The proposal of the MediaNet Lab in the first open-call of the SoftFIRE project has been accepted and therefore MediaNet Lab will participate in the first experiments of the SoftFIRE project. SoftFIRE aims at creating an ecosystem of organizations around the technological field of NFV/SDN and and its evolution towards 5G developments. In order to achieve this goal, SoftFIRE plans to aggregate as many as possible organizations and people around an enabling platform. The SoftFIRE platform consists in a federated testbed that comprises very different experimental frameworks and is available for experimenting new services, applications and functional extensions of the platform.

In the framework of the EC-funded research project VITAL, MediaNet lab presented at EC premises during the second review meeting, the v2.0 of the VITAL NFV Manager: A lightweight NFV Orchestrator, capable of composing, deploying, instantiating and managing a Virtual Satellite Network (i.e. a Network Service which includes beyond the terrestrial VNFs, also virtualised Satellite Network Functions). The v2.0 of the NFV Manager has been upgraded with a graphical user interface, which provides resource monitoring per NFVI-PoP of the NFV infrastructure and per instantiated Network Service/Virtual Satellite Network.
The NFV Manager is compatible with the Openstack CCP and Opendaylight Platform, and More >
Media Networks Laboratory is participating in the FP7/SEC GERYON Project, which has started on December 2011. GERYON will provide an unified answer to the problems that system integrators must face when interconnecting different emergency networks by bringing together and deploying in a specialised manner the common technical and operational logic regarding Identity Management, Security, Signalling, Transcoding and enhanced emergency services deployment. Instead of duplicating the same functionality in different gateways for each pair of technologies to be connected, GERYON will extract and unify the related management modules in a technology independent way and will provide mechanisms and interfaces for an More >
New functionalities in IPTV over IMS architecture were developed, which optimize satisfaction of the end-user and resource utilization of the operator’s networks.
