The Wireless Networking Group (WiNG) at the School of Electrical and Information Engineering, University of Sydney pursues breakthrough research and development for mobile communications networks and cooperative wireless heterogeneous systems. We work on the architecture design and wireless communications techniques for a true Internet-of-Things future. We also work on securing the mobile network and bringing the infrastructure-based networks and the infrastructure-less networks into a mutual agreement under cooperative communications. Our research applies to both mobile terrestrial and satellite communications.
