Projects

Under the conceptual naming of “Integrated and Intelligent Corporate Communications Platforms”, the project aims to develop new product concepts (and their due proofs of concepts) that can induce a paradigm shift in regard to the current practices os corporate ICT usage and their associated fragilities in terms of information management capabilities as well as traceable and structured communication activities. Through the coherent combination of a number of new and emergent technologies Read More...

The weeding to remove vegetable species growing in vineyards and orchards farmland, is a costly process that needs to be repeated. In this process, mechanical and chemical methods are used to remove herbs or to prevent its growth. Plows and cutters are used to remove herbs between plant rows and herbicides are applied on the line between plant feet, in order to kill the weeds. Both methods are considered very aggressive and chemicals remain in the environment and may contaminate water lines, bei Read More...

Selectively Accessing Light Field Faces over Information Centric Networking (SeLF-ICN) The Internet, as we know it, is increasingly being integrated into several different fields of our society. As such, new utilization and performance requirements are being placed over a communications architecture, whose origin dates for several decades. In its conception, scenarios such as ultra-high definition video streaming, or mobile terminals moving between different wireless technologies, were not Read More...

Road traffic agencies need to make informed decisions in order to define which road sections have the greatest risk of traffic-related impacts. In this context, the implementation of ATMS may not only improve network efficiency, but also minimize other traffic externalities. However, this implementation should consider both the level of contribution of each externality and its geographical scale; otherwise isolated measures may just migrate the problem elsewhere, there might be conflicts in mini Read More...
@CRUiSE – Advanced Tool for Cooperative Road USE

This project proposes the development of a world-wide distributed probing platform (with centralize control) to detect traffic routing variations based on round-trip times deviations inferred from multiple and disperse geographic locations. The detection platform is aimed to satisfy the needs of corporate users and not ISP. Corporate uses must be able to protect their network assets by detecting any threatening attack without detailed information about BGP routing information, which are usually Read More...

SONATA NFV: Agile Service Development and Orchestration in 5G Virtualized Networks SONATA targets both the flexible programmability of software networks and the optimization of their deployments. The project will support network function chaining and orchestration, make service platforms modular and easier to customize to the needs of different service providers, and introduce a specialized DevOps model for supporting developers.

During the preparation of the first phase of the research and innovation projects of the European 5G Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP) within the Horizon2020 framework, at Deutsche Telekom’s initiative, the CONFIG consortium was built. The CONFIG project, running without public EU funding, aims at defining next-generation convergent network architecture from a holistic perspective. Huawei, selected as Technical Manager, is among the key players in the project, together with other world-class Read More...
