Tetcos NetSim

NetSim - Accelerating Network R & D
NetSim is a leading network simulation / emulation software platform, used for research and development by 300 + customers across 15 countries 
NetSim features an extensive set of protocol libraries including 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, 802.15.4 based WSNs, IOT, 802.22 Cognitive Radio, LTE / LTE-Advanced, MANET, VANET, IP, TCP and a variety of application models. An easy to use GUI enables users to create network designs and set properties. NetSim provides an animator to visualize packet flow, tabular and graphical view of throughput, delay, loss, utilization etc. A detailed packet and event trace is also available.
Researchers can develop their own protocols / algorithms by modifying NetSim's source C code. NetSim has well designed APIs for interfacing with other software such as MATLAB, SUMO, Wireshark etc. While NetSim simulator is virtual, NetSim Emulator enables users to link NetSim to live applications running on real devices. This allows live traffic to flow via the emulator and experience network effects.

NetSim support eco-system features: extensive videos libraries to help shorten the learning curve; helpdesk & phone tech support; monthly live webinars and regular product updates to customers.

Shanghai WiCO

Shanghai Research Center for Wireless Communications (WiCO: www.wico.sh) is a non-profit research institute, which consists of more than 100 well-educated and active researchers focusing on the R&D of key technologies future broadband wireless and internet of things (IoT), and pilot development for 5G communication systems and IoT. It is closely working with the Key Lab of Wireless Sensor Network and Communication at SIMIT, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in leading the R&D of 5G testbed, IoT solutions, Fog Computing, software-defined networks, and MIMO channel measurement and modeling. 
From 2014 to 2016, sponsored by the MOST 863 Hi-Tech program, WiCO led a consortium of 27 partners, including China Mobile, China Telecom, Huawei, ZTE, Datang Mobile, CATR, Nokia, NSN, Anite, and several top universities, to design and implement the first pre-5G testbed in China. Following the Open-Source philosophy, a series of detail MIMO channel measurement results in multiple frequency bands and different communication scenarios have been published at the open website (www.wise.sh) for global 5G R&D communities. From 2012 to 2016, sponsored by the National S&T Major Projects, WiCO pioneered the design and deployment of the world longest IoT water monitoring system for the South-to-North Water Diversion Project (1432 KM) in China, which ensures the daily supply of clean-water for over 35 million people in Northern China. WiCO established software defined LTE network platform, with a complete set of core network and access network to support field demonstration of LTE communication based automotive driving in ShanghaiTech university Zhangjiang campus. WiCO is actively involved in developing prototype and international standards of fog computing recently, it will establish a fog testbed in ShanghaiTech University campus and demonstrate a number of applications in both IoT and future 5G.
During the last five years, WiCO has generated over 300 national and international technical patents, published 11 books and over 260 refereed research papers, and submitted over 120 standard proposals. 

Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network

Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network (SingAREN) is Singapore's national research and education network.  It is the sole provider of local and international networks dedicated for serving the Research and Education community in Singapore. SingAREN’s members consist of the Institutions of Higher Learning, Research Organizations, Government and network industry players. SingAREN facilitates high-speed transfers of large datasets across international boundaries for scientific research, and enables advanced network technology demonstrations through its resilient international links and high-speed fiber network.
SingAREN Open Exchange (SOE) interconnects Singapore’s research and education community to the Research and Education Networks (RENs) in other countries, ranging from bandwidths between 1Gbps to 100Gbps, to Asia, Australia, Europe and the U.S. SingAREN offers value-added services to Singapore’s Research and Education community, including eduroam, Singapore Access Federation (SGAF) and Database Mirroring Services.

National Supercomputing Centre

The National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore was established in 2015 and manages Singapore’s first national petascale facility with high performance computing (HPC) resources to support science and engineering computing needs for academic, research and industry communities.  Funded by its stakeholders, including Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS), and Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), with substantial funding from the Singapore Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), NSCC aims to democratise access to supercomputing.  NSCC works with local and international organisations to catalyse collaborative HPC projects and programmes which support national research and development initiatives, attract industrial research collaborations and enhance Singapore’s research capabilities.
