Multimedia communication can be realized through a variety of wired and wireless transmission media such as fiber optics, radio waves, co-axial cables, power lines, etc.

We aim to construct user-oriented information-communication systems for backbone core networks, mobile communication networks, and ubiquitous home networks.

For that purpose, we research technologies of the network layer, the media access layer, and the physical layer and their integration by taking advantage of the nature of individual transmission media.
