RLE Research Groups

Communication and Network Group

Set in a heterogeneous network backdrop, our research projects cover a wide range of research fields in communication and networks, spanning from fiber, to wireless, to free space optical systems, into a connected heterogeneous network. Design and analyze future optical flow-switched networks

Investigations:

Fiber Networks
Architecture design and network management and control
Physical layer impairments study
Transport layer protocol design and analysis

Wireless Networks
Directional antenna arrays and electronic beam-forming in infrastructure-less wireless networks

Free Space Optical Systems
Design and analysis of a free space optical system with controllable direction of energy propagation
Optical wireless networking

The group is led by Professor Vincent W.S. Chan, Professor Robert Gallager, and Professor Lizhong Zheng
