Smart Internet Lab
Terabit/second elastic optical transmitter
The Smart Internet Lab is a unique interdisciplinary research hub, combining more than 200 digital experts from around the world. We aim to address key limitations of our current internet system, improving scalability, lowering latency and increasing bandwidth.
We provide a holistic approach to hardware and software co-design, solving critical problems in the global internet evolution. We are one of the few universities offering expertise and combined thinking across the fields of optics, networks and wireless technologies. This enables us to bring together end-to-end, wired-wireless network design and optimisation. We fuse expertise and innovation across Smart cities, AI, autonomous vehicles, Internet of Things (IoT) and eHealth.
The Smart Internet Lab involves academics and researchers from the Communication Systems & Networks (CSN) Research Group, the High Performance Networks (HPN) Research Group, the Photonics Research Group, Research Institutes and experts in other disciplines based at the University of Bristol. We aim to address grand societal and industrial challenges, and to meet continuing cultural demand for improved technological infrastructure and performance.
