This group is actively involved and has interests in the areas of high performance and wireless networking and mobile communications. In particular, our research and development activities involve resource control and traffic engineering in wired and wireless networks, performance evaluation of networks with guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS), traffic measurement and analysis, voice processing, synthesis and compression, mobile positioning, and contact-less smartcards. The Lab also maintains a number of testbeds involving fixed and wireless (based on IEEE 802.11) technologies for experimenting with new network technologies and protocols, and for performing measurement and analysis experiments of real network traffic. In this group we are also interested in experimentally studying such planet-wide distributed systems in order to understand the forces that drive their day-to-day operation, as well as the dimensions that sustain their long-term evolution. In simple terms, we are interested in learning what kind of traffic is that which flows through the "veins" of such systems? What holds these systems together? How do they respond to various types of attacks? Under what circumstances would they collapse? How can we make them more robust? How can we trust them? How can we be safe in them? In order to answer these and similar questions, we conduct experimental state-of-the-art research which focuses on studying, analyzing, and improving large scale distributed systems.
