The following are the R&D topics that are addressed by the Net4U lab:

  • Data Protection
    Privacy and data protection are fundamental rights protected by the EU law. The terms data protection and data privacy are often used interchangeably, but there is an important difference between the two. Data privacy defines who has access to data, while data protection provides tools and policies to actually restrict access to the data. In ...
  • Edge intelligence
    With the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT), more and more data are created by widespread and geographically distributed mobile and IoT devices. Offloading such huge data from the edge to the cloud is intractable because it can lead to excessive network congestion. Therefore, a more applicable way is to handle user demands at ...
  • Immersive Multimedia
    Progress in technology has led to the development of new forms of media technologies and services in the areas of virtual, augmented and mixed reality (VR/AR/MR). New imaging modalities, such as texture-plus-depth, light field, point cloud, and holographic imaging are the digital signals at the core of these media technologies. Many challenges remain in developing ...
  • Internet of Things
    The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm that is rapidly gaining ground in the scenario of modern wireless telecommunications. The basic idea of this concept is the pervasive presence around us of a variety of things or objects (such as RFID, sensors, actuators, mobile phones, etc.) which, through unique addressing schemes, are able to interact with each other and ...
  • Network Security and Blockchain
    Network security is becoming more and more a key aspect in modern communication networks to provide enhanced services in various contexts, e.g., radio mobile access, smart cities, power distribution, smart industries, etc. The availability of powerful devices potentially allows hackers to perform sophisticated attacks. Moreover, the rapid evolution towards 5G and beyond wireless technologies, in ...
  • Quality of Experience
    A major driving viewpoint in the development of the Next Generation Networks concerns the importance of the user/customer needs in the provisioning of the requested service. Indeed, according to this view is the customer subscription and the customer requested service that dictate the running of the network, that is, upon receiving a customer request for ...
  • Smart Buildings
    The term Smart Building or Intelligent Building refers to a set of technologies that enable different sensors, actuators and smart objects within a building to communicate and interact with one other, so as to control and manage, often remotely, the building itself. The main objective is that of enhancing occupants’ comfort, quality of life, safety and security, while at the same time automating boring/repetitive actions and minimizing the costs (in particular energy-related costs) related to the building management. This encompasses not only residential buildings, but also industrial and tertiary buildings such as hospitals, airports, malls and schools.
  • Smart Mobility
    In this research area we address the problems related to the current limited diffusion of the modality for people sustainable mobility, with particular reference to: urban and extra-urban mass transport services, carsharing, carpooling, and bike sharing. It starts from the observation that this limit is mainly related to the following aspects: poor diffusion and difficult accessibility ...
  • xG Mobile Networks
    Multicast/Broadcast Services in 6G Wireless Point-To-Multipoint (PTM), also referred as multicast/broadcast delivery is considered as a suitable transport mechanism for simultaneously delivering the same content to multiple devices within the covered area with a defined quality of service (QoS). While 5G presents trade-offs on latency, energy, costs, hardware complexity, throughput, and end-to-end reliability addressing the requirements ...
