Euro-NF Specific Joint Developments and Experiments
WP Leader: Rui Valadas
Specific Joint Developments and Experiments (SJDE) aim to jointly develop new tools and to perform joint experiments in the context of the research work carried out inside Euro‑NF. This approach, which promotes and supports the shared usage of platforms and tools by the partners in joint and cooperative activities to create long term sustainability, is considered as an important step to promote further durable collaboration and joint work between partners.
The practical implementation of this rather new instrument follows procedures quite similar to those enforced for the well established Specific Joint Research Projects. In particular, joint publications should be targeted. Also, the minimum of Euro-NF participants is equally three, with per project, at most one external participant (institution) invited to participate, a case which has to be justified by a specific well-identified expertise that is missing in the Euro-NF consortium.

|Measuring Concurrent Multipath Transmissions in an Experimental Facility ||The aim of the project is to investigate the performance of concurrent multipath transmissions by measurements within experimental facilities, and to develop appropriate models. Thus, the objectives are split into: (a) Determining how measurements (e.g. one way delay, throughput, etc.) can be conducted within experimental facilities. (b) Implementation of an appropriate architecture allowing measurements on the relevant parameters. (c) Design of mathematical models and consolidation of theoretical findings with the conducted measurements. ||Thomas Zinner || |
Virtual Network Resource Embedding Algorithms
The problem of embedding virtual networks in a substrate network in an optimal way is known as the Virtual Network Embedding (VNE) problem. Several algorithms have already been proposed to solve this problem. This project will develop software (ALEVIN) to compare and evaluate different VNE algorithms against given virtual network scenarios.

|Distributed Infrastructure for Simulations ||DINASTI aims at developing a novel, ambitious and scalable radio simulation platform for heterogeneous wireless systems. The platform will provide a framework to allow inter-communication between advanced system level simulators, such as NS2, NS3 and SPHERE. This immediately allows combining the results of the various simulators. The framework does not only combine results, but also allows the different simulators to interact and act upon changes occurring in one simulator. ||Mario Nunes || |
