Internet As A Computer

Researching IPv6 host and network mobility technology for the coming all un-wired IPv6 Internet.

Research Topics

Evolution of new communication technogies will change our communication style drastically. Internet made big change in our life. It connects most of computers on the earth each other and we archived the most biggest computer network we ever had. The IP (Internet Protocol) technology is mainly designed for stationally nodes which do not move frequently. Recent advancement of wireless communication technologies is now changing the old style communication model. We need to investigate to support larger number of wired/unwired nodes are interconnected each other using various kind of communication technologies. We are researching to support the future huge computer network using the next generation IP protocol (IPv6) and mobility technologies.
