FP7 ICT 4WARD

The need for structural changes in the Internet has become increasingly evident. ICT 4WARD was a project which attempted to combine a set of radical architectural approaches building on a strong mobile and wireless background to design inter-operable and complementary families of network architectures
With the absence of adequate facilities to design, optimize and interoperate new networks currently forces a convergence to an architecture that is suboptimal for many applications and that cannot support innovations within itself, the Internet. 4WARD made an attempt to overcome this impasse through a set of radical architectural approaches.

My Role: In charge of TSSG scientific and technical aspects in the project, TSSG Finance Manager, TSSG Staff Manager (7 research staff).

The CBA prototype consists of a fully functional componentised IPv4 network stack and the ancillary supporting infrastructure. The network stack is implemented as a set of software components. A component is a well-defined unit such as a protocol e.g. TCP is a single component. These components are then deployed as an OSGi based application within an application server (Spring DM Server).

FP7 ICT Perimeter

The goal of the ICT Perimeter project is to establish the new paradigm of user-centric strategies for advanced networking. Putting the users at the centre rather than the operator enables users to finely control their identity and preferences (e.g. cost, security, network selection). This information is used to ensure the mobile user is ‘Always Best Connected’ (ABC) in multiple-access multiple-operator networks of the Future Internet. My role on the project was to effectively validate and demonstrate the results of the PERIMETER project, helping to verify the innovative aspects of the project in a suitable, and state of the art testbed demonstration facility.

My Role: In charge of TSSG scientific and technical aspects in the project, TSSG Finance Manager, TSSG Staff Manager (3 research staff).

The goal of the IST ENABLE project was to research, develop, test, integrate and evaluate mechanisms and technologies for the deployment of efficient and operational mobility as a service in large scale IPv6 network environments, taking into account also the transition scenario from IPv4. During the IST ENABLE project I was work package leader of WP6. My role was to facilitate the integration of heterogeneous access infrastructures to deliver this ubiquitous mobility in an efficient and cost-effective way and to participate in the research for the evolution towards a fully mobile Internet.

IST Daidalos I & IST Daidalos II

The focus of the IST Daidalos project was to develop and demonstrate an open architecture based on a common network protocol (IPv6). The architecture integrates complementary network technologies to provide pervasive and user-centred access to these services, and develops optimized signalling system for communication and management support in these networks. My role was to provide security research to assist the project in making key security and privacy architecture decisions and the provision of testing expertise for the project.

Autonomic Communications

FP7 ICT Autonomic Internet

The purpose of ICT AutoI was to create a communication resource overlay with autonomic characteristics for the purposes of fast and guaranteed service delivery.
To this end, AutoI introduced a Virtualisation of network resources and Policy-Based Management technique to describe and control the internal logic of the services, utilising Ontology-based information and data models to facilitate the Internet service deployment in terms of programmable networks facilities.

Model Based Translator - MBT
The Model-based Translator (MBT) is a package that translates commands and messages from a technology independent "network" language to device specific commands and configurations. It is capable of converting device specific monitoring messages into a technology independent language. The MBT uses a detailed information model of communications networks with model-to-text translations templates to carry out the translations. It is intended for use by network management software to manage heterogeneous networking equipment and services without understanding the associated data models. It supports both vCPI and ANPI templates.

Starting out on my own

In 2002 I started a new venture called SecureLeon which attempted to create in software a single 3G Security lawful intercept network element to administer, interface and integrate lawful interception in 3G controlling elements in a packet data network for mobile wireless vendors.

Motorola

I started with Motorola in Cork in 1996, where I worked in the Networks Sector on the very old but very stable mobile switching center (MSC) EMX2500 which was used across the world in mobile analogue (AMPS) and mobile digital (CDMA) deployments. During this time I supported the software transition of core modules written in the assembler software language, which was using a very old Real-Time operating system, to a re-architected system based on a new real-time operating system implemented in the C software language. These modules hosted the Mobile to Mobile and Land to Mobile calls.

I followed this with work on the redesign of the billing system within the EMX2500. Had a great time in the field (Argentina) as part of a team rollng out all these features for the very first time .

In 1999 I moved to Illinois (well I'll always say Chicago) and worked in Motorola Arlington Heights for the Aspira project, which was the first software system to carry out mobile VoIP calls over both CDMA and GSM systems towards (Microsoft) Netmeeting on the PC desktop.

During 2000 I was involved the software product development of SIP into the Motorola Aspira suite, which was used for providing input towards TS 24.228: “3rd Generation Partnership Project; Technical Specification Group Core Network; Signalling flows for the IP multimedia call control based on SIP and SDP.

In 2001, GPRS had gotten it's debut, but there were issues with SGSN deployments in Europe and so I returned to Motorola Cork and worked on load balancing of core network SGSN and the implementation of lawful interception techniques.
