MAKING4.0 aims to develop an innovative curriculum to modernize the current HE offer in wood and furniture around Industry 4.0 in Malaysia. Thus, MAKING4.0 addresses the aim of modernization of the HE in Malaysia, improving its quality, its relevance for the industry and the skills acquired by students. MAKING4.0 will also boost the internationalisation of HE Malaysian system. To date there is not any project funded by the Erasmus+ CBHE programme tackling only Malaysia as partner country.

H2020-ICT-2016-2 (ID 761727), topic: ICT-7-2016
from 01/06/2017 to 31/05/2020
21 companies, research centers and european univeristies
The overall Metro-Haul objective is to architect and design cost-effective, energy-efficient, agile and programmable metro networks that are scalable for 5G access and future requirements, encompassing the design of all-optical metro nodes (including full compute and storage capabilities), which interface effectively with both 5G access and multi-Tbit/s elastic core networks.
Metro-Haul has taken the 5G KPIs and already determined their implication for the optical network with these 5 targets: (i) 100 x more 5G capacity supported over the same optical fibre infrastructure, (ii) 10 times less energy consumption, (iii) Latency-aware metro network in which latency-sensitive slices are handled at the metro edge ensuring the metro network adds no additional latency, (iv) End to end SDN-based management framework enabling fast configuration time to set up or reconfigure services handling 5G applications, specifically 1 minute for simple network path set-up and 10 minutes for full installation of a new VNF and 1 hour for setting up a new virtual network slice and (v) reduction in CAPEX of a factor of 10, plus a reduction in OPEX of at least 20%.

INvestigating SDN Programmability ImpRovING optical South- and North- bound Interfaces (INSPIRING-SNI) aims to enhance programmability in SDN ecosystems addressing two critical aspects. First, INSPIRING-SNI will control, manage and operate technology diverse environments through the SouthBound Interface (SBI) relying on innovative industry-driven standardization initiatives such as OpenROADM and the expertise of Dr. Garrich in experimental SDN applications for optical networks. Second, INSPIRING-SNI will develop an optimization-as-a-service (OaaS) framework for dynamic optimisation of multilayer backbone/metro networks (IP over optical) jointly with metro/access segments via the NorthBound Interface (NBI), greatly widening Dr. Garrich’s background and empowering his career perspectives. The OaaS framework will be based on the open-source network planning tool Net2Plan, developed within the host group, that is receiving a growing international attention and funding from industry and academia. INSPIRING-SNI will include a strategic inter-sectorial secondment at TID to experimentally validate the SBI and NBI proposals and to provide to the host and Dr. Garrich a realistic perspective on telecom operator needs and challenges.

The results to achieve are: (i) To train production managers and managers of factories in the sector with the appropriate skills to lead the digitization of the factories and turn them into factories of the future and thus improve the conditions for the creation of quality employment. It will be carried out by promoting a better anticipation of ICT needs and developing a better match between skills and the needs of the labor market. (ii) To develop a comprehensive training guide for the implantation and management of factories of the future by dividing the main areas of knowledge into about 300 three-minute audio-visual pills along with motivational techniques for completing the course.

ONOFRE-2 aims at extending the capabilities offered by the converged access/metro network designed in the previous national project ONOFRE by encouraging NFV techniques over a virtualized infrastructure. Virtualization, together with the use of the MEC paradigm, enable both energy consumption and cost reductions, and open the door to new IoT or tactile Internet services. The novelties of ONOFRE-2 are (1) the proposal of architectures, planning methods and holistic control techniques for converged access/metro networks able to comply with the requirements of 5G, IoT and Tactile Internet services, (2) the introduction of the MEC paradigm as a key ingredient to attain the previous objective, and (3) the use of SDN and NFV techniques as additional enabling tools.

ONOFRE project is focused on an access/metro network convergent design, investigating the effects of NGPON2 and NGPON3 evolutions. Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA) mechanisms are studied in depth, analyzing how QoS and clock synchronization requirements constraint the network design. Another goal is to investigate on-demand resource allocation schemes that behave efficiently under high traffic variability scenarios in the ROADM-based multilayer optical metro. Moreover in ONOFRE project we seek on implementing an OpenFlow (SDN) framework for a converged access/metro control plane suitable for this scenario.

University of Zagreb (Croatia), Universidad Politecnica de Cartagena (Spain), The Royal Institute of Technology KTH/ICT (Sweden), The Athens Information Technology (Greece)

This project investigates a novel approach to optical networks security. While most existing prevention measures are hardware-oriented, our goal is to achieve significant prevention measures without the need for specialized equipment, i.e. at minimal extra cost, through careful network planning. The idea is to consider the potential consequences of various physical-layer attacks, faults and security threats (e.g., power jamming, fiber cuts, eavesdropping) and optimize the set of optical connections to minimize the possible service disruption which can be caused in case of such scenarios.
