The Communication Systems & Networks Group was formed in 1985. It performs fundamental academic research with strong levels of industrial application. The Group has well-equipped laboratories with state-of-the-art test & measurement equipment as well as first-class computational facilities.
Our world leading research addresses topics such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Massive MIMO, Intelligent Transport Systems, dynamic mmWave networks, full duplex communications, wearable wireless technologies and wireless/optical network integration. Many of these subjects are critical in the development of efficient and cost-effective 5G networks.
Researchers of the CSN Research Group are members of the Smart Internet Lab. This recent initiative builds on Bristol's strategic research in communications and digital technologies to create a hub for Internet Research with long lasting benefits for society and the economy.
