Research

The research focuses on the areas of information and communications theory, communications and networking technology, and communications ecosystem.

The Department of Communications and Networking is well-positioned to address the grand challenges in digitalisation, wireless internet and device usability in a comprehensive way – covering all the OSI layers from physical to applications and making impact to the society. One of the department’s special strengths is linking research with the Finnish and international business sector.

Evolving Internet

The group works on a wide range of topics related to the Internet, from mobile data communication to green ICT and cyber security.

Network Architecture, Protocols, and Services

Our research is on networked systems and protocols with a focus on transport and application layer aspects. In conjunction with this, we work towards understanding user behavior (mobility, network and service interactions) and traffic patterns in the Internet through measurements and modeling and on the impact of network performance on user quality of experience.

Network Economics

The group studies the techno-economic aspects of communication services and networks.

Network Economics

Research methodology and impact

The foundation for strategic research missions following grand research challenges that impact the society.

Mobile Cloud Computing

The mc² – Mobile Cloud Computing group at Aalto University, founded in 2016, conducts experimental systems research on edge computing and services for cognitive manufacturing and autonomous driving. With members from technically diverse backgrounds, the mc² group is active in multi-disciplinary research and industrial collaboration.

Mobile Cloud Computing

Ambient Intelligence

The group studies efficient algorithms that enable intelligent spaces and interaction, including on-body and environmental sensing, usable security, optimization and machine learning methods.

Ambient Intelligence

Studies

The Department of Communications and Networking provides most of the courses of Communications Engineering (CE) major, which is one of the majors under the Master's Programme in Computer, Communication and Information Sciences. CE major gives a solid understanding of Internet technologies, wireless communications and communications ecosystems - from the perspective of concepts, technologies and methodologies.

Smartphone typing speeds catching up with keyboards

A study of over 37,000 users shows that the ‘typing gap’, the difference typing speeds between mobile devices and physical keyboards is decreasing, and 10–19-year olds can type about 10 words-per-minute faster than their parents' generation.
