The State Key Laboratory of Integrated Services Network (ISN) is the high-level scientific research base in the field of communications in China and the high-level talents training base. ISN could date back to 1989 when the plan of its establishemet was approved by the State Planning Commission in 1989. It was formally in operation in 1995. The Laboratory occupies a floorage of more than 6000 square meters and has about 50 full time researchers.
Relying mainly on the national key discipline of Communication and Information System, and supported by the disciplines of Signal and Information Processing,Cryptography, and Military Communication Studies, the Laboratory is orientated to top-flight applied basic research in the field of communication. It conducts researches chiefly on theories and key technologies of new-type communication networks, including new concepts and new systems of communication network and exchange, the theories and methods of source-channel coding and network coding,the theories and methods of high-speed information transmission, the theory and technology of information security, and special kinds of communication system.
The Laboratory has undertaken over 100 national-grade research projects from the national “973 Program”, the “863 Program”, and the National Natural Science Foundation, to the national defense advance research. It has given birth to many representative results in the research on the broad-band wireless self-organized network, the high-speed exchange structure and system of the high-performance broad-band information network, high-efficient real-time image compression coding, high-speed wireless transmission and coding technique, and the designand application of high-security codes. It has won 1 Second National Technology Invention Award, 2 Second National Science and Technology Progress Awards, 7 provincial/ministerial-level science and technology awards, and 1 National Friendship Award. It has published over 900 papers in domestic and foreign journals, of which over 400 have been indexed by the SCI and EI, and about 400 papers at the international conferences, of which more than 200 have been indexed by the ISTP.
