Exploiting Open Control of ATM Networks
Project Award Date: 09-01-1997
The objective of the project is to get a proof-of-concept implementation of multiple control architectures sharing resources on the switch and the control plane handling resource allocation and monitoring employing the concept of "SWITCHLETS". Thus we intend to achieve multiple virtual networks running control architectures such as Q.2931, IP switching, FORE native onboard SPANS and ORB-based architecture and resource partioning and management being handled by the switchlet environment. Also involved in the project are investigation of performance, fault tolerance and scalability.
