About

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
