Networks and Cyber Physical Systems Lab

The Networks and Cyber Physical Systems Lab (NECPHY-Lab) conducts advanced research, training, and technology transfer to industry in wireless communications technologies and cyber physical systems (CPS) applications in the domains of smart grids, e-health, and intelligent transportation systems (ITS).

The NECPHY-Lab is an active player in 5G and beyond wireless technologies, smart grid technologies and applications, and service solutions in these fields.

The lab focuses on radio resource management, cognitive and frequency-agile radio, energy-efficient communications, heterogeneous and small cell networks, and wireless sensor technologies, with applications in communication systems, smart grids, smart health, and smart transportation systems.

The NECPHY-Lab has a wide range of signal generation and measurement equipment as well as cognitive radio, wireless sensors, and smart grid test benches used for validation and demonstration of real-world technologies and application development.
