Welcome to Computer Networking Laboratory


The Computer Networking Laboratory (CNL), located in SEM 211, was founded in 2006 in the Computer Science and Engineering Department of UNR. The research efforts in our laboratory are on various topics in computer communication networks encompassing both experimental and theoretical aspects. Our recent projects networking research problems that we study include:

  • Cognitive radio
  • Communication privacy
  • Complex networks
  • Delay tolerant networks
  • Dynamic spectrum access
  • Free-space-optics
  • Network economics
  • Network management
  • Network measurements
  • Network optimization
  • Network security
  • Peer-to-peer communication
  • Social Networks

Our research in CNL has been funded both by government agencies and by the industry, including the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), AT&T, Navy, and DARPA. CNL collaborators have included Rochester Institute of Technology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Florida Internation University, University of Miami, University of Central Florida. Most of our collaborations are inter-disciplinary spanning significantly different disciplines such as behavioral science, math, journalism, and physics.
