NetFPGA project is a line-rate, flexible, and open platform for research, and classroom experimentation.
NaaS project aka "Network-as-a-Service" allows tenants to customise the service that they receive from the network and deploy custom routing protocols, as well as more sophisticated mechanisms. By modifying the content of packets on-path, they can efficiently implement advanced, application-specific network services, such as in-network data aggregation and smart caching.
SSICLOPS project aka "Scalable and Secure Infrastructures for Cloud Operations" focuses on techniques for the management of federated private cloud infrastructures, in particular cloud networking techniques within software-defined data centres and across wide-area networks.
