The Wireless Communication Networks (WCN) section focuses on teaching, research and innovation within the domain of wireless and wired communication and network technologies. The research field spans from the lowest to the highest layers in the OSI model, and from application-inspired basic research to more application-oriented where communication networks play a major role.
The research objective of the section is to conduct scientific investigations targeted at the development of novel efficient algorithms and methods in wired and wireless communications. The methodology includes the definition and study of mathematical frameworks and concepts, computer simulation of wired and wireless networks, and experimental investigation.
An important focus area is the development of future 5G wireless technologies, however, many activities in the section focus on the application of wired and wireless communication in the context of Smart Grid, Smart City, Intelligent Transport Systems and Mobile Network Evolution.
