Communication Networks

Chair: DACS

Introduction

DACS focuses on dependable networked systems. A (networked) system is called dependable, whenever reliance can justifiably be placed on the services it delivers. Tailored to communication systems, which can be wired, wireless, or embedded in other systems, this means that we aim to contribute to the design and implementation of dependable networked systems, as well as to methods and techniques to support the design and dimensioning of such systems, such that they are dependable, in all phases of their lifecycle. We thereby interpret the term dependability as encompassing availability, reliability, performance (quality of service) and security.
