The Internet Research Laboratory is actively researching on the fields of mobile communication technology which includes wired/wireless integration and broadcasting & communications convergence, optical internet infrastructure, and future network technology. Through these research, the quality of life and public convenience would improve through the realization of mobile life and communication services that can be provided anytime, anywhere. Also it would bring the future knowledge-based society into reality.
Our representative research technologies are as follows : the 4G mobile communications, high-speed short-range wireless communications, internet-based converged network, packet-optical integration, converged service platform, next-generation Tactical Information Communication network(TICN) etc. The main focus of our research is on the core technologies and also other technologies that can be vital for green growth.
Throughout the years, we have provided several brilliant achievements such as CDMA, WiBro, QoS Router, etc. All of these have played a pivotal role in the development of the telecommunication industry.
From now on, the Internet Research Laboratory will aim for "the domination of the world market through preemption of personalized mobile multimedia convergence technologies and also by becoming the world-leading country of intelligent mobile". Regarding the 4G mobile communications, our research plan is to focus on 3GPP LTE advanced technology, high-speed mobile internet (IEEE802.16m based WiBro advanced), low-power wireless transmission technology, and Tactical Information Communication network. Also for the Internet(All-IP) based wired/wireless and broadcasting convergence technologies, the focus would be on OmniFlow technology, optical internet technology and converged service platform technology. Through these research, we would like to further develop the current IT technology and also contribute in a way of creating a new industry by merging with various industry fields.
Our research laboratory is composed of six departments with different research areas. The Mobile Convergence Department focuses on the research of 3GPP LTE advanced core technologies that aim for data transfer up to 600Mbps through high-speed wireless transmission. Wireless System Research Department focuses on WiBro-based high-speed mobile internet and core technologies for the next generation of military communications. The Wireless Communication Research Department concentrates on the multi-gigabit wireless transmission technology, IEEE 802.11 VHT wireless transmission technology, and 3GPP LTE terminal modem chipsets.
The Future Network Research Department carries out the research on Internet(All-IP) based wired/wireless and broadcasting convergence technologies. Additionally, research on future network technologies that can be the core of the future network is carried out. The Optical Internet Department research on packet-optical control and integration technology, the next-generation access technology, 100Gbps ethernet, and optical transmission technology. Service Platform Research Department focuses on the research of semantic-based service convergence technology for the preparation of the IT-based convergence service market. Through the world-class research on wired/wireless communications and network done by each department, our institute possesses international competitiveness along with a reputation as a world-leading research institute.
