In-Network Operator Placement for Dynamic Edge Environment

In this BMBF-funded project we study two important aspects of in-network processing: First, the placement of application components in the network based on a hybrid approach to balance the solution quality and execution time and second, the selection of communication patterns for highly dynamic edge environment and its impact on the placement. We look at these problems in an urban network context and validate our findings through real-world scenarios.

CC4BA – Certification Center for Business Acceleration of SDN and NFV

This EIT digital activity is set in the domain of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The project consists of two work streams:

  1. Provision of a vendor-neutral orchestration and management platform for SDN/NFV services. Today, orchestration and management functionalities are mostly proprietary and bound to a certain vendor, creating vendor lock-ins and market fragmentation.
  2. A business case and feasibility study for a trusted SDN/NFV testing and certification center. Besides the market study, the project also defines the service portfolio and operational procedures for such a testing center.
