Welcome to AV Chair
Welcome to the Chair "Next Generation Networks (NGN)" (also called Architekturen der Vermittlungsknoten - AV in German) lead by Prof Dr. Thomas Magedanz.
This chair - founded in 2004 and funded by the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft - is part of the Institute for Telecommunication Systems within the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Technische Universität Berlin.
AV maintains a strong cooperation with the Fraunhofer FOKUS competence center Next Generation Network Infrastructures (NGNI), which is also directed by Prof. Magedanz. AV performs applied research and development activities in the field of converging service and network environments, looking for the migration from legacy telecommunication infrastructures towards integrated service environments on top of fixed and mobile Next Generation Networks (NGNs) and the emerging Future Internet (FI). The overall AV/NGNI research vision “NGN2FI Evolution” reflects these research activities. In this regard, AV scientists are active in various national (BMBF) and international (European Union) research projects (see research) related to Future Internet research in order to develop related software toolkits and testbed infrastructures for efficient proof of concept validation of innovative research ideas.
In addition, AV presents lectures, seminars and project courses for Diploma, Master, and PhD students in the above mentioned fields (see teaching). International students are welcome. All courses are presented in English from SS 2011.
