Multiple organisation interconnection for collaborative advanced network experiments (MOICAINE)

Project ID: IST-2000-25137
Funded under: FP5-IST


This document provides a brief update on the achievements of a project funded under the "Research Networking" theme of the FP5 Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It describes the objectives, experimental work and results of the project.

The MOICANE project investigated several aspects related to providing proper end-to-end quality of service (QoS) in the future new generation network environment, on both the theoretical and pragmatic points of view. Eight network islands featuring different access technologies and implementing the IETF IP QoS models, namely IntServ and DiffServ, within their access and core IP networks were set up. Advanced new components such as RSVP/IntServ-aware applications, QoS-aware DiffServ border routers and bandwidth brokers were deployed along with existing equipment. Trials and tests were then performed and the validity of the currently proposed methods for the support and management of QoS IP services in a single and multi-domain context evaluated and assessed.
