At RIT, our faculty and students are dedicated to researching multiple aspects of communications and networking technology. Research projects in this area involve the study of such diverse issues as 5G and B5G (beyond 5G) communications, electromagnetics of wireless networks-on-chips, theoretical modeling and measurement of microstrip antennas and integrated microwave circuits, Wearables and Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN), cognitive radios and networks, dynamic spectrum sharing, MIMO wireless communications, and advanced fiber-optics networks.
Moreover, the exchange of information leads to the need to secure the communication links, the networks, and interconnected computing system. As such, our faculty and students also conduct research into Wireless Physical Layer Security (WPLS), modulation obfuscation, cryptographic engineering, connected vehicles (V2V) security, IoT security, and predictive cyber situation awareness. The Applied Cryptography and Information Security (ACIS) Research Laboratory and the Wireless and IoT Security and Privacy (WISP) Laboratory are two of the centers and research laboratories involved with research in this area.
