The Advanced Network Technology Lab (ANTLab) is a research laboratory composed of 4 faculty members and average number of about 15 among PhD students, post-docs, and research associates. Moreover, 15-20 master students per year carry out their final thesis in the lab. The research staff has a solid and recognized expertise on packet networks and in the last decade has focused on different issues of wireless networking, including:
- Wireless local and metropolitan area networks (WiFi, WiMax)
- Wireless MESH networks
- Ad hoc networks
- Cognitive Radio Networks
- Sensor networks
- Cellular systems
Research methodologies are based on mathematical models for the performance evaluations and optimization, ad hoc simulation tools and prototype implementations on networked embedded devices. The lab has strong and active collaborations with many companies and international research centers, and is funded by industry research contracts as well as by public grants related to local, national and European research projects. The quality of the research carried out is testified by a large number of scientific publications in International journals and conference proceedings.
