Current research activities of the RSTI group are built over three main pillars:

  • Internet of Things: Sensor networks. Rapid prototyping with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc. IoT communications (WiFi, ZigBee, BLE, NFC, LTE, M2M, …). Protocols (MQTT, CoAP). Application to Smart Cities, Retail, Mobility & Transport, Public Safety, …,Data Analytics and Visualization. Remote configuration and management. Web based dashboards.
  • Advanced Wireless Communications Technologies (5G/6G). Core Network deployments. Evaluation of Network Elements performance. Data and Signalling Traffic Generator. Programable Data Planes, DPDK, P4, Protocol Independent Switching Architecture (PISA). Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC).
  • Cybersecurity: Dynamic risk management. Cybersecurity Awareness. Application of Artificial Intelligence to Cybersecurity (Machine Learning and Ontologies-based Expert Systems)- Detection and response to intrusions. Simulation and training. Visualization and tracing of cyberattacks. Protection of critical infrastructures.
The specific areas of expertise of the RSTI group also include:
