HoWNet team

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.

Cooperative wireless networks.

Technologies of interest include (but are not limited to) short-range, cellular, and LPWAN technologies.

Existing wireless technologies.

Topics of interest

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Performance Evaluation
  • Analytical Modeling
