Connectivity @ UNH

Connectivity is a multi-disciplinary research center focused on network engineering, cyber security, and collateral technology areas. The focus of our work is to investigate next generation communication systems to enable a more connected world. The networking research is also an enabling technology for other groups at the University of New Hampshire. This Center is unique due to it’s partnerships with industry, academia, and federal agencies.

The main focus of this Center is network engineering. We have expertise from wired to wireless networks and energy efficient to high bandwidth/performance systems. The faculty and staff affiliated with the Center have many years of experience in all layers of the networking protocol. Because the Center is also uniquely linked with different standards bodies, our work can impact real life current and future networking challenges.

Current Research Thrust

Advances in the integration of network information systems, sensing devices, data analytics, and artificial intelligence are transforming society, allowing cities and communities to address challenges with insight that has not previously been available. This approach also known as the Internet of Things enables increased understanding of how to intelligently and effectively address traditional community problems. There are great challenges to networking engineering with the increasing orders of magnitude of connected devices. Our goal is to research new technologies that can meet those challenges.

Work with Connectivity

Research at UNH-CRC is conducted in a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary environment. Many of the technologies and applications conceived are tested and refined through use cases deployed throughout the UNH campus and the town of Durham in cooperation with individual member companies. The faculty and staff have years of experience and proven track records of expertise in the realm of data communications
