The Internet has seen a strong move to support overlay applications, which demand a coherent and integrated control in the underlying heterogeneous networks in a scalable, resilient, and energy-efficient manner. A tighter integration of network management and overlay service functionality can lead to cross-layer optimization of operations and management, thus, being a promising approach to offer a large business potential in operational perspectives for all players involved.
- Inter-cloud communication through many operators where applications demand for dedicated traffic quality levels.
- An integrated and energy-aware traffic management considering limited energy resources of mobile devices accessing the cloud.
- The exploitation of meta-information by network operators for the purpose of socially-aware traffic management.
Selected scenarios are ported into test-beds, in which the effectiveness of appropriate traffic management mechanisms, integrated in an innovative architecture, is demonstrated.
