Research Roadmap Driven by Network Benchmarking Lab (NBL): Deep Packet Inspection, Traffic Forensics, Embedded Benchmarking, Software Defined Networking and Beyond
Most researchers look for topics from the literature. But the authors' research derived mostly from development, in turn driven by industrial projects or product testing. They spanned into the areas of cable TV networks, multi-hop cellular, Internet QoS, deep packet inspection, traffic forensics, embedded benchmarking, and software defined networking. Among them, their multi-hop cellular work was the first along this line and has a high impact on both academia and industry, with over 600 citations and standardizations in WLAN mesh (IEEE 802.11s), WiMAX (IEEE 802.16j), Bluetooth (IEEE 802.15.5), and 3GPP LTE-advanced.
