Advanced Networks

Advanced networks is concerned with all related research into telecommunications and computer networks. The group has a strong history of collaborative research with industry and has very close links with a number of major international companies. This group is led by Professor Alan Marshall.

Current projects include:

  • Novel network architectures for Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Programmable networks
  • Network management and network processing
  • Adaptive packet scheduling
  • Denial-of-service attack behaviour recognition in wireless networks
  • Programmable routing protocols for ad-hoc and sensor networks.

The group's laboratory serves as the main focus for research into all aspects of computer and telecommunications networks related research. The laboratory contains state-of-the-art facilities to allow research into fixed and wireless networks, network management systems; and distributed video/audio and video conferencing systems. This allows research into heterogeneous networks, and future fast packet switching technologies.


Academic staff members of this group are:
