Objectives and Focus

To develop key technologies and frameworks for networked systems. By combining our research talents and strengths in partnership with key industrial leaders, CNS achieves critical mass and relevant focus, accelerating research progress and creating key technologies, framework, and systems understanding for robust, secure networked systems and innovative new applications.

  • Execution of breakthrough research which dramatically advances networks and networked systems technology
  • Inspiration, design, and demonstration of robust technologies that enable readily usable, flexible, manageable, and extensible networks and networked systems of increasing performance and scale
  • Development of robust networks and networked systems grounded in measurement-based understanding and large-scale evaluation
  • Education of the next generation of top students with a perspective and focus on industrially relevant research, and
  • Acceleration of the rapid advance and widespread adoption of network and networked systems
