Centre national d'études des télécommunications

The Centre national d'études des télécommunications (French language acronym CNET, national center for telecommunication studies in English) was a French national research centre in telecommunications.[1][2][3][4][5]

It was created on May 4, 1944 as a French interministerial research centre, but it was placed under the general supervision of the French Minister of PTT (Posts and Telecommunications).[1]

In 1990, Directorate General of Telecommunications (DGT) (part of the French Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications) became France Télécom[2] and CNET became the R&D (research and development) centre of France Télécom.[6][7] In March 2000, CNET was renamed and became part of France Télécom R&D, the research and development division of France Télécom.[8][9] This division was derived from CNET, the Centre commun d'études de télévision et télécommunications (CCETT, created in 1972) as well as other entities. Since 2007, France Telecom R&D is known as Orange Labs, a global network of R&D entities.[10][11]
