Dr. Arne A Nilsson

Professor Emeritus

| Biography

My research and teaching interests are in networking. The last three decades have seen an enormous development in the networking area and we expect that the trend will continue. Today we are mostly interested in wireless networking and wireless services. The development of the new technologies for the 4G and 5G wireless systems are challenging and fun. I have been involved with the early ARPAnet experiments and all of the networking development in North Carolina.
