Canada’s first independent Internet research centre is now open at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Burnaby, BC, a $1.5-million facility dedicated to developing the next-generation Internet.

BCIT’s Internet Engineering Lab is a facility designed for applied research and development in networking technologies. Focused on Internet (Layer 3) problems, the lab concentrates largely on the study of design and management of Internet networks.

The lab offers high-tech companies and university researchers the latest in networking devices to perform QoS, routing, conformance standards and network performance tests. The lab will allow Canadian high-tech companies to perform research and testing in Canada, instead of using available centres in the U.S. While there are similar facilities run by larger Canadian companies, they are all for internal use.
