Network Research Group
Our research covers many different aspects of telecommunications networking. We have projects on Active Networks, Enhancing TCP Performance on both Wireline and Mobile Wireless Networks, Fast Mobility and Admission Control Mechanisms in Multimedia Cellular IP Networks, IPv4-to-IPv6 Transition Mechanisms, Control-Theoretic Approaches to Self-Similar Traffic Management, Ad Hoc Wireless Networks, Differentiated Services IP Networks and Quality of Service Routing.
- 15 June 2010: Mofassir Ul Haque, a CSSE PhD student from our Network and Simulation Research Group, has been awarded a conference scholarship by PlanetLab NZ, for participating in the 10th Wuerzburg Workshop on "Visions of Future Generation Networks" (EuroView2010), to be held in Wuerzburg, Germany, on August 2-3, 2010. Mofassir, who is working on his PhD research proposal in the area of Future Internet, will also visit the research group of Prof. Phuoc Tran-Gia in the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Wuerzburg, which is well known for their research on Future Internet Applications & Overlays, as a part of the European Network of Excellence Euro-NF.
