Advanced Networking Division

  • Advanced network service as a platform for research and education -

Outline of Research Division

Advanced Networking Division touches not only planning, management, and operation of Nagoya university Integrated Communication Environment (NICE), but also activities about several R&D for information infrastructure technologies and network services which backups next-generation campus information network. We also donate for graduate school education as a part of Information Network Systems Laboratory in Department of Information Engineering, Graduate School of Information Science.


Research Topics of Division

Development of Next-Generation Network

  • NICE4
    To achieve high availability and high operability, we modulate network lines and switches, or develop original management system.

  • Campus wide wireless LAN
    Expanding wireless LAN in campus which gives both safety and availability by utilizing Meidai ID.

  • Providing safety network access
    We provide several systems to improve security such as firewall, intrusion detecting system (IDS), virus check, spam check, SecureNICE.

Development of Network Service Technology

  • Trust building support technique
    We develop automated trust proofing technique between persons and machines in open network such as the Internet.

  • Language grid
    We research about techniques to realize several multilingual application by connecting multilingual information systems on the Internet each other.

Development of Green Computing Platform Technology

  • Low-power computer architecture
    We research about power consumption reduction technique by cogitating computer organization.

  • Virtual server management algorithm
    To reduce baseline power consumption which does not depends on server workload, we research about virtual server management algorithm.

  • Dynamic network management via OpenFlow
    By utilizing OpenFlow which can reconfigure network organization in software operation level, we explore to reduce power consumption of the network.
