The CINEMA project consists of five innovative research efforts (in this Abstract called "subprojects") for the Internet. All these efforts rely on the revolution that virtualization technologies are already bringing to the Internet: a movement that is, we believe, just beginning. In the context of network virtualization technologies themselves, the main focus of the project is on NFV - Network Functions Virtualization technology. The first subproject focuses on the high availability of virtualized network functions and service chains, which consist of the orchestration of multiple virtual functions for the composition of complex network services. The motivation for high availability is clear: the move from hardware to software solutions based on virtualization will only really succeed if the solutions present the required levels of robustness. The second subproject, called NFV_inc, consists of allowing the network infrastructure itself to offer innovative distributed services implemented with NFV technology. The third subproject focuses on the investigation of Distributed Artificial Intelligence techniques for the management of NFV ecosystems. The fourth subproject is focused on distributed algorithms based on the VCube virtual topology, which allows the construction of efficient and scalable distributed solutions. Finally, the fifth subproject focuses on mobility with the O-RAN (Open Radio Access Network) architecture, with the objective of developing robust components to be applied in the context of 5G networks.
