This theme groups all of the research topics concerning communication networks at the DMIA/MARS department. The identified goals are:

  • to study enabling mechanisms in the design of communication architectures that can dynamically adapt to variations of application-level needs for quality of service, versatility of the network-offered quality of service and diversity of new-generation communication systems,
  • to develop a transport-level architecture tailored for satellite communications in a multipoint and mobile context. Studies focus on cross-layer reliability mechanisms, exploitation of error correction codes and encapsulation of IP in DVB-S2,
  • to study geo-localization of mobile hosts in indoor and urban environments based on collaborative tools.
