Computer Networking is a huge domain. Scope for research in Computer Networking is quite large. Networking is the backbone of Digital world. Network Security, Network Performance, Network Model are some of the areas which are still evolving and have lot of opportunities for research.
Networking is central to modern computing, from connecting cell phones to massive Cloud-based data stores to the interconnect for data centers that deliver seamless storage and fine-grained distributed computing at the scale of entire buildings. With an understanding that our distributed computing infrastructure is a key differentiator for the company, Google has long focused on building network infrastructure to support our scale, availability, and performance needs.
Our research combines building and deploying novel networking systems at massive scale, with recent work focusing on fundamental questions around data center architecture, wide area network interconnects, Software Defined Networking control and management infrastructure, as well as congestion control and bandwidth allocation. By publishing our findings at premier research venues, we continue to engage both academic and industrial partners to further the state of the art in networked systems.
