Areas of research

Our research addresses all levels of communication systems as well as the key challenges in the development of a 5G, 5G+ and 6G infrastructure capable of providing connectivity for future technologies.

A fundamental aim is to use context – about users, services, networks and devices – to enable advanced communications capabilities that will provide an unparalleled user experience.
