Cyneta Networks Provides $30,000 for Wireless Computing Research

January 17, 2002

The Computer Science and Engineering Department's Center for Research in Wireless Mobility and Networking (CReWMaN) received a boost today from Cyneta Networks, a Richardson-based provider of advanced switching solutions to wireless network operators. Officers of Cyneta visited with a group of faculty members, research assistants and students in Woolf Hall and presented CReWMaN's director, Professor Sajal Das, with a check for $30,000.

"We're here to support mobile computing research activities," said Shridhar Krishnamurthy, Cyneta co-founder and vice president of corporate development. "Hopefully, we're also beginning a long-term collaborative relationship with UTA. We've noticed the outstanding work that's been conducted here and hope to be able to share in future wireless advances." Cyneta co-founder and Chief Technical Officer Jogen Pathak, Vice President of Engineering Janet Lind and Systems Analyst Smitha Ganeshan also expressed praise for the quality of research conducted at the College of Engineering and offered their support for collaborations with Das and his team.

According to Das, the funds will be used for a variety of purposes, including scholarships, research assistantships, visits by guest researchers, seminars hosted by the center and travel support for CReWMaN students to attend conferences.

CReWMaN researchers are currently focusing their work on mobile computing, wireless data networking, wireless multimedia, pervasive computing, mobility management, and mobile Internet architectures and protocols. Investigations here will blend well with the interests of Cyneta, whose adaptive switching platforms complement existing core wireless network elements and allow carriers to optimize the delivery of Internet Protocol communications in the wireless environment.
