Euronetlab

Presentation

EuronetLab is a joint research laboratory that brings together LiP6 (and,through it, the Universit+© Pierre et Marie Curie and the CNRS), the ENST,Thales, and 6WIND. We are involved in creating the Internet of the future.Bringing academic and industrial partners together, we address current researchtopics and we conceive and develop solutions adapted to real-worldtelecommunication systems. Alongside our research, we participate instandardization efforts, and we develop common experimental platforms.EuronetLab also serves as the nexus for a series of national and European-levelpartnerships.

EuronetLab partners

Thales is a global electronics company serving Aerospace, Defence, and Information Technology markets worldwide. 6WIND (http://www.6wind.com) — spin-off from Thales — provides network edge access and solutions in anticipation of the migration of present IP architectures toward IPv6. LiP6 (http://www.lip6.fr ) is a joint laboratory of the Universit+© Pierre et Marie Curie and the CNRS (Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique). It is one of the largest computer science laboratories in France with more than 370 researchers. The ENST (http://www.enst.fr ), through its computer science and networks lab, is a leading research and educational actor in France in information and communication technologies. The ENST is associated with the Universit+© Pierre et Marie Curie through the EDITE doctorate school.

Activities

EuronetLab's research to date has focused on Quality of Service routers and on routers for Mobile Networks. We have recently started initiatives in ambient networking and in multimedia for the next-generation Internet. Ambient networks will have the capacity to self-configure in order to create a dedicated network or to create a community that is dynamic in both time and space, while adapting to the physical environment and its performance limitations. Applications span the civil and defense fields.

Board of Directors

E uronetLab is composed of academic and industrial researchers and engineers respectively from LiP6 and the ENST and from Thales and 6WIND. This joint lab is overseen by a steering committee representing all four partners. It defines objectives and determines the means necessary to reach them. It also verifies that projects remain coherent with the overall goals of the laboratory. EuronetLab was created on March 30th, 2000. It is jointly led by Serge Fdida (LiP6), Andr+© Cotton (Thales), Patrick Coquet (6WIND), and Michel Riguidel (the ENST). Serge Fdida chairs the steering committee. EuronetLab is financed 50% by the industrial partners and 50% by academic and research institutions (the Universit+© Pierre et Marie Curie, the CNRS, and the ENST).
