Welcome to the Web page of the NMS (Network, Mobility and Services) research group. The NMS group is part of the department of Networking and Computer Science and LTCI (Laboratoire Traitement et Communication de l’Information) at Télécom ParisTech.
The research activities carried out within the NMS group cover a large set of topics in the general area of networking, ranging from low layers (access, resource allocation, energy harvesting, radio handover, radio mobility management, data transmission reliability, infrastructure resilience) and higher layers (routing, ICN, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networks (SDN), blockchain, IP mobility, network metrology). These activities address both theoretical (modelling, performance evaluation, architecture, and protocols) and practicals (test-beds, experiments) issues.
The NMS group has a strong expertise in protocol and architecture design. Indeed, NMS is involved in standardization activities (IETF, 3GPP) as well as in the design of major research platforms (LISP, FIT, SILECS, …) for the networking community.
The NMS group has several cooperation with international laboratories (Europe, China, India, MENA region). Research activities are also undertaken in the context of national (ANR, FUI, …) and international research projects (European projects), in tight cooperation with major industrial actors of the field. Moreover, NMS has joint research laboratories namely, NewNet@Paris, SEIDO Lab, and LINCS.
Regarding education, the NMS group is involved in several tracks (mobile network and IoT; core network, data centers, and cloud) at Telecom ParisTech. Furthermore, the group is jointly involved with Ecole Polytechnique in the ACN (Advanced Communication Networks) Master program.
