Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems
Our researches aim at designing protocols and architectures for next generation networks. This means considering current constraints related to such networks: quality of service (QoS) and security in heterogeneous networks, especially including wireless and mobile networks. In such context, the goal of our researches deals with designing new adaptability mechanisms to dynamic environments, and which completely hides the different network technologies encountered on the communication paths. The network would be ubiquitous and seamless. The ultimate goal is to make the network autonomic.
Methods for reaching this goal rely on the development of new architectures, model oriented design, validation and performance evaluation techniques. For this purpose, talents rely on the use of simulation, emulation as well as network monitoring and measurement techniques and tools. In addition, a big effort is provided for creating experimentation platforms for testing our proposals.
A large effort is made for the development of platforms of experimentation (in particular Laasnetexp and GdX ). These platforms enable us to implement, and, thanks to experimentations, to validate and evaluate the suggested solutions.
