Mission Statement: Internet-Scale
    Systems Research Group
Lead the evolution of the Internet through
fundamental protocol and network-centric systems
research
 – Ground research in real-world prototypes that are deployed across
   diverse user communities
 – Unify on-going and future research projects
 – Facilitate technology transfer and standardization
 – Work closely with industrial partners in an open laboratory
   environment

SUR Project plus continuing
commitment will make IBM a charter
member
                                                                       9
                 Strategy

• Leverage interdisciplinary systems expertise in
  network-based applications, scalable services,
  network-connected computing platforms
• Work collaboratively across applications, OS,
  networks, architecture
• Interact closely with industry, to obtain early
  access to leading edge technologies and
  facilitate tech transfer
• Cultivate ties with Bay Area network and
  systems research community


                                                    10
         Internet-Scale Systems

• Extremely large, complex, distributed,
  heterogeneous, with continuous and rapid
  introduction of new technologies
• Feasible architectures
   –   Decentralized, scalable algorithms
   –   Dynamically deployed agents where they are needed
   –   Incremental processing/communications growth
   –   Cross-layer protocol design and optimization
• Prototyping, deployment, evaluation,
  experimentation



                                                           11
        Benefits of Sponsorship

• Involvement with outstanding Berkeley graduate
  students
• Participation in a portfolio of large-scale, inter-
  disciplinary, pre-competitive research efforts with
  only modest investment, leveraging investment of
  other industrial partners
• Access to all ISRG-developed software, prototypes,
  simulation tools, and testbeds
• Early access to group’s research results through
  on-campus participation and retreats
• Support the expansion of cadre of researchers with
  expertise in Internet-scale systems
                                                        12
   Intellectual Property Issues

• All ISRG results are placed in the public domain
   – Widely disseminated and distributed for educational and
     research purposes
       » Research reports, Web site
   – Sponsors can receive non-exclusive, no-fee licenses for
     commercialization
       » Only sponsors participate in twice yearly retreats
• To encourage an open research environment,
  ISRG researchers would prefer not to sign non-
  disclosure agreements




                                                               13
     Other Possible Participants

•   AT&T           •   Lucent
•   Bay Networks   •   Microsoft
•   Cisco          •   Motorola
•   Ericsson       •   Philips
•   HP             •   Sprint
•   IBM            •   Sun Microsystems
•   Intel          •   Xerox
