Communications and Information Systems Group
The Future Internet will need to support a much wider range of applications with even greater demands on performance and capacity. It will therefore need to be substantially different from the Internet of today. Here, in the Networks and Services Research Laboratory, we are designing the main components of the Internet of 2020. We are one of the largest data networking research labs in the UK and we are always looking for enthusiastic researchers and collaborators.
The major themes of our research include:
- Network architecture: novel routing paradigms, network optimisation, quality of service and resilience, traffic engineering and congestion control.
- Network management and service engineering: policy based systems, autonomic networking and network virtualisation.
- P2P and overlay networking: swarming algorithms for live and interactive content, incentives for cooperation, cross layer optimisation of ISP's networks and overlays.
- Network Monitoring and Measurement: Measurement and characterisation of topology and traffic in data networks, active end-to-end Internet monitoring, network observability.
