The High Performance Networks Group (HPNG) at the University of Essex specializes in the application of advanced technologies to future communication network infrastructures together with the study of control, node architectures, and technologies best suited for future requirements. The group consists of the following labs and experimental facilities:
- Photonic Networks Lab
- Networked Media Lab
- Future Internet Experimental Facility
HPNG is committed to a high standard by extensively publishing in selected highly-ranked journals and conferences and contributing to standardisation activities. The Group has a very strong collaborative profile and interacts with researchers and users in the UK, EU, US, Japan and China; many of these links were established due to the support offered by EPSRC platform grants.
