The mission of the Laboratory of Multimedia Networks and Services (MEDIANETS) is to combine traditional strengths in media technologies and broadcasting with new competences in IP-based and mobile multimedia communications, applications and services. Research and development activities include media delivery systems and services, 3D media technologies, self-organizing networks and mobile multimedia.

MEDIANETS has been active in significant European and national projects. BIONETS, a EU FP6 Integrated Project pioneered in the research of biologically inspired, self-organizing networks. In OPTIMIX (FP7), IP-based video streaming in heterogeneous wireless environment was investigated. CONCERTO (FP7) aimed at supporting interactive multimedia telemedicine applications in a network-, content- and context-aware environment. In a recent industrial R&D project, iParking, an intelligent parking system was developed to assist drivers in parking houses. In a new project, the intelligent parking service will be extended by using crowdsensing. The laboratory participated in the large-scale national initiative FIRST by contributing to the research of novel architectures and protocols for the Future Internet.

MEDIANETS’ teaching activity spans over the whole BSc-MSc-PhD structure. Along with basic courses in computer networks, it is responsible for two BSc and one MSc specializations in media technologies and media communications. MEDIANETS also hosts a Cisco training laboratory and offers hands-on lab courses, IPv6 and Cisco CCNA courses for our students and industrial partners.

In cooperation with leading European engineering schools, MEDIANETS participates in the EIT Doctoral School and in the international EIT Master of ICT Innovation program, offering a specialization in Digital Media Technologies.

MEDIANETS took part in the organization of the IEEE PerCom conference held in March, 2014 in Budapest. Beyond delegating one of the General Co-chairs several lab members were actively involved and gave a supporting hand to PerCom.
