TSSG to present on new way to delivery on NFV, with RINA

By 7th October 2016 No Comments

The culmination of 2 and half years research work on the TSSG co-ordinated PRISTINE project, will be presented at the upcoming RINA Workshop (12th of October 2016),  which will be an integral part of the SDN World Congress 2016, in The Hague, Netherlands (10 -14 October 2016.

The RINA workshop is an annually organised event, allowing researchers interested in the Recursive InterNetwork Architecture (RINA) to present their work and discuss advances relating to their research on RINA. The PRISTINE project and the TSSG work on network management has been an intrinsic part in advancing the design and implementation of the innovative internals of the RINA clean-slate architecture. This includes the programmable functions for: supporting congestion control, providing protection/resilience through load balancing, and facilitating more efficient topological routing, and multi-layer management for handling configuration, performance and security.

RINA is a new way of delivering on network function virtualisation (NFV) providing clean:

  • Layer 2 Agnostic Networking.
  • Global layer 2 vLANs for Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), Cloud Providers and Network Service Providers.
  • Application Specific Name Spaces for Billions of IDs.
  • Inherent Application Security for Distributed Services.
  • Isolated ‘Network Slices’ for End to End Services use that can really Guarantee QoS per slice.
  • Pro-Active Congestion Control.

The TSSG team, which includes Micheal Crotty, Ehsan Elahi and Miguel Ponce de Leon are excited about being able to present their work at the SDN World Congress an industry leading debating forum and showcase environment for the rapidly growing and massively influential, Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualisation industries. Now, with over 100 supporting partners and sponsors, and 1,500+ delegates, the SDN World Congress has established itself as the principal network innovation conference in Europe for the global telecommunications industry. The PRISTINE project and TSSG will be right there in the middle of it with a Stand (Booth 112 on the 1st Floor) and workshop presentation.
