Welcome to IP-FLOW homepage

IP-FLOW (IP FLows over Optical and Wireless) is a three-year European project supported in full by Marie Curie Chair Excellent (EXC) Actions and has been awarded to Prof. Yoram Ofek. An interview with the Professor Yoram Ofek can be found here (in Italian)

The focus of IP-FLOW project is on the flow control of IP packet over the Internet. Timing and flow control are critical since they directly affect how users perceive the quality of IP-based services, such as voice-over-IP or video-over-IP.


  • IEEE ICC-007 ONS Best Paper Award
