VITAL++ major objective is to combine and experiment with the best of the two worlds, namely, IMS-like control plane functionality and P2P technology giving rise into a new communication paradigm that will bring a wide range of benefits. The key to achieving this objective, is to put this paradigm under strenuous experimentation, carried out under realistic network conditions using popular applications.
OneLab2 is a successor of the OneLab project, an open networking laboratory for integrating, testing, validating and demonstrating new fixed and wireless networking technologies in real world settings and production environments.
OneLab2 provides an open federated laboratory built on PlanetLab Europe, which supports network research for the future internet.
Within the project about a service hotline for administrations, funded by the ISPRAT Institute (Interdisciplinary Studies on Politics, Law, Administration, and Technology), exemplary scenarios for administrational processes, showing potential applications for this hotline, are being developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS. The developments origin in the concept of the American service hotline 311, realized by means of a call center.
The project IP-Based Emergency Applications and ServiCes for NExt Generation Networks (PEACE), funded through the FP7 programme “Research for SMEs”, aims at providing a general emergency management framework (based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)) addressing extreme emergency situations such as terrorist attacks and natural catastrophes as well as day-to-day emergency cases such as calls to the police or fire brigade.
The True Potential of SOA-Based SDPs over IMS – NGN Service Exposition, together with an open, flexible and intuitively understandable Service Creation Environment not only enables innovative business models for the telecommunication industry, but also for SMEs to enrich and facilitate their communication capabilities.
