Welcome to AV Chair

AV Banner

Welcome to the Chair "Next Generation Networks (NGN)" (also called Architekturen der Vermittlungsknoten - AV in German) led 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 Software-based Networks (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 emerging Future Internet (FI) technologies. The current focus areas include the fifth Generation Mobile Network (5G), Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, the Internet of Things (IoT), Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The overall AV/NGNI research vision “NGN2FI Evolution” reflects these research activities, and in this regard we are active in various national and European research projects (see 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 Bachelor, Master, and PhD students in the above-mentioned fields (see teaching). International students are very welcome - all courses are presented in English.
