The IP Networking Lab (INL) of the Departement of Computing Science and Engineering at Université catholique de Louvain(UCL) in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium gathers about ten researchers, both PhD students and postdocs.
Today, IP networks are mainly used for data communications and Internet access. Within the next five years, it can be expected that IP networks will also be used to carry other more stringent applications such as telephony, IP TV, ... The INL is actively working on scalable tools, techniques and protocols to allow IP network operators to better support such demanding applications in an Internet that will grow by several orders of magnitude.
The INL has strong commitment to both applied and academic research. We collaborate with other research groups in Belgium and abroad, network manufacturers and network operators. We also contribute to standards within the IETF and IRTF.

Based on results from the Trilogy project, the IETF has recently started the MPTCP working group that builds a major extension to TCP that will allow hosts and servers to use TCP connections that efficiently use several paths. This extension is expected to be very useful for a large number of hosts ranging from multihomed servers to mobile devices having a WiFi and a 3G interface.
