Autonomic Network Architecture – A European Union funded project in situated and autonomic communications (IST-FET)
Exploring novel ways of organizing and using networks beyond legacy internet technology
Ultimate goal is to design and develop a novel autonomic network architecture that enables flexible, dynamic, and fully autonomous formation of network nodes as well as whole networks.
Architectural design that enables flexible, dynamic and fully autonomic formation of large-scale networks in which the functionalities of each constituent network node are also composed in an autonomic fashion
Building experimental autonomic network architecture, and to demonstrate the feasibility of autonomic networking within the coming 4 years
