Emerging Network Technologies
The Emerging Network Technologies (ENT) group conducts research in the areas of Information Centric Networking, Cloud Computing , Smart Grid Communications, Wireless sensor networks, and Localization with the goal of developing and applying measurement science techniques for their performance evaluation. Some of these techniques include Network Sampling and Measurement, Congestion Control Algorithms, Learning of Network Topology, Modeling and Estimation of Network Dynamics, and Network Robustness and Vulnerability, and validates some of its research ideas by developing prototypes on the newlybuilt 100G Platform for Network Innovation (PNI).
Today’s networks are very complex and run a large set of network protocols where implementation bugs can be very costly when gone undetected. ENT is also looking at formal methods and ways to exploit runtime network verification techniques.
