NGN & Future Internet Scenarios

The convergence of telecommunication services (voice, text, ...) and data services to an integrated all-IP network is what is usually referred to as Next Generation Network (NGN). In this vision users are provided an ubiquitous service which they can request transparently from different kind of devices and access networks.

Main challenges in this research area are the seamless integration of different access network and communication technologies, the provisioning of services with specific and differentiated QoS, and  the development of standard-compliant solutions which help in the transition from the current networking architecture.
