The MobilityFirst project is funded by the National Science Foundation's Future Internet Architecture (FIA) program started in Sept 2010. The FIA program is aimed at design and validation of comprehensive new architectures for the next-generation Internet. This is a three-year project (2010-13) with scope including network design, performance evaluation, large-scale prototyping and end-user application trials.
Design of the Virtual Network based Application Specific Routing technique with the goal of enhancing mobile services through edge cloud computing. Mentioned the CPS application
Design and implementation of a new network service API or the MobilityFirst Future Internet Architecture that provides full access to new network basic service abstractions.
Design and evaluation of MFTP, a clean-slate transport layer protocols for the MobilityFirst Future Internet Architecture based on the concept of named objects.
Development of a satellite-based CDN network with in-network content caching support built on top of the MobilityFirst Future Internet Architecture protocol stack.
Design of a Name-Based Virtual Networking (NVN) framework for end-to-end virtualization and service enhancement. Development of a working prototype using Click modular router.
Design of an API and abstraction layer towards service enhancement through LTE Base Station slicing. Development of a working prototype using Ope- nAirInterface based software LTE eNB.
Design of an SDN based framework for network-assisted dynamic spectrum access towards service enhancement in emerging 5G Radio Access Network scenarios. Development of a working prototype using OpenFlow and OpenAirInterface based software components.
Design of an in-network caching system aimed at improving quality of experience over wireless attached clients. Development of a OpenFlow-SDN based pre-fetching system for video streaming in Information Centric Networks.
Design and development of an hybrid CDN/P2P solution for Content Delivery Networks for the FP7 funded project COntent Aware Search retrieval and sTreaming (COAST).
