I just noticed that the European FP7 4WARD project site is now up and running. In short,
4WARD is a project in the European 7th Framework Program Call 1 and partly funded by EU. It belongs to Objective ICT-2007-1.1 “Network of the Future” and started January 2008, with a first phase of 2 Years. The total size is 23.2 million euro corresponding to approximately 180 person-years.
4WARD has six work packages, and the one that interests me most is obviously the third one – Network Virtualisation (VNet). An overview of the project can be found here.
Viva la “network virtualization“.
