The Networked Wireless Systems (NeWS) laboratory in the dept. of CSE at IIT Hyderabad engages in a wide range of experiemental and theoretical research in Wireless networks, Next-generation Internet, Pervasive Computing, Network Security and ICT for societal development. The proliferation and penetration of smart phones and IoT devices is having very profound impact on world economy. In order to support billions of wirelessly connected devices, and tackle exponentially increasing traffic demands and ever-increasing QoE and energy efficiency requirements of diverse services and applications being carried over communication network infrastructure, a heterogeneous converged network (HCN) architecture integrating heterogeneous radio access technologies including various generations of cellular (e.g., 4G/5G), Wi-Fi (e.g., IEEE 802.11n/ac), Bluetooth and ZigBee, and wireless core network technologies is required. We expect that HCN contains ultra-dense deployment of network elements (e.g., base stations and access points) to boost network coverage and capacity. NeWS lab is carrying out R&D work on various research issues like novel (cloud) convergence architectures, seamless mobility, load-balancing, interference management, co-existence protocols, security, and optimal resource allocation to realize energy-efficient and spectrally-efficient HCNs. It is promising to design and develop HCNs on open-hardware platforms by exploiting recent advances in network functions virtualization (NFV), virtualization techniques of cloud computing and software-define networking (SDN) which direct flexible, dynamically configurable network elements to provide on-demand customized services to traffic demands which may be dynamic in time and space. We build testbeds and do prototyping to assess benefits of technology pilots in a real-world setting. Refer Reseach section to know more about on-going projects.
