Expected Impact

The SPARC project through its numerous realisations will:

  • Overcome structural limitations of the current Internet architecture resulting from an increasingly larger set of applications and of devices and edge networks to be supported
  • Enable dynamic and efficient support of various traffic patterns for synchronism,   end-to-end quality, location independence, mobility and future service architectures
  • Contribute to new concepts for flexible and cognitive network management and operation frameworks for dynamic, ad-hoc and optimised resource allocation and control, administration with accounting that ensures both a fair return-on-investment and expansion of usage, differentiated performance levels that can be accurately monitored, fault-tolerance and robustness associated with real-time trouble shooting capabilities
  • Participate and realise standardisation of the OpenFlow protocol from a European perspective
