Technological advances in networking and e-infrastructures require in-depth follow-up and technological follow allowing the development of major projects of national importance and insuring scalability and openness to new communication and interconnection services of systems and networks.

The activities of the Division of Networks and Distributed Systems target to study, master and introduce technologies associated with e-infrastructures.

These e-infrastructures induce mastering of communication technologies and developing new application architectures such as CLOUD and GRID technologies wich aim to share resources in terms of computing power and storage.

These activities aim to establish e-infrastructures such as the Algerian Research Network (ARN) and the National Computing Grid “ DZ e-Science GRID” and to consolidate the skills and technological know-how.
