Research in the area of communication networks should develop following areas:

  • Wired communication networks, which are the core of the networks including Internet. The main interest here is to Ethernet technologies, Optical communication, but also routing and switching
  • Wireless technologies going from WiFi through Internet of Things technologies (e.g. LoRa) to mobile networks. The latest submit-ted project is oriented to 5G networks.
  • Architecture for efficient content delivery - Content Delivery networks - CDN and advanced architectures based on Software De-fined Networking - SDN and IP Multimedia Subsystem - IMS. The delivery in efficient manner includes virtualization using Network Function Virtualization - NFV.
The topic along whole research is security, which is omnipresent in ICT. Formal approach used for research includes mainly graph theory and Petri Nets.

Keywords:
Content delivery, Internet of Things, Mobile Networks, Open Networking Foundation, Software Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization, 5G ecosystem
