Research Projects

  • IP Networks Behavior.
  • Blockchain research projects.
  • Investigate current BGP and OSPF routing protocols, as well as new emerging communication protocols.
  • Research future networking technologies such as: SDN, NFV, IoT.
  • Implement new break-through networking performance improvement algorithms.

Industry Collaboration

  • The lab offers joint research and Proof Of Concept (POC) projects with the industry. The projects are tailored to fit the needs and requirements of our industrial partners and performed by our students. Both students and the industry benefit from this exposure.


  • Recognizing that carrying out projects in the laboratory in a heterogeneous group with student members from different sectors may be complex, and in order to encourage such cooperation, we decided to award bonus points in the final grade to heterogeneous groups that demonstrate cooperation and teamwork.
