Communication and Networking Laboratory

George Mason University

Founding Director:
Dr. Bijan Jabbari 


    The Communications and Networking Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering (School of Engineering) is involved in research, education and scholarly activities in the broad area of communication networks and systems, with emphasis on theory, architecture, modeling, performance analysis, mutli-access, mobility, routing and switching, teletraffic and protocols. The current areas of research focus include routing and path computation in optical networks, optimal resource allocation in wireless networks, and high performance computer networks and applications.


  The primary objective of this laboratory is to foster cooperative research programs with academia and research agencies at the national and international level. The goal is to achieve aggregate results and contributions to the field through these interactions which will have significantly more impact than individual efforts.
