Communication Systems

We focus on the design, analysis and optimisation of future communication systems.

Our research includes the design, analysis and optimisation of future communication systems and networks.

Recent work concentrates on:

  • 5G Mobile Wireless Communication Systems
  • Green Communications
  • Cognitive Radio Networks
  • Intelligent Wireless Communication Techniques
  • Heterogeneous Networks
  • Small Cells
  • Massive MIMO
  • Advanced Network Coding
  • Cross-layer Design
  • Machine Learning, AI and Big Data Analytics for Communication Networks
  • Millimetre Wave Communications

Our Wireless Broadband Laboratory has £1m of wireless network development and testing equipment. This was kindly donated by Cobham plc. We also have state-of-the-art software defined radio development facilities. These facilities provide a unique testbed for leading research in:

  • Future Wireless Communications
  • Intelligent and Cognitive Radio technologies
  • Internet of Things research
