Prof. Dr. Holger Karl has left the University of Paderborn and is now working at the University of Potsdam. The members of the working group are active here at the University of Paderborn.

The substitute professorship is held by Dr. Florian Klingler since October 1st, 2021.
Dr. Klingler was appointed as Junior Professor at TU Ilmenau starting September 2022, however will continue holding the substitute professorship up until March 2023.

Important: Keep in mind that the MobCom (Mobile Communication) exam (written) on February 21st 2023 is the final and last MobCom exam offered by Dr. Klingler. Further, in the winter term 2022/23 Dr. Klingler offers the last time the course Networked Embedded Systems (NES) as well as Computer Networks (RN, Rechnernetze), both (NES and RN) as written exams. If you want to participate, please register for it.

Welcome to the web page of the Computer Networks Group!

We are dealing with all kinds of networking: Internet in general, Internet of Things, or data-centre networks. Specifically, we are interested in network function virtualisation and distributed cloud computing: the idea that (1) services rendered by an IT system comprise both networking functionality as well as actual data processing and storage functionality and (2) that these services can be distributed inside a network to optimise for various desirable behaviours. Examples could be to run a latency-sensitive application inside an operator network, to preprocess and compress data even while it is being collected from IoT devices, or to make the processing of wireless signals more flexible by realising it in software, executed on or near to cellular basestations. Other application areas are industrial wireless scenarios or data-centre traffic engineering. We pursue these topics in a range of projects, funded by, e.g., the European Union and DFG. 

In teaching, our group starts from basic systems classes in the fourth Bachelor semester over computer networks and distributed systems classes, leading to Master-level classes on mobile communication and future internet. In addition, we offer courses on performance evaluation as well as regular seminars and project groups.
