Technology for a realistic end-User access network test-bed (TORRENT)

Project ID: IST-2000-25187
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.

TORRENT is building a test-bed for multi-service residential access networks that will allow the project to demonstrate the benefit of intelligent control, both for the customer and for the network operators and service providers. The test-bed will support the definition of architectures that allow a home user's quality of service expectations to be met by employing - in a way that is transparent to the user - the most appropriate core transport network, be it connectionless or connection-oriented. Systems will be prototyped to segregate traffic according to its optimum mode of transportation and to manage routing and charging. TORRENT encompasses systems integration activities, new developments, and close liaison with emerging standards and specifications.
