Coordinator TUB - TKN

Technische Universität Berlin is one of the largest German Universities of Technology. It is, however, also a research university, with telecommunications being one of the key areas of its competence. The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science creates – in cooperation with a group of affiliated research institutes and the on-campus industrial research (e.g. the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories; Fraunhofer Institutes, Leibniz Institutes) – a unique ecosystem in telecommunication, oriented on basic and applied research. The Telecommunication Networks Group (www.tkn.tu-berlin.de) participating in this project conducts since 1993 research in architectures and protocols of communication networks. With around 30 researchers and PhD students and ca. 1.5 M€ of external funding per annum, it belongs to the strongest research groups of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The methodology of research is based on a mixture of analytical/simulative investigations on one side and the experimental research on the other side. To this point the group has well equipped laboratories, including the TWIST testbed, environments for prototyping of WLAN systems (down to MAC modifications), has access to an emerging open mesh network testbed and is participant of the world largest Internet testbed $mdash; PlanetLab. In further is part of the CREW testbed federation. Please finde here the Publications.
Role in the project: TUB will act as project coordinator, WP1 leader, and is mainly involved in WP2 and WP3
Experience: TKN is working since 2003 on cognitive radio based secondary usage of radio resources following different architectural paradigms (Corvus, 802.22 frequency hopping modus, secondary usage of CDMA based cellular systems). The research results are widely cited and appreciated, including the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Symposium on Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN) on the technical track. It further has a proven track record of wireless sensor network experimentation, maintaining one of the largest indoor wireless sensor network testbeds (TWIST).
Adam Wolisz: is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Technische Universität Berlin and the founder and head of the Telecommunication Networks Group (TKN). Since its creation in 2001 he is also executive director of the Institute of Telecommunication Systems. His research interests are in architectures and protocols of communication networks as well as in protocol engineering with impact on performance and QoS aspects. Since 2005 he is in parallel adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at the EE&CS Department of the University of California, Berkeley. Prof. Wolisz is author of about 250 papers in technical journals and conference proceedings, and is a Senior Member of IEEE.
Vlado Handziski is a senior researcher at TKN. He received his doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering from TUB (2011) and his M.Sc. degree from Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia (2002). Dr. Handziski has conducted research on architectural aspects of networked embedded systems and has participated in several EU projects centered on wireless sensor networks like EYES, WiSeNts and CONET. He is principle designer of the hardware abstraction layer of TinyOS and of the TWIST testing architecture. He is member of the ACM.
