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)
. 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.
