Wireless Networks Lab (WNL) is a ‘Megagrant’ lab established in 2017 around the project on Cloudified Wireless Networks for 5G and beyond, led by Prof. Ian F. Akyildiz. The project focused at cloud architectures for wireless networks based on software-defined networking and network function virtualization concepts and essential management tools to satisfy the requirements for 5G and beyond.

Currently, WNL works on multiple projects related to the hot topics in wireless networks.

Our areas of interest include:

  • 5G and 6G Design and Optimization
  • Future Wireless Local Area Networks (Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 7, Li-Fi and beyond)
  • Traffic classification in wireless networks.
  • Resource allocation for heterogeneous traffic in multi-RRH environment
  • Cooperation and coexistence for the technologies working in licensed and unlicensed spectrum (including LTE-U, LAA, Wi-Fi coexistence)
  • Ultra-reliable low latency communications
  • Massive Machine-Type Communications
  • Visible light and Terahertz Communications and Intelligent Surfaces
  • Non-orthogonal multiple access

WNL participates in IEEE 802.11 activities, organizes international events, and holds Moscow Telecommunication Seminar.
