The mission of the Mobile Computing and Multimedia Laboratory (MCML) is to perform innovative research in the areas of mobile computer communications and multimedia systems. Members of the lab are investigating wireless and mobility problems such as routing protocols and algorithms, resource and service location protocols, performance evaluations of NFS and TCP, and mechanisms to improve throughput over wireless links. In addition, issues related to (video) data encoding and compression, resource allocation, traffic characterization and shaping, and multimedia teleconferencing are also being addressed. Finally, a new class of operating system especially suitable for multimedia applications has been designed and developed.
