Networks and Optical Communications


The Networks and Optical Communications (NOC) group of AIT is actively involved in novel research, educational and consulting activities in the broader field of optical communications covering aspects related with optical transport solutions and network design in optical access, metro and core segments. Its mission is to perform research on technologies, algorithms, protocols, architectures and transport schemes for evolving high-speed optical communication systems and networks and also to spread this knowledge in the industrial and educational community.

The Networks and Optical communications (NOC) group has been established in late 2002 and  operates within “Athens Information Technology (AIT) – Center of Excellence for Research and Graduate Education”, which was created by the non-profit organization “Research and Education Society  Laboratry in Information Technology (RELIT)”.

Students' Views

“My time at AIT was one of the defining events of my life. I chose AIT because for me it was an adventure to study abroad for sixteen months. The program was challenging academically and I got to be part of cutting edge research in my thesis project, which has given me a good head start for my current PhD program. Also, the opportunity to live in Greece was not to be missed. The country is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the food is excellent.”
