The Center for Networked Systems (CNS) is a hub of world-renowned researchers from UC San Diego focused on addressing critical real-world problems in modern computing and data processing infrastructure. Essential to CNS’s success is that our students and faculty work closely with industry partners to identify emerging real-world problems and research new techniques, evaluations, methodologies, and technologies before they become critical. The testament to our approach is not only in the large numbers of CNS alumni practicing this research-oriented approach at our member companies but also in the direct impact we have had in driving technology adoption, standardization, and in the influence of public policy.

CNS has expertise across a wide range of applied research areas, including storage system design, network measurement, and traffic analysis, wireless networking, programming language design, cyber-physical security, data-center networking, cybercrime analytics, and scalable data processing.
