ADOPNET (Advanced Technologies for Operated Networks) contributes to the specification of architectures, protocols, control mechanisms, and monitoring mechanisms for the next generation networks. Our goal is to build networks that are flexible, adaptive, energy-efficient, secure, and able to deliver content on a large scale to various types of terminals. ADOPNET, in particular, addresses the convergence of access networks, the combination of radio and optical technologies, and adaptive software-based content delivery networks. ADOPNET research team succeeds to ATNET and REOP teams.

The team has 3 main axis:

Research Axes

The three main research axes of the Adopnet team are : Content Delivery Network Control Network Monitoring Content Delivery The traffic related to multimedia content, and in particular video, has increased significantly over the past few years. This growth is expected to continue with the advent of new video formats (e.g., HEVC, multi-view, and Ultra …
