ENTANGLE: intEr- and iNTra-domAin Network function chaininG in multi-cLoud Environment

(Winter term 2019/2020 & summer term 2020)

Services in Network Function Virtualization (NFV), the networking counterpart of Cloud Computing, are, usually, consist of multiple network functions (e.g., Firewall, Load Balancer ) that need to be chained together to work as a whole. Chaining network functions is challenging as network functions can reside in different technological, administrative, and geographical domains and run on heterogeneous resources. This project group will attempt to mitigate this challenge focusing on providing chaining for network functions that are deployed on OpenStack and Kubernetes domains and running on Commodity-of-the-shelf (COTS), GPU, and FPGA resources.

BAcKFLiP: Benchmarking network functions to collect the world largest NFV performance dataset

(Summer term 2019 & winter term 2019/2020)

The goal of the project group is to a wide variety of NFV performance datasets using open source network function and service projects. To collect those datasets and automate the measurement processes, existing measurement tools, like the 5GTANGO NFV benchmarking tool, will be used and extended within this project. Finally, the collected datasets need to be polished and analysed before they are made available for the research community, i.e., through one or more scientific publications. The work will tightly integrate into the work of the 5GTANGO project.

SCrAMbLE: management of ServiCes Across MultipLE clouds

(Winter term 2018/2019 & summer term 2019)

In this project, you will develop and implement a proof of concept for an operating system that orchestrates cloud and network services on a large-scale heterogeneous infrastructure. For example, different components of the services can be deployed as a VM, as a Container, or as an accelerated instance. These components should then be chained together to deliver a certain functionality. You will be working with state-of-the-art tools and frameworks like OSM, Kubernetes, OpenDaylight, etc. This project is in the context of SFB 901 On-The-Fly Computing and the EU-funded project 5G-PICTURE, which you can get to know more closely.

Multi-application data centres

(Summer term 2018 & winter term 2018/2019)

This project group will look at resource management questions in data centres running multiple applications concurrently. We look at the assignment of jobs to servers as done by popular cluster management frameworks (e.g., Apache Mesos), at the needs of challenging applications (e.g., based on big-data frameworks like Apache Spark), and try to integrate the management of computational resources with the management of networking resources. 

SanDMAN - Service Development and Management for softwAre-defined Networks

Network functions like firewalls, proxies, load balancers, or intrusion detections systems are essential parts of today's Internet. They are typically implemented as dedicated hardware boxes that today have to be configured and integrated into the network by hand.

DECaF - DistributEd Cloud Functions

This project group is organized by the Computer Networks group (Prof. Karl) and takes place in the context of the SFB 901.

On-the-fly Networking for Big Data

"Big Data" is one of today's most interesting usage scenarios for data centres. This project group will set out to address some of these concerns.

Smarter Phones I + II

The project group SmarterPhones deals with context-aware resource allocation in mobile networks.

Augmented Internet

Die Verknüpfung von realer Welt und Internet ist aus mehreren Gründen sehr gut geeignet, um mittels eines informationszentrischen Netzes abgebildet zu werden. Aufgabe der Projektgruppe ist es daher, zunächst einen Prototypen einer Infrastruktur zu entwickeln, auf Basis derer Augmented Internet Anwendungen (Anwendungen, die eine Verknüpfung von realer Welt und Internet herstellen) erstellt werden können.

Mobile und drahtlose Kommunikation II - Praktische Protokollimplementierung

In dieser Projektgruppe soll ein mobiles/drahtloses Kommunikationsystem praktisch aufgebaut werden.

Sensornetze und mobile Roboter

Ziel der Projektgruppe ist es, ein drahtloses Sensornetz mit einem mobilen, autonomen Roboter zusammenarbeiten zu lassen. Die Projektgruppe soll eine solche Kooperation am konkreten Beispiel entwickeln und implementieren.

Mobile und drahtlose Kommunikation - Praktische Protokollimplementierung

In dieser Projektgruppe soll ein mobiles/drahtloses Kommunikationsystem praktisch aufgebaut werden.

Evaluating the GNU Software Radio platform for wireless testbeds

In this student research project we implemented a PHY and a ALOHA based MAC on the GNU software radio.
We then evaluated whether this software radio is applicable for building real time testbeds for wireless communication.

Mobile communications: Implementing an 802.11 cross-layer testbed

This student research project extends 802.11a by an OFDMA cross-layer optimization scheme. The result is implemented and demonstrated on a real-time software-defined radio testbed.

Modeling obstacles in OMNeT++ Mobility Framework

Buildings or walls may shield wireless hosts from each other. This Mobility Framework extension helps you model obstacles in your wireless network simulations. The existing mobility models may be used for moving obstacles as well.

Large Scale Ad Hoc Networks

The goal of this project group is a combined simulation and hardware experimental platform to study scalability issues in mobile ad hoc networks.
