European projects


(2006-2010) :

OneLab has be financed by grants from the European Framework Programmes FP6 and FP7. We refer to each successive round of funding as a different phase of the project. To date there are two phases:

OneLab1 This phase of the project ran from September 2006 to August 2008. The central aim was to establish an autonomous European testbed for research on the future internet, which was achieved through the creation of the PlanetLab Europe testbed. Additional aims were to extend, deepen, and federate this testbed: extension to new technologies, notably wireless; deepening through adding monitoring capabilities; and federating with the global PlanetLab system.

OneLab2 This second and more extensive phase (running for 27 months from September 2008 to November 2010) aims to build on the foundations laid under OneLab1, and continue the project of extension, deepening, and federating. Extension now includes to "customer" testbeds - including SAC testbeds, wireless testbeds, and content-based testbeds. Deepening continues with the incorporation of some major European measurement infrastructures: DIMES and ETOMIC. Federation continues with federation between PlanetLabs, extending to PlanetLab Japan, as well as federation with the "customer" testbeds, such as the Haggle and ANA testbeds.

ITEA Expeshare


Expeshare is an ITEA project to enable virtual communities to share media experiences in their personal devices legally and securely. The final aim is to develop and implement an architecture for a wireless peer-to-peer network that links personal devices and realizes DRM and mobile payment functionality and allows for legal and secure sharing of multimedia content and experiences. Over 25 European partners are involved mainly Philips, Nokia, Telefonica, VTT, the GET-INT and the university of Evry. The role of INRIA in this project is to participate to the design and evaluation of protocols for the network and Peer-to-Peer layer in order to support the sharing of media in a wireless network. We are studying the feasibility of running actual Peer-to-Peer solutions over wireless networks and trying to understand their limitations. Based on that, we are proposing new solutions to efficiently localize resources in a wireless network and to share it with other interested users. The propositions made by INRIA will be the subject of integration to modules proposed by other partners and extensive evaluation by simulation and real experimentations. The BitHoc software [49] gives an idea on our contribution within Expeshare.



ECODE is an FP7 STREP project that involves in addition to the Planète group, several European partners as Alcatel Belgium, Univ Liège, Univ of Louvain, LAAS and Univ of Lancaster. The project started in September 2008 and will last until September 2011. ECODE stands for Experimental COgnitive Distributed Engine. The goal of the project is to develop, implement, and validate experimentally a cognitive routing system that can meet the challenges experienced by the Internet in terms of manageability and security, availability and accountability, as well as routing system scalability and quality. By combining both networking and machine learning research fields, the resulting cognitive routing system fundamentally revisits the capabilities of the Internet networking layer so as to address these challenges altogether.

Within this project the Planète group is responsible of the adaptive sampling and management use case. Our goal is to develop an autonomous system for network monitoring and traffic management. Starting from a measurement task like for example the calculation of the traffic matrix, the estimation of flow sizes and rates, the prediction of flow rate increase/decrease, or the detection of anomalies, the system will configure the sampling rates in network routers so as to optimize the accuracy while limiting the overhead (volume of collected traffic, packet processing and memory access in routers). The system will include modules to sample the network, collect the sampled data, analyze it, find the optimal sampling rates, and configure routers accordingly.



PLANETE is part of the IST WSN4CIP project. Its goal is to provide solutions that use WSN to protect Critical Infrastructures.



PLANETE is part of the IST UbiSec&Sens project. The goal of this project is to develop new security protocols for wireless sensor networks. The follow-up of this project, called WSN4CIP, started on january 2009. It goal is to provide solutions that use WSN to protect Critical Infrastructures.
