Advanced Communication Lab

Introduction

The Advanced Communication System Laboratory covers design and verification of the concepts of modern communication systems that operates in MHz-THz range. The main focus of the Advanced Communication System (ACS) Laboratory is to design next-generation wireless technologies and mobile computing systems. In particular, ACS Laboratory conducts research in the broad area of communication theory, wireless communications and networks, with focus on the physical layer and optical communication systems – Optical fiber based and integrated photonic waveguides based. 


Wireless Communication

Research into various types of wireless communication networks can be conducted in this lab: Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications, cellular networks, relaying, cognitive radio, heterogeneous networks, 5G wireless communications. Topics of particular interest are:

  • Signal processing for Wireless communication systems
  • Cognitive radio/dynamic resource allocation
  • Cooperative networks/Relaying
  • Full-duplex radio/Hardware-based modelling and signal processing techniques
  • Software radio/USRP experimental implementation

Photonics & Optical Communication
