The Telecommunications Group within the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications conducts leading research in four areas: wireless communications, data network, signal processing and photonics.
We recognise the importance of efficient spectrum utilisation in physical wireless communications, the need to manage cybersecurity, quality of service and mobility issues in data networking. Another area of interest is to compress, communicate and appropriate interpret multimedia content to address traffic issues.
Within the telecommunications space, there is growing recognition of the importance of distributed systems which can simultaneously exploit redundancy and diversity. To address this trend, distributed coding techniques have emerged separately in the fields of source coding, channel coding and network coding. Our mission is to innovate solutions and systems to utilise redundancy and diversity in distributed environments to advance distributed multimedia communications.
Our researchers contribute towards CSIRO Data61-Australia's leading digital research network.
