ITTC Project

US- Korea Joint workshop on collaboration in SDN/NFV for Smart Cities

Project Award Date: 08-01-2014


This project proposes a workshop leading toward the establishment of a joint US-Korea research agenda, focused on exploiting software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) in support of smart cities. The goal of this first workshop is to bring key researchers together to present ideas that will lead to a research agenda, and document them in a report that may ultimately lead to joint and cooperative actions between the US NSF and the Korean IITP (Institute for Information and Communications Technology Promotion), which is a newly formed promotion agency under the ICT-related ministry MSIP. The Korean NRF (National Research Foundation) may also participate.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
