The Research Areas
Analytics, Algorithms, and Augmented Intelligence
Develop disruptive, breakthrough solutions to critically hard industry problems via network protocols, algorithms addressing networks and other complex systems, network control systems, and useful and real-time analytics.
Through close collaboration with research and state-of-the-art prototyping capabilities, drive major research proofs-of-concept toward solutions that address hard and transformative issues facing our industry.
End-to-End Networks and Service Automation
Transform the way mobile networks are used through creation of future-proof, adaptive and massively scalable end to end solutions.
Applications, Platforms & Software Systems
By mastering the fundamentals of software methodologies, design, and system implementation we create technologies that save people time. We believe in theory and running code.
Access & Devices
Develop breakthrough technologies for the communications systems that directly connect with end users. We address wireless in 5G radios, transceiver design, massive MIMO, and communications theory to bring faster fiber and fiber-like speeds over copper to enable seemingly infinite capacity and edge clouds for low latency computing.
Smart Optical Fabric & Devices
Significantly improve the scale, flexibility, and agility of IP and optical networks. Focus on new ways of improving optical speed in the spatial, statistical, and optical domains; new error and signal processing techniques, and more flexible control.
Through end-to-end mobile network research, transform how mobile networks are used, through creation of future-proof, adaptive and massively scalable E2E solutions. Develop new architectures that exploit 5G and beyond.
