora and now also supports SuSE, Debian and Ubuntu. It gathers information from users, and stores them in a queryable database with a web frontend that produces statistics.
