Management of the Future Internet

Objective

The goals of FLAMINGO are (a) to strongly integrate the research of leading European research groups in the area of network and service management, (b) to strengthen the European and worldwide research in this area, and (c) to bridge the gap between scientific research and industrial application. To achieve these goals, FLAMINGO performs a broad range of activities, such as to develop open source software, establish joint labs, exchange researchers, jointly supervise Ph.D. students, develop educational and training material, interact with academia and industry, organize event, and strongly contribute to (IETF and IRTF) standardization.
FLAMINGO develops a joint program of research activities to contribute to the development of network management and operation frameworks for the Future Internet (FI). Three major and federating challenges will be investigated:1. Network and service monitoring, based on flow-based techniques, enabling scalable monitoring systems to share collected data and feed the knowledge plane and decision algorithms of the FI.2. Automated configuration and repair, based on self-* features and frameworks, enabling billions of devices and managed objects to manage themselves in a fully distributed and autonomic way.3. Economic, legal, and regulative constraints, which do border management systems and operational solutions of the FI.
FLAMINGO provides a unique consortium of leading researchers, with complementary knowledge and strong ties to industry, and covering the entire spectrum of network management core functions and application domains, which are necessary to build, integrate, and disseminate the knowledge of the management plane for the FI.
FLAMINGO will strongly impact the European development of network management technologies, the development of standards and open-source software in this area, the organization of interoperability and testing labs, and the training of current and the education of future researchers in this area.
