Feature Story: Content Centric Networking – Get Your Data When You Want It, Where You Want It
Today’s networks are outdated. They were designed over three decades ago – for 1970s technologies and workplaces, when people didn’t have to deal with boundless digital data, diverse networks, and multiple mobile and wireless devices. Read about a fundamentally new approach to networking that will drastically simplify people’s lives – ensuring that communication can happen anywhere, anytime, with any device, and using any available means.
People: Renowned industry pioneer Van Jacobson joins PARC to lead development of content-centric networking
Former Cisco Chief Scientist Van Jacobson – renowned for solving the global problem of network congestion, among many other accomplishments – recently joined PARC as a Research Fellow to lead PARC’s content-centric networking research program. Van and other key PARC scientists aim to restructure the way networks manage resources and distribute information – and deliver the next evolution in networking.
In the Marketplace: PARC researchers help create breakthrough parallel architecture for Xerox’s newest printers
Xerox Corp., PARC’s largest research sponsor, recently demonstrated a breakthrough, dual-engine printer platform based on intelligent control software and a parallel architecture. Developed at PARC and at Xerox’s Wilson Center for Research and Technology, the new parallel printer architecture delivers the power of two printers with the simplicity of one, enabling Xerox to deliver unsurpassed productivity and reliability to the digital printing industry. Backed by filings of more than 50 patents, this architecture marks a major shift in Xerox’s product development strategy and will pave the way for radical new printer architectures.
In the Community: California school administrators and PARC researchers to envision the classroom of the future
Each summer, selected members of the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) participate in the ACSA-Xerox-PARC Alliance internship. These school administrators spend a week at PARC interacting with researchers, exchanging insights, experiencing PARC’s unique collaborative environment, and inspiring innovation.Applications for the 2007 internship – which will focus on the classroom of the future and the role technology will play – are now being accepted.
