Research area Networks

The research area focuses on technology, mechanisms and architectures for cost efficient provision of services with differentiated quality of service (QoS) requirements over heterogeneous, partly autonomic and dynamic communication networks. An important foundation for the research is the modeling and quantitative evaluation of such networks. The QoS aspects considered are related to traffic handling and dependability. There are strong collaborations with the Information security research area at ITEM to ensure that the security aspects of QoS are covered, and with the Networked systems research area to link network-layer QoS to end user quality of experience (QoE).
