Wide-Scale Broadband Middleware for Network Distributed Services

Description:

This project involves eight Universities and Research Consortiums in Italy. The project purpose concerns the design, implementation and evaluation of network services and infrastructures to support virtual communities. A middleware platform will be deployed, providing ubiquitous information access to both fixed and mobile users, and supporting Quality of-Service requirements, security, device mobility and location independency. In this framework, our group is involved in the following issues:

  • Definition of the architecture for level 7 switching and of the interaction scheme based on the peer-to-peer paradigm, to support information sharing with QoS requirements
  • Design of network policies supporting the level 7 switching architecture
  • Implementation and evaluation of the architecture and policies mentioned above.

Supported by:

The project is supported by the Italian Ministry for the University and the Scientific and Technological Research (MURST) for the years 2003-2005.
