Welcome to High Speed Communication Networks Laboratory.

High Speed Communication Networks Laboratory (HSCNL) of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, is developing solutions to some of the most challenging problems in networking, optical communications, data centers and cloud computing, and smart grids. The group has strong cooperation with other research centers, universities, industrial partners and important scientists worldwide. HSCNL is headed by Professor Emmanouel (Manos) Varvarigos, and has 5 Post-Doctoral researchers and over 10 students pursuing their PhD.

HSCNL’s research activities are in the areas of protocols and algorithms for high-speed networks, optical networking, high-performance switch architectures, data center architectures and technologies, grid and cloud computing, communication aspects of distributed computation, interconnection networks, smart energy grids, and wireless ad-hoc networks.

HSCNL’s members participate in over 25 European projects in the areas of optical networking (Horizon2020 Orchestra as a coordinator, FP7 Idealist, FP7 Diconet, FP6 IP Phosphorus, FP7 NOE Bone, FP6 NOE e-Photon, IST-MUFINS), data centers (Horizon2020 Nephele, FP7 Phoxtrot), grid/cloud computing (FP7 Orbit, EGEE-I, EGEE-II, EGEE-III, EGI-InSPIRE, EMI) and smart energy grids (Horizon2020 FLEXGRID as a coordinator, Horizon2020 SOCIALENERGY as a coordinator, FP7 Vimsen as a coordinator, FP7 GEN6). They have also participated in over 20 National research projects, often serving as the coordinator.
