Led by Prof. Rothenberg, our mission is blending excellence in research at academia and industry to advance the state-of-the-art in computer networking through impact results.
Our group conducts research in several applied areas of networked systems (e.g., SDN, NFV, ICN, data center networking, Internet routing).
We work on innovative networking and compute technologies and the open research challenges often in partnership with the industry, and other research groups and open source projects worldwide.
We tackle fundamental research problems and aim at achieving impact by producing relevant research results, highly-cited publications, leveraging cutting-edge software and networking technologies, in an open innovation approach based on public release of research data and artifacts (open source software) allowing for research reproducibility.
INTRIG members can be charatecterized by their creativity, deep thinking, and a strong competitive drive. Interested in joining us?
A sneak peek on some of our latest progress and achievements!
Abstract Data Plane Compiler (Mar/2016 – Nov/2019). Funded by Ericsson. SDN approaches (e.g. OpenFlow 1.x) expose new control knobs for programming the network but the knobs’ functions are largely dictated by the fixed functionality of the forwarding devices. The feature mismatch on programmable dataplanes causes an “information leakage” from the SDN switches to the controller(s), […]
5G Multi-Domain Orchestrator (2016-2018). Funded by Ericsson. It is envisioned by this project proposal to firstly articulate the state of the art for the intelligent deployment of decomposed network services (e.g., 5G slices). Aiming to support the increased traffic workload of mobile along with QoS expectations from users and service providers, this project will investigate […]
Emulating Software Defined Wireless Networks (2015 – ) Mininet-WiFi is an open source platform to emulate wireless OpenFlow/SDN scenarios allowing high-fidelity experiments that replicate real networking environments. Mininet-WiFi augments the well-known Mininet emulator with virtual wireless stations and access points while keeping the original SDN capabilities and the lightweight virtualization software architecture. More info and […]
Novel Enablers for Cloud Slicing (Nov/2017-Nov/2019). Funded by the 4th EU-BR Collaborative Call. The NECOS project addresses the limitations of current cloud computing infrastructures to respond to the demand of new services, as presented in two use-cases, that will drive the whole execution of the project. The first use-case is Telco service provider focused and […]
DrIVE Associated Team: Distributed Intelligent Vehicular Environment – Enabling ITS through programmable networks (2018-2020) FAPESP Grant number 2017/50361-0 (CNRS/FAPESP, http://www.fapesp.br/11608) DrIVE Objectives Transportation systems are a key component of our society’s critical infrastructure and are expected to experience transformative changes during the current “information age”. A noteworthy example is the automotive industry which has been […]
PSIRP – Publish-subscribe Internet Routing Paradigm. (2008 – 2010) The PSIRP project will redesign the Internet architecture from the pub/sub point of view, taking nothing (not even IP) for granted. PSIRP?s work will focus on the intersection of security, routing, wireless access, architecture design, and network economics, in order to design and develop efficient and […]
Advanced Peering with a Software Defined Knowledge Plane (2014 – 2016). Funded by Ericsson. The main contributions envisioned for this project are the research, design and prototypical validation of a Knowledge Plane suitable for Software Defined Networks (SDN) that shall allow novel networking features and applications. The architecture will be exercised in the context of […]
Prototyping OpenFlow 1.2 and 1.3 software switch, controller, and testing platforms. (02/2011 – 06/2013) In order to strengthen OpenFlow as a future-proof technology, this research project should contribute to the prototype implementation of an OpenFlow version 1.2 protocol stack and switch implementation. In addition, new protocol encapsulations (e.g., Ethernet PBB frame format) and additional OAM […]
ReVir – Redes Virtuais em Internet do Futuro. (06/2011 – 12/2012) O paradigma de redes virtuais é uma proposta para a Internet do Futuro, pois provê mais flexibilidade no núcleo da rede, permitindo que diferentes requisitos de aplicações sejam atendidos. Esse paradigma possibilita que inúmeros elementos de redes virtuais possam co-existir em um único equipamento […]
FIBRE – Future Internet research and experimentation between BRasil and Europe. (10/2011 – 08/2013) The main goal of the FIBRE project is the design, implementation and validation of a shared Future Internet research facility, supporting the joint experimentation of European and Brazilian researchers. In order to achieve this goal the project will carry out four […]
Feasibility and synergy between network functions virtualization and software defined networking (2015 – 2017). Funded by FAPESP. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) have entered the networking scene as a reaction against proprietary closed-box routers and switches that combine routing with additional dedicated functionality. SDN introduces separate software abstractions for both planes. This […]
Mini-CCNx – Experimental Platform for Named Data Networking. (2013 – ) Mini-CCNx is a tool for agile prototyping of Information Centric Networks (ICN) based on the Content-Centric Network (CCN) model. With it, you’ll be able to build several CCN topologies, each with hundreds of nodes, with great agility and flexibility. These topologies can be run […]
RouteFlow – Virtual IP Routing Services over software-defined networks. (2010 – ) The main goal of RouteFlow is to develop an open-source framework for virtual IP routing solutions over commodity hardware implementing the OpenFlow API. RouteFlow aims at a commodity routing architecture that combines the line-rate performance of commercial hardware with the flexibility of open […]
ScaleNet – Converged Network of the Future. (2005 – 2006) ScaleNet aspires to develop a comprehensive, cost-effective, flexible and efficient system concept, which aims at an IP optimized integration of heterogeneous wireless and wire line networks and their access technologies in order to provide attractive multimedia broadband services. Sustainable user benefit is achieved by an […]
