The Laboratory of Advanced Computing and Networking Systems (ACANETS) at UMass Lowell is led by Prof. Yan Luo, addressing the challenges in Big Data Analytics, Software Defined Networking and intelligent sensing. The current research projects span GPU acceleration of deep learning algorithms, software defined network measurement, network data analytics, secure network architecture and embedded sensing. The research places a strong emphasis on the design and evaluation of experimental prototypes to validate theoretical assumptions and results. The ACANETS lab has been supported by National Science Foundation, Department of Transportation, Intel, Raytheon/BBN, and other industrial partners. Prof. Yan Luo welcomes inquiries on future collaborations.
The laboratory of Advanced Computing and Networking Systems (ACANETS) was founded by Dr. Yan Luo in 2005. The research at ACANETS spans broadly on advanced computer architectures and network systems that facilitate high speed networking, embedded intelligence and data-intensive science discoveries. The research outcomes from the team include the first open source network processor based OpenFlow switch, deep packet inspection NetFPGA engine, programmable flow classification systems, and so on. The ACANETS Lab has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Intel, Raytheon/BBN, Altera, Xilinx, Netronome and Extreme Networks.
