Skolkovo team pushes advanced computer networking

The Skolkovo Foundation’s IT cluster is home to a range of next gen computer technologies being developed at the local Applied Research Center for Computer Networks, the Foundation website announced.

The Center leads the cluster’s effort in developing a new generation of networks based on state-of-the-art technologies, including software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).

The Center team is also developing a line of hardware products to complement its software, Skolkovo underscored.

The technologies that th Center is developing are on a list of what the Foundation described as “most advanced and promising IT approaches” of the past decade alongside cutting-edge cloud solutions and big data. The Russian Government has also defined SDN and NFV technologies as national priorities in IT-related R&D.

“The Center has been set up to bring together intellectual potential in software-defined networking and support the development of world-class high-tech products. The global market for network data transfer technologies is estimated to be worth as much as $25bn a year,” said Igor Bogachev, the executive director of the IT cluster.

Between March 3 and March 5, Center projects were showcased at Open Networking Summit 2014 in California, one of the world’s largest events in the field of modern computer networks.
