The Center for Emerging Network Technologies (CENT) was born as the merger between two previous research centers at  Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies in 2009 as the Center for Convergence and Emerging Network Technologies (CCENT). The Center’s name changed to its current state in early 2018.

CENT’s research efforts and educational activities are aimed at contributing to the understanding and diffusion of new telecommunications, networking and data analysis technologies thus, we welcome the exchange of ideas, projects and technology discussions with the community at large and hope that the educational and technical reports material that we produce and reference becomes useful to a wide audience and promotes the use of new technologies.
