Laboratory Introduction

Make the future more excitingmake your inspiration real

Internet Architecture and Systems Laboratory (also called "inet-lab") was founded in April 2011 under the leadership of Professor Kazutoshi Fujikawa. "Make the future more exciting" and "make your inspiration real" are the policies of our laboratory.We research mainly Internetworking, Ubiquitous Computing, Network Security and Network Traffic.

    We research ways to implement more secure and convenient communication architectures that everyone can use.We also consider the next-generation ICT infrastructure technologies and services, and we research what is necessary for it.
    In order not to end the research just on simulation, we verify it and make it useful by using the systems and equipment operated in the Integrated Information Infrastructure Center (ITC).
