MEDIEVAL Team after the final audit of the project held in Sophia-Antipolis, France. Excellent result and good feedbacks have been got from the reviewers and the PO. Good job for all the team.




Final audit on Friday 11th of October, 2013, in Sophia-Antipolis:.
Three demonstrations has been shown:
  • The first use-case scenario (referred to as "demo 1") focused on a Video on Demand service supported by HTTP streaming over a Content Distribution Network to users allowing the demonstration of Distributed Mobility Management and Path Selection technology. It demonstrates the benefits of the novel mobility scheme for unicast traffic, based on distributed mobility integrated with CDN caching, taking into account traditional radio resources parameters as well as caching requirements to serve the mobile device with the closest cache possible.
  • The second use-case scenario (referred to as "demo 2") was supported by a Personal Broadcast Service streaming UDP content from a wireless source to multiple multicast-enabled users. This scenario optimises the uplink communication by incorporating the benefits of the session manager and SVC multi-link scheduling streaming over multiple heterogeneous interfaces. It also provides significant improvements for the downlink, as the context transfer mechanism for IP Multicast Mobility. The evaluation comprised latency analysis of IEEE802.21-triggered multicast context transfer against legacy solutions, as well as the evaluation of distinct scheduling algorithms applied to Multilink Module, supported by a wireless link emulator.
  • The last and third use-case scenario (referred to as "demo 3") exhibited the benefits of QoE-based traffic engineering in the core network over a multi operator Video on Demand service with active traffic congestion. It highlights the advantages of a MEDIEVAL domain over a non-MEDIEVAL domain and demonstrates that they are compatible and it is possible for users to move between both (i.e., inter-domain mobility).

Delivery of D6.4: 31 July 2013
The delivery of D6.4, Second Periodic Testing Report deliverable, Month 37.
The objective of this deliverable is to report the final results achieved within the MEDIEVAL projects through the use of the testbed and simulation activities as well as the three evaluation scenarios. As such this document describes the details of each of the testbed integration scenarios followed by the obtained results. We achieved and are reporting results in the domains of heterogeneous seamless mobility, multicast mobility, CDN caching optimizations within the operator networks and scalable video technologies. Additionally we have performed simulation evaluation of specific technology to enrich the environment and backup our tested cases in a wider perspective that couldn't be evaluated in the testbed itself.

Delivery of D1.4: 31 July 2013

The delivery of D1.4, Final plan for the use and dissemination of foreground deliverable, Month 37.
This document reports on the dissemination and standardisation activities of the MEDIEVAL consortium. It describes how MEDIEVAL knowledge and results have been exchanged with other European projects, with the scientific community and with the standardisation bodies (IETF, IEEE and 3GPP). Furthermore, a technical report on the MEDIEVAL demonstrations and showcasing at several dissemination events is detailed. Finally, a brief description of the MEDIEVAL web-site and twitter account is provided.

87th IETF meeting: 28 July - 2 August 2013

In order to show the maturity and feasibility of the MEDIEVAL Distributed Mobility Management (DMM) proposed components, an extended version of the demo shown in the 83rd IETF is presented in the 87th IETF in Berlin (July-August 2013). This demo comprises a revised version of the DMM core solution (described in draft-bernardos-dmm-pmip) and its integration with CDNs, as an example of use case.

Future Network & Mobile Summit: 3-5 July 2013

MEDIEVAL project will participate in the next Future Network & Mobile Summit 2013 in Lisbon, Portugal, by showing user's mobility in heterogeneous multicast networks and the potential of multilink-aware connectivity management from sender side in future Personal Broadcasting scenarios. For more details, you can download our poster or visit our booth in FuNeMs.

Delivery of D6.2 on 30th of June 2013
The delivery of D6.2 entitled Final Testbed Status Report. The objective of this deliverable is to report the final status of the testbed setup to be used for the final demonstration of MEDIEVAL. As such, it describes 1) the overall testbed composition and setup, 2) the list of software modules pertaining to the project architecture, including open source components, and 3) the mapping between physical testbed components and enlisted software modules for each of the three defined demonstrators. Furthermore, some of the key recommendations for the deployment and integration of the MEDIEVAL architecture are shared, with the major goal of providing guidelines for future testbed deployment in similar contexts.

New amendment for the project accepted by EC: one month extension, New End date = July 2013.

MEDIEVAL collaborates with Fi-WARE: 26 February 2013

Considering the high interest from the MEDIEVAL consortium to contribute to the development of open source technology and the very good match with the vocation of the FI-WARE consortium, the MEDIEVAL project contributed with the release of an ALTO client source code. The FI-WARE people will build on and extent it with further ALTO protocol elements. It is a very successful achievment of cross-fertilization between research projects at the forefront of Future Internet technologies. (click here for details)
