Research in the Centre for Telecommunications Research
The Centre for Telecommunications Research (CTR) was established in the early 1990s. The Centre initially focused on lower layer aspects of mobile/wireless communications systems, right down to microwave circuit design. Since the end of the 1990s, much work in the area of protocol creation and analysis has been successfully pursued at the Centre, establishing its strengths at a range of layers of the OSI reference model. The accumulation of comprehensive knowledge therefore puts the CTR in a strong position to contribute to all aspects of the creation of the universal communications systems of the future.
Research within the Centre for Telecommunications Research is concentrated in the following areas:
