IPRI’s network research is led by the Advanced Network Architecture (ANA) Group and explores the future of network architectures, systems, and protocols. Our research targets core design principles and technology for large, decentralized, open-access networks, such as the Internet.

The network research projects are broad in scope, ranging from detailed TCP performance analysis to the interplay of economics and technology in future internet works. We are particularly concerned with the fundamental design principles that underlie tomorrow’s networks — what we call the architecture of networks. Our research methods include engineering studies, software and prototype development, and the study of networks using a multidisciplinary approach.
