Scope of the Project

AI-NET ANTILLAS has set itself the goal of developing new, innovative solutions for these problems on the basis of specific application scenarios. Intelligent end-to-end automation on the network, service and physical level should largely avoid manual process steps and enable fully autonomous network operation in the future. Different network levels should be considered across the board in order to achieve optimization across traditional boundaries.

The focus is on the development of a latency and security-optimized infrastructure for telecommunication networks, with the aim of enabling new applications in the areas of Industry 4.0 and teleoperated and networked driving. The non-functional properties such as flexibility, reconfigurability, energy efficiency and automation are derived directly from the use cases and form the basis for a cross-layer approach that is pursued in this project. The use cases are evaluated experimentally in realistic environments such as the ARENA2036 test platform in Stuttgart.


Planned Contributions

In this project, we plan to develop network reconfiguration and resource adaptation mechanisms in the context of dynamic SDN/NFV-enabled networks. In particular, we would like to study when the reconfiguration is needed (e.g., due to user mobility, traffic increase/decrease), and how these reconfigurations should be efficiently determined and implemented.
