Raytheon Helping to Redesign the Internet

Raytheon BBN, a division of NEC member Raytheon, is working to develop a more efficient Internet. The effort is part of a National Science Foundation initiative called Global Environment for Networking Innovation (GENI), which is working to replace or improve the data-clogged 45 year-old system.

GENI came into existence eight years ago. Since then, some of the world’s most renowned computer and technology experts have contributed, all working towards a common goal: making faster and more efficient ways to transfer data. The team behind GENI hopes that the technology they develop will make the Internet more convenient both for household users and professionals such as EMTs, meteorologists and doctors.

“You can do most or all of these things with the current Internet. It just takes more work to do it and makes less efficient use of resources. GENI lets researchers and service providers experiment with and develop these capabilities more rapidly and efficiently,” said Mark Berman, the Raytheon BBN Technologies executive who is head of the GENI project.

The New England Council applauds Raytheon for its work to improve this universally important system.
