Full Stack Networking Group

Our cozy, little group takes care of everything networking-related. We are not ashamed to get our hands dirty to tinker and solder some RF and IoT equipment together. Neither do we shy away from testing and toying with shapers and schedulers, transport protocols or applications and their protocols.

In the end, all of these layers interact with each other. Your transport protocol will influence the application behavior. And the transport protocol will in turn have to operate with the conditions set by the physical channel and the link layer. This simply means that in order to understand a system we have to understand each and every layer of it.

That is what we are trying to achieve. And there are few more demanding demo applications than video games. The properties (and interactions with lower layers) of multiplayer online video games and cloud gaming are one of our leitmotifs in our research.

Current Projects

KOSINU5 - Konvergierte deterministische Industrienetze in heterogenen Umgebungen mit Campus-5G
(October 2021 - September 2024)

The aim of this project is to develop robust, scalable industrial networks for intelligent factories and to evaluate their performance. Real-time requirements are placed on the industrial network and guarantees are required for the communication networks of the factory of the future.
