IBBT Research department: Future Internet

The IBBT Future Internet Research Department covers 3 major areas. Fixed and wireless networks provide the necessary connectivity to billions of heterogeneous end-points supporting a wide range of traffic flows. Challenges include ever growing bandwidth demands, support of real-time and interactive services, QoS guarantees, reliability, and energy efficiency, as well as new network architectures and protocols for mobile networks, wireless sensor networks, self-organising virtualized networks and cognitive networks. Autonomic systems and advanced service oriented technologies will be the common Internet platforms to manage complexity and to support the development of advanced applications. This covers distributed computing environments (grid and cloud infrastructures and platforms, smart client systems), autonomic networking and systems with autonomic computing and network resources, as well as knowledge management for the Internet of Services, advanced technologies for future Internet service platforms, ubiquitous services design and service deployment and dependability. 3D media technologies and novel human-computer interaction paradigms will enable a full immersion of the Internet user and his environment. This focuses on making the Internet further media-rich, to achieve a significantly increased sense of presence at remote locations and with people at a remote site. Human-computer interaction research deals with collaborative interaction, context-aware user interfaces, interaction paradigms matching new device capabilities and user expectations, user-centric software engineering for complex interactive systems. This will be demonstrated at the booth with a.o. a Media Sharing demonstration, and movies on related projects.
