Communication Networks Research Center (CNRC)

CNRC (Communication Networks Research Center)is a research group at Department of Computer Science COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT) Lahore campus, Pakistan . CNRC is involved in research on a broad range of topics in networks such as network protocols, Simulations and Modeling, Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning, Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETS), Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), Biomedical Wireless Sensor Networks, Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks, WiMax and other allied areas of networks.   

MANETs is a prominent research area at CNRC. During last three years, MS (CS) students and faculty members have addressed various research issues in MANETS such as Routing Protocols, Quality of Service (QoS), Intrusion Detection, Node Mobility, Security and Density calculation.

WSN, due to its civilian and military applications is another very popular research area at CNRC. Currently, the focus of research is on Biomedical Wireless Sensor Network (BWSN) and Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSN).  BWSN emerged from the integration of biomedical sensors with wireless networks and have great potential applications in medical scenarios. Research is going on to develop novel schemes to provide intelligent priority assignment mechanisms to time critical medical emergency data. WMSN is a new research area and the focus of our research is to provide low latency to multimedia contents over WSN and to optimize routing protocols dynamically.
