Communication networks, in particular mobile communication and the Internet, have revolutionized our daily life and business. New ways of exchanging data through different types of networks are continuously evolving.
Our research will concentrate on three vertical areas: New Network Architectures (Designing the future global network), Self-organizing Systems (Engineering the Foundations of Autonomous Networks), and Middleware and New Services (Scalable Bridging in todays Networks). These activities are complemented by the horizontal area New Methods and Tools for Performance Evaluation. Moreover, real-world applications (e.g., from mobile commerce or transport telematics) will be deployed to verify the research work.
