UvA-led European project aims to lay foundations for 6G network architecture

UvA is leading a new three-year European project on the system architecture for future 6G mobile networks. Such a 6G network will support new applications with extreme performance requirements. The Informatics Institute of UvA is leading the DESIRE6G project and assistant professor Chrysa Papagianni of the Multiscale Networked Systems-group is the project coordinator.

Publications

Software

Software tools, infrastructures, and demonstrations are, just as scientific publications, considered to be important research output of the MNS group. Over the years, the researchers and PhD-students of the MNS group developed several research tools and infrastructures.

*

DRIP

The Dynamic Real-time Infrastructure Planner (DRIP) is a microservice suite for planning and provisioning networked virtual machines, for deploying application components and for managing runtime infrastructures based on time-critical constraints.

INDL-NML

The intuition our group had years ago was that we could leverage Semantic Web technologies to identify the exchangeable knowledge required to federate networks. We proved that we can manage the complexity and heterogeneity of the Internet with semantically rich models.

LOBCDER

Large OBject Cloud Data storagE fedeRation (LOBCDER) is a data management system that federates storage resources. It is a part of the Data and Compute Cloud Platform4 of the VPH-Share project.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin is a framework for distributed Data Transformation Network developed in the COMMIT Project. It implements a protocol for distributed data processing. A data packet is a self-contained processing unit, which incorporates data, state, code and routing information.

SARNET Demo SC16

This video shows a screencapture of the SARNET demonstration at SC16. The demo shows a virtual network that leverages Software Defined Networks and Network

WeevilScout

WeevilScout. Given the ubiquity of Web browsers and the performance gains being achieved by JavaScript virtual machines, a question arises: Could Internet browsers become yet another middleware for distributed computing?

OpenLab

Introduction

The OpenLab facility is managed by the MNS group and available to all researchers within the SNE cluster and the associated educational programs, e.g. Software Engineering (SE) and Security and Network Engineering (SNE) masters.

It is designed to support research and experimentation in software defined networking, embedded systems, distributed systems, Future Internet architectures and protocols, and secure data sharing platforms, and evaluate the applicability of Machine Learning in those research domains.
