Accelerating network innovation is not possible without strong collaborations between networking professionals, vendors, faculty, and students. InCNTRE offers a number of opportunities to build these collaborations, including:


The Indiana Center for Network Translational Research and Education (InCNTRE) seeks to advance development, increase knowledge, and encourage adoption of OpenFlow and other standards-based Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies through:

  • Educational programs
  • Training
  • Internships
  • Direct networking research
  • Collaboration between faculty, students, and networking professionals

SDN provides an open software interface for controlling the forwarding behavior of networks. This not only allows network operators, researchers, and others to customize their networks, but also plays a central role in the evolution of the Internet infrastructure.

InCNTRE is supported by Indiana University, in collaboration with IU’s Global Research Network Operations Center.
