Project Overview

The strategic objective of the EMANICS network of excellence is to bring together all major research groups in Europe focusing on several aspects of the network and service management plane discipline. The resulting Network of Excellence will work together to structure research and development in the field with the aim of building together the next generation management framework.

To this end EMANICS aims at:

  • Collecting and synthesizing requirements towards management frameworks from all application domains and network infrastructures,
  • Developing European consensus & leadership on novel paradigms and models for meeting the requirements of integrated large access to broadband services,
  • Experimenting and implementing new management approaches using advanced Internet technologies applied to target the next generation Internet which will be delivered by future broadband infrastructures,
  • Structuring and integrating the European research in network and service management so as to strengthen the European leadership and innovation in this discipline.
