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.

The Go2Edge Network is a multidisciplinary team of 15 entities that aims to combine the experience of these entities, coordinating research efforts and sharing results on technologies that bring computing and storage resources closer to the edge of the network. To this end, a multidisciplinary vision is developed with complementary capacities and interests diverse in the technologies involved in the work scenario: (i) distributed computing, (ii) cloud and fog computing, (iii) communications networks, (iv) cyber security and (v) end applications allowing to exploit these technologies.

Leonardo BBVA TIC0038
from October 2018 to June 2020
SCOOTER aims at connecting two-wheel vehicles and equivalent with their environment, with the main objective of offering services in the areas of safety, traffic efficiency and green mobility. We are proposing a hardware/software solution that consists of an on-board unit (OBU) on the enabled vehicle and the connection with the user’s mobile device. Since nowadays the mobile phone has become an unseparable tool for most people, we are basing our solution on creating a mobile device interface to seamlessly integrate vehicular applications in smart-phones connected with cloud-based services. These services will be fed by data collected from light vehicle OBUs. For our vision to become a reality, we need a highly integrated unit that abstract the application programmer form the potential multiple communication technologies included in the OBU. This way we will implement a middleware to manage all available communication channels (802.11p, 4/5G and LPWAN families) on the basis of a common IPv6 network access. Our platform will offer a base monitoring platform with proactive communication with the infrastructure in the form of beaconing, enabling a base for platform-adapted security and urban mobility services on the booming two wheeled transport systems. Our project also aims to demonstrate a real prototype to prove efficient driving on two wheeled transports such as scooters.

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.
