The line of computer networks was established in 1987 and now conducts research in modeling and analysis of networks, multimedia networks, multimedia applications, network security, wireless networks and traffic engineering. It has two thematic laboratories where students can become familiar with the state of the art network technology.


Major Research Themes

Modeling and Analysis of Computer Systems and Communication
  • Development of new models of solution algorithms
  • Develop tools for performance evaluation and system reliability
  • Development of mechanisms models found in multimedia networks
  • system models Simulation
  • Templates for protocols with guarantees of differentiated quality of service
Multimedia Applications

The purpose of this area is to develop new algorithms for multimedia applications and implement multimedia tools.
Some of the multimedia applications that are under development are: application for voice and video over the Internet, application for collaborative work using transmission multicast , a video server on demand.
