Mission

Today, multi-domain/technology control plane structures for joint compute, software, network and Virtualized Network Function orchestration are created in a static manner as a result of different management actions; we believe that such control plane structures must be created, configured, re-configured and decommissioned on demand. Therefore, we research, design, implement and evaluate protocols and functionalities related to this/these inter-domain interface(s).
