CSN: Customized Software Networking across Multiple Administrative Domains

September 2017 - August 2021

CSN aims to introduce an innovative multi-domain network slicing architecture, along with supporting algorithms and mechanisms, to sustain both mobile network and service customization at different granularities (i.e., per vertical, per service and, when required, per individual user). The key objective is to provide programmability and scalable resource orchestration to facilitate a flexible, optimal and customized instantiation and life-cycle management of vertical segment services via the means of network slicing combing resources across different administrative domains. To always ensure short latency, the mobility of both the mobile services and the customized mobile networks will be seamlessly enabled as per the mobility features of users.
