Cooperative Networking across the Layers

Funding Agency 

National Science Foundation: CIF Medium Collaborative Research

Description 

Professor Tony Ephremides is the principal investigator (PI) on an NSF grant, "Cooperative Networking Across the Layers." The three-year, $371,166 grant is part of a larger collaborative project. The research will go beyond the physical layer in defining and analyzing cooperative techniques for wireless networks. By incorporating higher layer properties such as traffic dynamics and access control Ephremides and his fellow researchers will develop a new theoretical framework for analyzing and designing cooperative networking algorithms across the layers.
