TU Delft's
Lab On Internet Science

About Us

At LOIS we work on building a reliable Internet. Our focus areas are software-defined networking, network resilience, and the Internet-of-Things.

Representative Projects

Software-Defined Networking

We have provided SDN tools for network monitoring, fast failover, QoS, and information-centric networking.

Network resilience

We have built a tool for analyzing the vulnerability of a network to many possible hazards (from small-scale failures to large disasters).

Tactile Internet

We have a joint project the Indian Institute of Science on the Tactile Internet. Our objective is to, at the end of the project, be able to shake each others hand over the Internet.


We have focused on two aspects: (1) Together with The Things Network and KPN, we have studied the performance of LoRaWAN, and (2) we are working on SDN techniques for IoT.


  • Fernando Kuipers will give an invited talk on LoRaWAN at The Things Conference.

    Feb. 2nd, 2018
  • Fernando Kuipers, for the 4th time in a row, has been awarded Dinstinguished Member of the IEEE INFOCOM Technical Program Committee.
