The U of M (University of Memphis’) has not just played a game of football against UCLA. The two schools have a lot more going on between them in the last few days. 

The U of M has been working around with several different schools in the country. One of them includes the University of California, Los Angeles. It plans to launch an association that will increase the network security and address all Internet architecture and Named Data Networking aspects. The consortium will also involve creation of new applications.

Along with UCLA, the University of Memphis is recognized as one of the founding members with UC San Diego, Washington University in St. Louis, Colorado State University, University of Michigan, University of Arizona, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. 

The U of M is working on a combined technology project with UCLA. The National Science Foundation granted $5 million to this project in May. The project has received more than $13.5 million since 2010 from National Science Foundation’s Future Internet Architecture Program. The confederation was formally introduced in public on September 4th and 5th at UCLA. 

Lan Wang, associate professor of computer science at University of Memphis, said the NDN consortium is an excellent platform and student’s forum for industry and academia to share ideas and gain different experience. Since, U of M is the founding member of the association, they are likely to play an integral role in influencing the NDN research and benefit from multiple interactions with the industry members and other academic members of the consortium.
