Technologies of software-defined mobile connectivity control for Internet-Integrated dense environments


Access to resource and service on the Internet has become crucial for people's everyday life. While there have been huge technological advances after the advent of the Internet, its architecture has remained ossified into a communication model of four decades. This has impacted in the users' expectations of network usage that can not be met, e.g. continuous stream-based transmissions, such as download and VoIP calls, are disrupted when moving the mobile device between WiFi and 3G/4G networks. In this context, this research project has focus on the investigation of network management and operation to enable efficient mobile Internet connectivity from the network infrastructure available in dense environments (of people, objects and vehicles), commonly available in urban centers. Investigations will start from software-based control technologies, such as mobility awareness, programmable networks and resource aggregation of multiple network connections. We aim to create technologies (a) to improve mobile connectivity by exploiting the access diversity available in dense urban environments, hence, to improve the quality of service and users' network experience; and (b) to provide innovation to change the status-quo of network architecture towards a Future Internet. This research project is going to be developed at the Institute of Science and Technology of the Federal University of São Paulo, where the proponent works for. (AU)
