One of the problems in video signal transmission is sound and image synchronization. Lack of synchronization strongly affects the quality perceived by the recipients of the system, therefore for the content provider it is very important to quickly detect such distortion. Currently, there are practically no automatic systems on the market that detect the problem of video and sound synchronization. In the initial research conducted at the Department of Telecommunications, an algorithm was developed to detect this distortion.

The aim of the project is to develop, investigate and implement integrated SDNRoute system. SDNRoute will support routing process in Software Defined Networks (SDN). Nature of the project is analytical, simulation and development, while development is dominant factor. SDNRoute system will periodically define routing policies for each upcoming time window. SDNRoute will utilize information originating from several sources. First of all, data regarding current state of the network provided by the SDN controller.

With the growth of the information in different media such as TV programs or internet, a new issue arises. How a user can access to the information which is expressed in a foreign language?

The idea of the project is to develop a multilingual help system of understanding without any human being intervention broadcasting news, presented in a foreign language and to compare it to the corresponding one available in the mother tongue of the user.


Wireless networks, such as cellular networks, are in common use.  Their constantly increasing data rates are made possible by their integration with optical networks.  Cognitive wireless networks and elastic optical networks are the newest research topics in the field of these networks.  In the future the integration of the two network types will be software-defined, i.e.

The aim of the project is to find a fair admission control mechanism for flow-centric networks. The project is divided into two tasks:
1. Presentation and comparison of fair admission control mechanisms in Flow-Aware Networks (FAN). In this task, a new mechanism will be proposed for the FAN networks.
2. Comparison of FAN and DiffServ networks related to assuring fairness. In this task, a new method to provide fairness in DiffServ networks will be specified.

The research project ASTYANAX is focused on the development of a reliable methodology for the application of a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system on an aerodyne (rotorcraft and airplane platforms) structure.

The STAR project (SwiTching And tRansmission) has been started on January 1st, 2013. The project is financed by NCBiR and coordinated within CHIST-ERA ERA-Net Programme.  The AGH Department of Telecommunications participates in the project together with University of Leeds, University of Cambridge and Ecole Normale Superieure of Lyon. A key observation in current core networks is that most of the power is consumed in the IP layer while optical transmission and optical switching are power efficient in comparison, hence the inspiration for this project.

The E-NEXT Network of Excellence targets a key area of Information Society Technologies, namely computer networking. Framework Programme 6 aims to develop the technological basis and the people-skills necessary to deliver the promise of the information revolution - new audio-visual services and products, electronic delivery of business, health, education, entertainment, government, science and so on - and this will fundamentally impact every aspect of life and work.

(EN) GAMA - the gateway to archives of media art - provides an online access to a variety of European media art archives representing a large spectrum of media art. The quality of GAMA thrives on the very specialized focus of the archives and content providers - ranging from historical material of the 1920s to the present, and from nationally and geographically orientated archives to collections focusing on thematic perspectives.

The CONTENT Network of Excellence targets Content Delivery Networks for Home Users, as an integral part of Networked Audio-Visual Systems and Home Platforms. CONTENT aims to build the European Research Area in this important communication topic by integrating a group of experts with the purpose of taking forward the state of the art and increasing European leadership in Content Networks.
