Improving the Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol

Fri, 07/15/2011 - 09:41 by Olivier Bonaventure • Categories:

The Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) was proposed by Dino Farinacci and others to improve the scalability of the Internet architecture. However, the potential benefits of LISP can be much broader than this.

In this project, we both participate in the development of LISP and its standardisation within the IETF and we develop extensions to LISP.

COST Action IC0703 : Data Traffic Monitoring and Analysis (TMA)

Mon, 07/14/2008 - 13:47 by Olivier Bonaventure • Categories:

Modern packet networks are highly complex and ever-evolving objects. Understanding, developing and managing such environment is difficult and expensive in practice. Traffic Monitoring and Analysis (TMA) has always been seen as a key methodology to understand telecommunication technology and operation, and the complexity of the Internet has attracted many researchers to face traffic measurements since the pioneering times. The recent advances in the field of TMA suggest that evolved TMA-based techniques can play a key role in the operation of real networks.

ECODE (Experimental COgnitive Distributed Engine)

Mon, 07/14/2008 - 13:44 by Olivier Bonaventure • Categories:

The goal of theECODE (Experimental COgnitive Distributed Engine) project is to develop, validate, and implement a cognitive routing system, which uses machine learning techniques, that can meet the future Internet challenges, in terms of manageability, security, availability, and accountability. The project combines networking with machine learning expertise, in order to address these challenges in the most efficient way.

The aim of the project is to develop new solutions for the control architecture of the Internet that remove the known and emerging technical deficiencies while avoiding prejudging commercial and social outcomes for the different players.

Improving the convergence of routing protocols

Wed, 05/09/2007 - 17:36 by Olivier Bonaventure • Categories:

The ICI project, sponsored by Cisco Systems aims at developing new techniques and protocols to improve the convergence of routing protocols. Within this project, we have studied the convergence time of IS-IS in large ISP networks, proposed techniques to avoid transient loops during routing convergence of IS-IS and OSPF, proposed techniques to protect BGP peering links from failures, ...
