Graphene-based Wireless Communications

Graphene, a flat monoatomic layer of carbon atoms tightly packed in a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice, has recently attracted the attention of the research community due to its novel mechanical, thermal, chemical, electronic and optical properties. A remarkably promising application of graphene is that of Graphene-enabled Wireless Communications (GWC). GWC advocate for the use of graphene-based plasmonic antennas –graphennas- see whose plasmonic effects allow them to radiate EM waves in the terahertz band (0.1 – 10 THz). Thanks to both the reduced size and unique radiation capabilities of graphennas, GWC may represent a breakthrough in the off-chip communications research area. In this project we will therefore study the application of GWC within the scenario of off-chip communication.




LISPmob is an open-source LISP Mobile Node implementation for Linux. With LISPmob, hosts can change their network attachment point without losing connectivity, while maintaining the same IP address.


Open DPDK Data-Plane

Intel Data-Plane Development Kit (DPDK) allows fast packet processing for network stacks that mostly run as user-space applications. With DPDK implementations can achieve high performance while avoiding the typical disadvantages of kernel-space code. The main objectives of this project are (i) develop an open-source DPDK encapsulation for several popular data-plane mechanisms: LISP, VXLAN-GPE and LISP-GPE. The code will operate either as a standalone module –manually configured via command line tool- or coupled with the LISPmob control-plane. (ii) Analyze DKDP’s performance in various scenarios to better understand its latency and research its optimization capabilities.
