Welcome to the Communication Technologies group!


The Chair of Communication Technologies aims at the investigation of future communication networks and future applications offered through these networks.

The chair focuses on the following research topics:

  • algorithms and mechanisms to design and operate communication networks 
  • network architectures and protocols for future communication technologies
  • performance evaluation of networked and distributed systems
  • network security
  • wireless and cellular networks


Our vision is that networked systems should become self-* (i.e., self-optimizing, self-repairing, self-configuring). 

Accordingly, we are currently particularly interested in automated and data-driven approaches to design, optimize, and verify networked systems.
