Networking and Computing Facility
The Networking Systems Laboratory investigates all aspects of information processing and transport. Faculty and graduate students in NSL work on high-capacity networks, optical systems, agile and software defined radios, innovative transmitter and receiver design, and reliable and robust mobile networks. The laboratory integrates leading edge research with practical implementation and applications. The focus of NSL is to efficiently deliver reliable communications services across a wide range of challenging mediums to user applications. Recent projects involve radio design, Bluetooth and RFID evaluation, optical sensors for biology, and radio spectrum measurement and management.
The Computer Systems Design Laboratory (CSDL) focuses on the design, implementation and verification of systems whose primary components include computers. CSDL research addresses the design of computing systems ranging from small embedded elements to large distributed computing environments covering all aspects of the system lifecycle from requirements analysis through testing and validation.
