Project’s results will be visible through demonstrators targeting tests where the conclusions will be made public in order to disseminate the best practices in the domain. It is also the intention of the project to push the expected results to standardization bodies. The main result of the project will be the optimization of the consumption when delivering and consuming video over IP-based networks. The efforts will be on hardware and software architectures (in particular on emerging paradigms such as SDN and virtualization), protocols, basic technologies in the devices as well as measurement tools with a constant care to reduce the End to End consumption.
The CONVINcE project will address the following areas and technologies: Video encoding/transcoding, adaptive bit streaming, core/metro networks, access networks, CDN, SDN/NFV, routing protocols, fixed and mobile terminals, software best practices & eco-design, power & Quality of Experience measurements.
Other important results will be the optimization of products and routing protocols as well as new architectures supporting the reduction of energy consumption. New and improved QoE & power measurement tools making possible efficient trade-offs between these two parameters will also be proposed.
