Welcome to the Networks & Communications Laboratories web page, of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, at the University of California, Riverside. The goal of these labs is to investigate issues in wireline and wireless networks, mobile computing and multimedia, and to find solutions to the technical problems in these areas. The future integration of these two technologies will also require solutions to the specific problems that arise with these combined.

Currently we are looking at wireless and mobility problems such as routing protocols and algorithms, resource and service location protocols, mechanisms to improve throughput over wireless links, and mechanisms to provide seamless mobility between different interfaces in heterogenous networks. We also deal with network topology problems, network monitoring and management, BGP policies-routing, and peer-to-peer networking.

On multimedia networks, we are concerned with QoS routing, video  encoding and compression, resource allocation, traffic characterization and shaping, and multimedia scheduling. We are also working on designing a new class of operating systems, especially suitable for multimedia applications.

Our lab cooperates with many companies and other research labs around the world, such as Intel-Research, Telcordia, Cisco, BBN, Microsoft-Research, CMU, LANL, etc.
