Our expertise is in the modelling, measurement and management of telecommunications networks.
Modelling concerns understanding how the components of a system interact and being able to make predictions about the behaviour of the system in different operating environments.
Measurement concerns being able to collect data to monitor the current operational performance of a system, and hence use that data as part of model verification and enhancement.
Management concerns the control of a network, on either short or long time scales and either automatically or manually, and making use of data interpretation and modelling to predict how network behaviour will change as a result of given management action.
Our outputs are delivered in many forms, as determined by partner needs, and range from delivery of complex software systems through to technical reports through to educational courses and seminars.
