The HoWNet (Holistic Wireless Networks) team studies various aspects of computer networks with a special interest in wireless networks, their modeling, and the evaluation of their performance. We have also interests in wired networks including next-generation networks (e.g., SDN and NFV) and their efficiency at providing a stringent level of QoS. The team belongs to the LIP Laboratory.
In particular, we investigate heterogeneous wireless networks where multiple technologies cooperate to find efficient trade-offs between performance and energy consumption.
Technologies of interest include (but are not limited to) short-range, cellular, and LPWAN technologies.
Topics of interest
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Performance Evaluation
- Analytical Modeling
- AI models for wireless networks
- QoS provisioning and Resource management
- Measurements tools, Testbeds and Experiments
- Distributed Algorithms and Protocols
- Software Defined Network
- Ad hoc, MESH, and Vehicular Networks
- Internet of Things
- Energy efficient networks
Our scientific foundations lie in performance evaluation be it using analytical models, simulators, or experiments, or the three combined.
