WELCOME

The Networks Laboratory (NETLAB) has been established under the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Frederick University, Cyprus. The Lab supports the research and teaching needs of the University's Computer Systems and Networks Academic Domain Unit, and it is under the Computer Networks Research Unit (CNetRU). The NETLAB has demonstrated a remarkable work in research and teaching in the field of Computer Networks and Communication Systems.

Research, Innovation & Development

The NETLAB conducts significant research in the areas of wired, mobile/wireless computer networks and communication systems. Specifically, the Laboratory performs research in networking issues, such as architectures, protocols, algorithms, and mechanisms that support the provision of Quality of Service/Experience and security. The principal aim of the research is the performance enhancement of both wired and wireless/mobile networks and communication systems. Emphasis is given in the development of efficient, secure, and effective networking protocols and intelligent control algorithms using computational intelligence techniques, like fuzzy logic control and evolutionary computation (e.g., in sensor and vehicular networks). Multi-objective optimization techniques is also of prime concern. Further, the NETLAB focuses on trust models, dynamic key management, and risk management. The Laboratory also works on developing secure mobile applications for citizen safety and security.

NETLAB research is supported by the utilization of CISCO equipment and software tools for the development of appropriate simulation models and of pilot systems and applications. In addition, the NETLAB utilizes prototyping and proof-of-concept implementations.

Teaching

The NETLAB supports undergraduate and postgraduate courses by providing students the vital hardware and software means (equipment and technologies). Specifically, the NETLAB supports the courses for the B.Sc. in Computer Science and B.Sc. in Computer Engineering, M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering - Computer Engineering Specialization, M.Sc. in Web and Mobile Systems, Ph.D. in Computer Engineering and Ph.D. in Computer Science.

Through the taught courses, the NETLAB develops the skills and simulation/hands-on practical experience needed to design, construct, operate, and organize networks/systems in small-to-medium businesses, as well as enterprise environments. The NETLAB promotes and facilitates students to acquire international certifications by attending innovative programs that provide knowledge and skills in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). In particular, the NETLAB serves students to acquire CISCO certifications (CCNA Routing and Switching, CCNA Security, CCNP, IT Essentials), by supporting the Frederick CISCO Networking Academy; more, the Laboratory supports students’ skills attending in IP Erasmus European projects, like “Secure Web Applications” (2012-2014), and “Security in ICT” (2007-2009).
