Section: Application Domains
For the last year the main application domain of the project remained Telecommunications. Within this domain, we consider applications that follow the needs and interests of our industrial partners, in particular Orange Labs or Alcatel-Lucent Bell-Labs, but also SME's like UbiStorage or 3-Roam .
Mascotte is mainly interested in the design of heterogeneous networks. The project has kept working on the design of backbone networks in particular optical ones (see Section 6.1 ) but also on wireless access networks (see Section 6.2 ) and on overlay (Peer to peer) networks (see Section 6.3 ), in particular inside the European FET project AEOLUS.
Part of these research is done within the join laboratory INRIA-Alcatel-Lucent Bell-Labs, (participation in the ADR HiMa on autonomous dynamic management of virtual topologies and within the ANR ECOSCells leaded by Alcatel-Lucent Bell-Labs). Mascotte has also a contract with Alcatel-Lucent Bell-Labs, on dynamic compact routing. An emphasis is put on green networks with low power consumption financed with the ANR DIMAGREEN. We have also developed two cooperations with SMEs. The first one is on data storage in peer-to-peer networks with the SME UbiStorage within the ANR SPREADS (Safe P2P reliable Architecture for Data Storage). The second one is on backhaul networks with the SME 3-Roam ,and is funded by the région PACA project RAISOM (Wireless IP Service Deployment optimization and monitoring)
