How to measure the impact of the research conducted in a university lab ? There are many metrics that could be used, funding bodies have a tendency to look at quantitative metrics such as number of publications, number of citations, ... Within the IP Networking Lab, our main objective is to perform good and useful work. Some of this work has been recognised with prestigious awards :

Software Defined Networking (SDN) promises to ease design, operation and management of communication networks. However, SDN comes with its own set of challenges, including incremental deployability, robustness, and scalability. Those challenges make a full SDN deployment difficult in the short-term and possibly inconvenient in the longer-term.
We explore effective hybrid SDN architectures that combine SDN with a more traditional networking approach based on distributed protocols. In a number of use cases, hybrid SDN architectures combine the strengths of traditional and SDN approaches, mitigating their respective limitations. As such, they provide incentives to (partially) transition to SDN, and can be appealing even as long-term design points.
