As stated in the DoW (Description of Work), the objectives of the UMOBILE work package 6 “Dissemination, exploitation and standardisation”, related to the dissemination activities, are:
Through this dissemination report, WP6 intends to inform about the achievement of the mentioned goals.
The document reports information on all the dissemination actions till July 31st, 2016. All meeting agendas, presentations and number of participants are included.
This deliverable (D4.1) is the first out of five to be produced by WP4 to deal with QoS. In WP4 we address the challenges of QoS with congestion control mechanisms that enhance QoS by means of avoiding congestion problems that might result in packet loss, latency and low throughput.
The UMOBILE project devises interactions between two different domains:
D4.1 discusses the first version of a congestion control protocol, called In-Network Resource Pooling Protocol (INRPP) that addresses congestion control in TCP/IP networks. It extensively covers the specifications for a Flowlet Congestion Control to be used in the Internet Domain. In addition, we introduce a preliminary discussion of the development of the Flowlet Congestion Control to be used in the UMOBILE Domain. The final version of the protocol will be discussed in D4.2.
In D4.1 we also provides a broad performance evaluation through simulations to assess the INRPP mechanisms and to quantify the improvement of INRPP over other congestion control protocols.
D4.1 is based on deliverables D2.1, D2.2, D3.1 and D3.3. Deliverables D2.1 and D2.2 describe the requirements of the end-user and the system, respectively. On the other hand, D3.1 and D3.3 cover the UMOBILE architecture. The methodology used in this deliverable is as follows:
Background: This report is written in the framework of Tasks 1.2. “Project Administration” and 1.3 “Periodic Management Reports” of UMOBILE project and summarizes the management activities that took place during the first reporting period of the project (February 2015-July 2016). It also presents the key issues addressed in the project, achievements and open issues.
Objectives: The aim of this report is to inform about UMOBILE management procedures and activities that took place from the beginning of the project till the end of the 1st reporting period, July 2016. Deviations from project plan and open issues are also presented.
Results and implications: Full report of management activities and proposed changes to the workplan. It must be noticed that this report express only the authors’ views -the European Commission is not liable for any use that may be made of the information contained therein.
Background:This report is written in the framework of Task 3.1 “DTN overlay design and convergence layers for underlying protocols” of UMOBILE project. The deliverable aims to describe work on the UMOBILE core architecture and is accompanied by the implementation of the architecture so far and documentation on the code.
Objectives: The core activity of WP3 is the design and implementation of the UMOBILE platform. Departing from the existing properties of DTN and ICN, we establish an architectural framework that extends connectivity options by being delay-tolerant and exposing a common information-centric abstraction to applications. UMOBILE aims to advance networking technologies and architectures towards the conception and realization of Future Internet. In particular, UMOBILE extends Internet (i) functionally – by combining ICN and DTN technologies within a new architecture, (ii) geographically – by allowing for internetworking on demand over remote and isolated areas – and (iii) socially – by allowing low-cost access and free user-to-user networking. The goal of this document is to provide a detailed description, along with a manual when applicable, of the new features, mechanisms and applications that have been developed so far as part of the UMOBILE architecture. Implementation code so far is also provided. The basis for UMOBILE platform is the Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture, one of the most promising ICN implementations, and UMOBILE features are being built in line with NDN. In this deliverable:
1. We ﬁrst describe the UMOBILE vision and highlight our contributions in each part of the architecture,
2. We then focus on the speciﬁc features that we have designed as part of UMOBILE and
3. We conclude with a clear description of the next steps that the consortium will follow to achieve the integration of all components and the extensive evaluation of UMOBILE platform.
This document covers system and network requirements (described based on RFC2119 notation), as well as assumptions, for the high-level design of the UMOBILE architecture. A first version is provided on M18, while a refined description of system requirements, assumptions will be provided on M30, as deliverable D2.3.
The final goal is to identify the overall requirements and assumptions of the UMOBILE framework, which will be devised based on the detailed analysis of the four applicability pictures described in D2.1. Special attention is given to the needed alignment with the Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) architecture, and the most relevant proposal for an information-centric networking architecture (ICN) that fits the identified UMOBILE system and the network requirements.
The starting point for this report is deliverable D2.1, which describes typical accessibility scenarios in different environments, namely, urban, remote and disaster areas, as well as requirements from the end-user perspective.
The methodology used to devise deliverable D2.2 is as follows:
This document covers the UMOBILE architecture ICN layer specification, as well as UMOBILE services, for the specification of the UMOBILE architecture.
The final goal of this document is to provide a detailed description of the overall specification of the UMOBILE architecture. Special attention is given to the needed alignment with the Delay-Tolerant Network (DTN) architecture and the most relevant proposal for an information-centric network architecture (ICN) that fits the identified UMOBILE system and network requirements. The provided specification drives the development and implementation of the UMOBILE architecture.
The deliverable envisions UMOBILE’s main objectives in terms of standardization activities in the area of contributions and co-operation with various standardization bodies.
UMOBILE aims to advance networking technologies and architectures towards the conception and realization of Future Internet. In particular, UMOBILE extends Internet (i) functionally – by combining ICN and DTN technologies within a new architecture, (ii) geographically – by allowing for internetworking on demand over remote and isolated areas – and (iii) socially – by allowing low-cost access to users but also free user-to-user networking as well as to promote user-centric networking in all its aspects.
The UMOBILE project has identified a set of relevant standardization bodies, mostly focused on the ICN, DTN and global Internet fields, that will be monitored to guarantee the alignment of the UMOBILE solution with the latest standards and to identify potential contributions to the ongoing standardization activities.
This report describes Liaison within and outside of the H2020 Programme. The report is divided into seven sections. Section 1 describes UMOBILE Project and liaison targets with other projects and bodies. Section 2 presents related projects funded by FP7 and Horizon 2020, whereas Section 3 presents related national and other projects. Relevant organization and standardization bodies to UMOBILE can be found in Section 4. Liaison planning with local authorities is analysed in Section 5.
Open Access Model garantees free access for users and free dissemination of knowledge. UMOBILE participates in the "Pilot on Open Research in HORIZON 2020": participating projects are required to develop a Data Management Plan (DMP), in which they specify what data will be open.
This Data Management Plan explains which of the research data generated in UMOBILE will be made open, how data will be shared and which procedures will be put in place for long-term preservation of the data.
Following "Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020", the DMP clarifies that scientific generated research data will be easily:
The Dissemination Plan (D.6.1) is produced as part of the activities of Work Package 6 “Dissemination, exploitation and standardisation”. It is a public document which will be made available on the project website, in the "Download" section, for external parties interested in the dissemination of UMOBILE project. This document is marked as Milestone MS12 in the DOW (Description of Work).
As stated in the DoW, the objectives of the UMOBILE work package 6 “Dissemination, exploitation and standardisation”, related to the dissemination activities, are:
Through this dissemination plan, WP6 intends to facilitate the achievement of the mentioned goals.
The document describes the dissemination activities that have been achieved during the first six months of the project (February 2015 - July 2015), and provides an outline of what is planned for the next months (August 2015 - January 2018). An overview is given of all dissemination opportunities identified through traditional communication channels such as events attendance, project publications and project presentations, complemented by online activities based on the project Website, and on the main social platforms.
Collaboration with related projects carried out by some of the partners will be established and will create synergies in the dissemination of UMOBILE as a part of the international projects focusing on information centric networking technology (ICN) and delay tolerant network (DTN). Details are described in D.1.2 "External Liaison Overview".
This document covers user requirements for the UMOBILE architecture, from the perspective of the end users. The goal is to ensure that there is an alignment on DTN as well as ICN requirements for end users, in order to support information or data-‐centricity. The mentioned requirements shall be integrated in the protocol stack located in end user devices and eventually, customer premises equipment. As the Birst step and in the context of task 2.1, the UMOBILE consortium has been discussing typical accessibility scenarios and requirements in different environments, namely, urban, remote and disaster areas. The project has analysed assumptions and requirements, as well as related literature, and technology. A key focus relates to the applicability of social interaction, derived from contacts between citizens not necessarily acquainted, and how different applications and services will see and perceive different user requirements.
