The WAND group is the department's computer networks research group.
The group is involved with a range of computer networks projects mostly
focused around network measurement. The group has a strong international
reputation and has close links, including collaborative research, with several other network measurement groups. These include NLANR, CAIDA, Sprint and Agilent.
Recent work includes the design and manufacturing of a range of high
speed passive network measurement hardware (for measuring networks
from 100Mbps to 2.5Gbps), the collection and publishing of long packet
header traces from a 155Mbps ATM WAN connection and leading the
NLANR AMP and PMA projects. Many further details can be obtained
