Best Demo Award at IFIP Networking2017-06-21
The NEAT project won the Best Demo Award at the IFIP Networking conference, in Stockholm (June 12-15, 2017). The Demo was presented by Zdravko Bozakov (Dell EMC) on behalf of all the authors.
The demo, titled "A NEAT framework for application-awareness in SDN environments", is joint work from KaU and Dell EMC illustrating how NEAT can be integrated in an SDN scenario. The demo shows how, by enabling the OpenDaylight SDN controller to interact with NEAT, policies and path information can be distributed to NEAT-enabled end-hosts to improve the handling of both bulk and latency-sensitive flows."
”This demo award shows that our work within the NEAT project is important and of high quality and we are very happy to receive it”, says Anna Brunström, professor in Computer Science and one of the demo paper authors.
The NEAT project wants to achieve a complete redesign of the way in which Internet applications interact with the network. NEAT aims at offering a richer set of services to application developers and at enabling innovations across the protocol stack.
The NEAT consortium is composed of the following institutions: Simula Research Laboratory (Coordinator), Celerway Communication AS, Dell EMC, Mozilla, Karlstads Universitet, Fachhochschule Münster, University of Aberdeen, Universitetet i Oslo and Cisco Systems.
