Welcome to IBA Telecommunications Research Lab

The Telecommunications Research Lab at the IBA FCS focuses on research being conducted by the Ph.D students and faculty members in the areas of Wireless Sensor Networks and Mobile Networks with special emphasis on performance analysis, simulation and applications of machine learning to the areas of wireless sensor networks and IoT. The TRL has invested in several Wireless Sensor Network lab equipment and also has expertise in state of the art simulation softwares including NS2, NS3, Avrora and QualNet. Faculty and students at the TRL frequently contribute to International conferences and Journals and are active participants in International workshops and trainings. Dr. S.M. Faisal Iradat and most recently Dr. Shama Siddiqui have so far completed their PhDs from the TRL.
