Key Features

The Network Orchestration Laboratory is a collaborative laboratory with the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT). In particular, we are developing the JGN-X network testbed, a nation-wide experimental network infrastructure founded by NICT. JGN provides high-speed international connectivity to the United States, China, Korea, Singapore, and Thailand, and forms part of a global R&E network infrastructure. Those students who are interested in real-world ICT infrastructure technologies find great opportunities to conduct research not only utilizing the facilities of JGN, but also applying their products to JGN.
