We are now at an inflection point in the utility of the now global communication network. Moving forward, the reach of the network will enable a new class of applications and opportunities to collaborate and communicate. With these opportunities come a number of challenges. As networked applications and services permeate our daily experience, we will require new techniques to improve the security of our data and to manage scale and complexity of the millions of compute and communication elements powering the global network. UCSD's Center for Networked Systems has a world-class team of faculty and students performing cutting-edge research in all areas of computer networks, from optical interconnects and wireless sensor networks to data center architectures and network security.
