WINCORE Lab in the Ryerson University engages in technology-oriented research from the physical to application layers of wireless communications. Radio Resource Management and Radio Access and Networking (RRM+RAN) Group is the leading research group within WINCORE Lab. We offer advanced education and training in research and development in the emerging needs of the today’s communications industry. The research group has an alumni strength of more than 100 as of 2019, that includes post doctoral fellows, research associates, doctoral and master’s students, undergraduate research assistants.

Some highly cited contributions are in the areas of: opportunistic and distributed spectrum access, cooperative sensing and sharing, 2D spreading in multicarrier systems, resource allocation in cooperative cognitive networks, multi-objective resource optimization for green communication Cooperative and small cell networking.

We work with industry through consulting, collaboration, and partnership and companies include Telus, Bell Mobility, Applied Location, PESIplex, Redline Communications, PlayLab, Cloud I.T. and SensorSuite. We successfully completed industrial research and development projects using collaborative R&D grants from NSERC NSERC IPM, NSERC ENGAGE, OCE TPS, ConnectCanada, MITACS, AUTO21 and FedDev ARC.
