Applied Research Lab
The mission of the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) is to advance the state of the art in high performance networking and networked applications, through an aggressive and forward-looking systems research program. Effective systems research requires a blend of fundamental and experimental research activities. Analytical research is essential to developing a deep understanding of research problems, while the design and implementation of prototype systems is required to properly evaluate proposed solutions in real-world settings. Since its founding in 1988, ARL has developed a number of experimental systems (both software and hardware) and has licensed its technologies to a variety of companies. We are currently engaged in two major projects. The first is the Open Network Lab, a remotely accessible networking laboratory for research and educational uses. The second project focuses on Internet Scale Overlay Hosting.
- Network Processor based routers have been added to the Open Network Lab.
- Supercharged PlanetLab Platform allows order-of-magnitude improvement in the performance of PlanetLab applications.
ARL is directed by Jonathan S. Turner.
