  13. 13. Outline Global Strategy iLab Today Mission Statements iLab Worldwide: today and tomorrow 13
  14. 14. iLab Global Strategy Focused to ensure critical mass and to be best of class in Europe and competitive worldwide Targeted towards promising research areas with strong industrial relevance Connected locally to industry and IBBT groups and globally for worldwide collaboration 14
  15. 15. iLab Global Strategy Open to industry residents Future proof by design Flexible and adaptable to support a range of research projects (GBO, ISBO, EU, bilateral, IWT, etc.) Sustainable with regard to human resources and recurrent investments 15
  16. 16. iLab Today Support of research activities within a range of projects Collaboration examples: GBO – ISBO: Coplintho, E-Paper, FIPA, IPEA, MADUF, GeoBIPS, TR@INS, Armad@, T-Case, WBA, MCDP, …, QoE, VIN O&O (IWT, bilateral): IWT-Champ (Alcatel), IWT- OSLU (Newtec), IWT-Easy-Wireless (Televic), NIKO European: MUSE, NOBEL, Citizen Media, Phosphorous, Integrail, Magnet Residents: NIKO, VRT, Porthus 16
  17. 17. iLab Today Generic infrastructure applicable in many projects (e.g. test equipment: Smartbits, NX2, Optiview, Avalanche, Opera; terminals/ networks/ servers) Ad hoc infrastructure to support specific projects (e.g. cubes GeoBIPS, DVB-H Maduf, Satellite OSLU, Home gateway NIKO) Also (partially) funded by companies 17
  18. 18. iLab Mission Statements End to End Multimedia QoS (MS1) Supporting audio, video and data In a wireless and wired access environment Considering network/content/terminal Virtual and Intelligent Networked Environments (MS2) virtual storage/computing/information resources Intelligent personalized context aware environment 18
  19. 19. iLab MS1: End to End Multimedia QoS Examples: Network based QoS support in wired (GBO- FIPA, IST-MUSE, IST-NOBEL) and wireless (GBO: WBA, GeoBIPS, Armad@, Tr@ins, ISBO: QoE, IWT-OSLU, IWT-Champ, …) home, access and backbone Content and terminal based QoS support (audio and video) (ISBO-QoE, GBO-MADUF, GBO- WBA, SCONE, …) Performance evaluation of audio, video and data (IWT-Champ, IWT-OSLU, SCONE, …) … 19
