Communication Networks Working Group



The main research focus of the ComNets group at the University of Bremen is performance analysis of communication networks and their protocols. This includes the implementation of prototypes as well as performance studies by mathematical analysis and simulation. The main keywords are: mobility support, mobile communications, wireless communications, simulation technology, rare event simulation, teletraffic engineering. Research projects are mainly funded by national and international government institutions and direct industry collaborations.


The group consists of several post-docs as well as several fully employed research assistants working on research projects and their doctoral thesis. Additionally there is a small technical and assisting team and many students working as student workers or doing their thesis.


Free-WLAN-Spots for refugees installed

This week, two "Freifunk"-WLAN spots were installed at the NW1 and the refugee tent behind. The bandwith supports about 30 people on low-demand services like E-Mail, Whatsapp etc. Find more information on Freifunk and their free WiFi spots on their website.
