Current Initiatives

Future X Days

The networks of tomorrow will put you at the center of the world. We're inventing the technologies to make it happen.

Le Garage

Many of today's industry giants were built from modest beginnings – literally in someone's garage. At Bell Labs Villarceaux, we're reinventing the startup.

University Programs

Nokia Bell Labs collaborates on today's key technical challenges with the best and brightest university students.

Code Junkies

As the birthplace of C, C++, and Unix, it's only fitting that we would host one of the largest developer meetup groups in New Jersey.

Shannon Conference: Future of the Information Age

We celebrated Claude Shannon's centennial birthday by hosting a unique two day conference on the future of digital information.

GreenTouch Consortium

We're working to transform communications to reduce the carbon footprint of our devices, platforms and networks.

G.W.A.T.T.

Nokia Bell Labs has developed an application that measures the benefits of the latest technologies on network energy consumption.

Programs

Algorithms, Analytics & Security

Our researchers are at the forefront of algorithmic and computational sciences, disciplines essential for managing and securing complex systems.

Applications and Platforms

We're working on rapid creation, deployment and upgrades of network applications with new flexible infrastructure.

Fixed Networks

Researchers are defining new network architectures that are both commercially viable and striking in their ability to enable new kinds of services and capabilities.

IP and Optical Networking

Nokia Bell Labs and the award-winning ION Lab are pioneering techniques and technologies that drive disruptive innovation in the scale and flexibility of Internet Protocol (IP) and Optical Networks.

New Materials and Devices

Materials physicists are researching material structures at the micro and nanometer levels to improve data transmission systems and advance data networking capabilities.

Wireless

Nokia Bell Labs has several active projects targeting the exploding demand for wide-ranging wireless access and new modes for transmitting massive quantities of data.

iBGP and Constrained Connectivity

We initiate the theoretical study of the problem of minimizing the size of an iBGP (Interior Border Gateway Protocol) overlay in an Autonomous System (AS) in the Internet subject to a natural notion of correctness derived from the standard "hot-potato" routing rules. For both natural versions of the problem (where ...

A Heavy Traffic Approach for Queue-Aware Power Control in Interfering Wireless Links

In this work we address the problem of power allocation for interfering transmitter-receiver pairs so that the probability that each queue length exceeds a specified threshold is fixed at a desired value. One aplication is satisfying QoS requirements in a very dense cellular network. We address this problem using heavy ...

Bell Labs Technical Journal

Bringing scientific and technical findings to the public, serving as a primary conduit to distribute landmark R&D.

The scientific discoveries and technological innovations produced by Bell Labs research and engineering have been critical not only to the evolution of global telecommunications but, more widely, they had a considerable impact on the technological base of the global economy and, indeed, on our daily lives.
