High Performance Networks: Modeling, Simulation & Analysis

Ljiljana Trajkovic

Abstract

The proposed research program deals with simulation and analysis of traffic, protocols, and control algorithms in high-performance packet networks.The research problems are interdisciplinary and require expertise in packet data networks (engineering and technology), statistical tools and analysis (applied mathematics), and data mining and visualization of large data sets (computing science).Current Projects1. Analysis of traffic traces and billing records from deployed wireless networks (E-Comm and Telus Mobility);2. Use of analytical tools for traffic characterization and estimation of network performance;3. Analysis and simulation of network protocols with active queue management schemes;4. Application of control theory to modeling and analysis of network dynamics.
