Enterprise next generation Network Vision 2010

Objective

Today modern society has reached a high dependability on ubiquitous services and networks. Especially in crisis or emergency situations the availability of these services is crucial. Today governmental and rescue entity communication services are characterized by a strong technical compartmentalization. The interworking and the availability of communication resources cannot be assured in crisis situations.

This proposal highlights and deploys concepts to enhance the availability of these services and of the existing networks by leveraging redundant communication channels wherever possible and using automatic redirection in case of network failures. In crisis situations rescue teams have to be assembled on the fly. Mobile and ad-hoc networks are seen as a possible solution for that. Additional research on these networks will be conducted in this project to fulfil the requirements of crisis intervention teams.

The problem of identification will be resolved using new research results in wireless and ad hoc networks, where esp. the integration of distributed knowledge of the current network environment (location information, RFID messages, recommended trust relations, etc.) into the protocols is a key issue for context adaptable recognition. With IPv6 there already exists a platform for many of the ICT aspects related to crisis scenarios.

With Luxembourg as first test bed and the Luxembourg Government as partner in the project, there is an ideal possibility to show the feasibility and usability of the results in a living environment and provide the basis for all European countries. A transfer of the technology through a deployment in Slovenia is planned in the second phase of the project.

The results of this project will not only be usable for governments risk and crisis management but will also become the integral part of enterprise and public networks fulfilling our Next Generation Network Vision for ubiquitous Networks in 2010 - "u-2010".
