RINA Workshop 2018 report

Since the early workshops, RINA-based technology has matured significantly over the past few years. There are multiple RINA stack implementations, prototypes of all the key value propositions, fully operational testbeds and test traffic generators, hackathon examples of engaged developers, and clear use cases with immediate industrial application. There are demos of how to transport RINA

Last week ARCFIRE researchers presented and demoed Rumba at the Infocom CNERT workshop. The presentation was done after the an excellent keynote on “The Art and Science of Testbed Experimentation“, which complained about the lack of automation in experimental research. This was an excellent precedent for discussing Rumba, which automates deployment, execution and monitoring of RINA experiments in a

Slides of RINA tutorial @ Telefonica

As part of the activities that took place during the ARCFIRE F2F meeting in Madrid organized by Telefonica, ARCFIRE representatives delivered a RINA tutorial to interested Telefonica employees. The tutorial, scoped within Telefonica’s internal training programme, was designed to introduce RINA to groups of Telefonica that were not previously aware of it but that may benefit from

Bringing RINA on the stage: demos at EWSN’18

Nextworks R&D team has participated to the International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN), organized by IMDEA Networks and Univ. Carlos III Madrid from 14-16 February 2018. The conference is a highly selective single-track international conference focusing on premier research results at the intersection of embedded systems and wireless networking – an area of

ARCFIRE paper on Rumba accepted @ IEEE Infocom CNERT

A paper describing Rumba – the RINA experimentation automation framework – entitled  “Rumba: a Python Framework for AutomatingLarge-Scale Recursive Internet Experiments on GENI and FIRE+” has been accepted for presentation at the IEEE Infocom 2018 Workshop on CNERT (Computer and Network Experimental Research using Testbeds) in Hawai.  Congratulations to the iMec and Nextworks ARCFIRE teams!!

Addressing the serious challenges of next generation networks with an architectural approach

There are many challenges to achieve next generation networks. Many of the “marketed” benefits of 5G cannot be achieved unless the network allows new approaches to Security, End to End (E2E) Service Layers that are independent of lower layer resource allocation and guarantee Quality of Service (QoS). In fact ARCFIRE advisory board member Sue Rudd has gone one

Two new ARCFIRE papers accepted @ IEEE/IFIP NOMS

Two papers on network management, entitled “Taming policy complexity: Model to execution” and “5G Networks Must Be Autonomic!” have been accepted for presentation at the IEEE/IFIP NOMS conference in Taipei. The first paper discusses a formal universal policy model for policy-based management that separates invariant parts from variant parts, while the second one presents a conceptual approach for modeling

Paper on Distributed Mobility Management in RINA accepted @ IEEE WCNC 2018

A paper entitled “Mobility management in RINA networks:experimental validation of architectural properties” has been accepted for presentation at the IEEE WCNC 2018 conference in Barcelona. The paper discusses and validates experimentally the architectural properties of RINA that facilitate achieving scalable and efficient distributed mobility management across multiple networks. Abstract Mobility management is a challenging problem in current
