Data Networks innovative ideas for my final year project ?

Hello Guys,

I'm gonna do an individual final year project next year (8 months of work - beside other course modules).

My wishlist for the project (sorted by importance):

1

The topic to be mainly about the new innovations in Data Networking (i.e. IPv6, wireless, optic fibres, new routing protocols, new security and firewalls, VoIP, etc).

2

The project to involve heavy programming (whether building whole programs in C++ and/or Java, or programming embedded systems in C, or smartphone applications, etc).

3

The topic to be part of a research group work or requirement (i.e. for the project to have a future).

4

The topic to be recognised in Industry, by the major Networks and/or IT companies.
My problem is that I find it difficult to have a project with the above requirements described clearly and with clear deliverables that could be exploited commercially.

I've had previous suggestions before like:
ipv6 and ad hoc networks between mobile devices. vmware, cloud computing, the rise of global cybercrime, etc
But these are all just broad areas

Does anyone have any suggestions for a topic ? i.e. a certain standard to implement ? a certain project to build ? a certain innovation to research and develop ?

Please be detailed in your answers.

If you want something truly innovative / cutting edge, that will blow your mind ..

Look into what is being done with quantum entanglement, teleportation, and cryptography.
Quantum cryptography can NOT be cracked, ever, due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.   Example if anybody even observes the message, then the message will change, so the two parties  that are exchanging data will instantly know an unauthorized person looked at the message.  

Throw in quantum teleportation, where one entangled photon does what the other entangled photon does, instantly, even if the two photons are in different galaxies, and you get into research about whether or not the laws of the universe are being broken if you try to use this for instant communication of information (literally instant, zero delay, regardless of the distance).  

Here is a good article about some breakthroughs out of Beijing to get you thinking

Thanks a lot for the mindblowing article. But I doubt if a student could work on such a project in my final year in University, this sounds like it needs like the newest research labs on earth. If you could help me put that idea into a project discipline, i.e. What task should I work on ? What goals should I achieve, etc ?

Any other ideas guys ?

Not what I were looking for, but have been advised to ask my tutor rather than on the forum.
