When you talk to the researchers at Rutgers University's Wireless Information Network Laboratory, you wonder how anyone actually communicates with radios. Or would want to.That's because WINLAB is focused on research to solve some of the toughest problems facing large-scale wireless nets, from radio coexistence in crowded frequencies to re-engineering the Internet for mobile traffic. Research efforts like those of WINLAB eventually will help enterprises deploy multiple radio technologies and enable their own mobile users to exploit new services delivered wirelessly.
