Internet Technologies of the New Generation

researches in the area of computer networks and internet technologies in Russia, developement of the most breakthrough computer networks technologies of the new generation

Consortium "Network and Cloud Technologies"

In May 2013, the meeting on SDN-technologies took place at the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics, Moscow State University. It gathered more than 40 experts from leading universities and scientific centers of Russia, who have decided to create a Consortium of Universities on SDN technologies in the scientific and educational environment.

In January 2020, due to the expansion of the scope of the work of the Consortium, it was decided to rename the Consortium of Universities "SDN Technologies in the Scientific and Educational Environment" into the Consortium "Network and Cloud Technologies".

The Consortium focuses on improving efficiency and achieving significant results in the field of modern computer networks (especially in software-defined networks) and cloud technologies.

As of the beginning of 2022, the Consortium includes 17 members:

  1. Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU)
  2. Moscow Technical University of Communications and Informatics (MTUCI)
  3. National Research University of Electronic Technology (MIET)
  4. Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod (UNN)
  5. Orenburg State University (OSU)
  6. Ryazan State Radio Engineering University (RSREU)
  7. Bonch-Bruevich Saint Petersburg State University of Telecommunications (SUT)
  8. St.Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics
  9. Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech)
  10. Applied Research Center for Computer Networks (ARCCN)
  11. Demidov Yaroslavl State University
  12. Federal Research Center "Computer Science and Control" (FRC CSC), RAS
  13. Peoples' Friendship University of Russia (RUDN)
  14. Moscow Power Engineering Institute (MPEI)
  15. Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR)
  16. Siberian State University of Telecommunications and Informatics (SibSUTIS)
  17. HSE Tikhonov Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM HSE)
  18. Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT)
  19. V.A. Trapeznikov Institute of Control Sciences of Russian Academy of Sciences (ICS RAN)

«The main idea of the Consortium is to create special teams of researchers from different universities of Russia», - explained in 2013 professor of Moscow State University and CEO of Applied Research Center for Computer Networks (ARCCN) Ruslan Smelyanskiy. – «In the world, the development of big and successful research projects is made possible due to cooperation of universities and research laboratories. In the USA, the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI), consisted of 200 universities, enhances experimental research in computer networking and distributed systems, in order to accelerate the transition of this research into products and services that will improve the economic competitiveness of the United States. In Europe, an Integrating Project Fed4FIRE brings together universities in Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Spain, Greece, and Korea. In Japan, the AKARI Architecture Design Project focused on designing a new generation computer network architecture and was supported by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) of Japan».

According to the agreement of the Consortium, it will work in the following directions:

  • Dissemination of the experience of the world best research centers in the field of computer networks in the scientific and educational environment of the Russian Federation. Establishment, support and development of international scientific and technical relations between the leading world centers in the field of networking research;
  • Promotion of early application of innovative network technologies in scientific and educational environment of the Russian Federation;
  • Coordination and organization of interaction between higher education institutions and research laboratories in Russia on the use and development of SDN technologies in education, science and industry;
  • Coordination of the interaction of commercial companies and industrial enterprises with Russian universities for the development and implementation of SDN technologies in high-tech sectors of the economy;
  • Development of educational programs for training and re-training of personnel in the field of network technologies, including SDN;
  • Promotion of the centers of collective sharing in Russia, focused on the implementation of SDN technologies;
  • Formation of best practices exchange system, dissemination of the latest achievements in networking technologies, deployment of the research results in SDN network segments, SDN segments’ technical support;
  • Preparation of proposals for scientific, educational and technical target programs, including the programs of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation in the field of network technologies;
  • In collaboration with the Russian Academy of Sciences, promotion of fundamental and applied researches, requiring significant resource calculations, in the universities Russia;
  • Development of the system of Russian scientific conferences and youth scientific school on network technologies;
  • Promotion of work on the practical use of advanced network technologies to solve urgent problems of science, technology, industry and business.
