Other companies working with universities include Hewlett-Packard Co. and Compaq Computer Corp., both of which have a research lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"It's been a long time since any of the biggies have opened a new research facility," Mr. Halperin says.

Fujitsu's California lab doesn't work closely with either a college of university. In College Park, Fujitsu will work with the University of Maryland to start test environments and carry out field experiments.

Research at the College Park labs will focus on developing technology to advance the evolution of the Internet and develop computers that perform functions people find useful.

The first project at the labs will focus on pervasive computing, says Kazuhiro Matsuo, vice president of Fujitsu Laboratories of America. …
