The Programmable and Intelligent Networking (PINet) Lab is a research lab in the Faculty of Computer Science at Dalhousie University. Prof. Israat Haque leads the lab.

The current projects of the lab span network performance, reliability, and security aspects. We explore the benefits of cutting-edge networking programmability (e.g., software-defined networking and network function virtualization) and AI/ML algorithms to solve various practical networking problems, where our focus goes to wired and wireless networks, e.g., WAN, data centers, Edge, and IoT.

We desire to innovate and create social impact through high-quality work. PINET lab currently has over ten graduate and undergraduate students. We commit to foster diversity and always welcome highly motivated top students from all over the world.

The lab offers courses on Software-Defined Networking, Information Security, and Network Computing at least once a year.
