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 aims to design a novel cloud architecture for wireless networks based on software-defined networking and network function virtualization concepts and essential management tools which allow satisfying the requirements for 5G and beyond.
Our areas of interest include
- Dynamic reconfiguration of the cloudified networks, which allow significantly reducing telecom operator CAPEX and OPEX while providing high quality of experience for the end users.
- 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)
- Centralized algorithms for managing multihop mmWave networks, including fast link setup and beamforming algorithms, routing algorithms, and resources scheduling algorithms.
- Ultra-reliable low latency communications
- Massive Machine-Type Communications
- Visible light and Terahertz Communications

- A Tutorial on IEEE 802.11ax High Efficiency WLANs Is Published in Top-rated IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials (September 22, 2018)
A Tutorial on IEEE 802.11ax High Efficiency WLANs by Evgeny Khorov, Anton Kiryanov, Andrey Lyakhov and Giuseppe Bianchi is published online in the top-rated IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials journal. The tutorial provides a thorough review of a hype future protocol which will soon replace the current flagman Wi-Fi version - 802.11ac. The team members have participated in the standardization process and made several proposals for the new standard. The tutorial discusses and evaluates the main new features of 802.11ax. It raises open issues and formulates optimization problems.
