Project: Generic Transport in Context-Aware Networks

Acronym: GEN-CAN
Main Objective:
The GEN-CAN project will implement a new architecture to efficiently support context-aware multi-party sessions in the NGNs, through generic transport and network coding concepts to enhance the information transfer in a mobility environment. The issues to be addressed in the design of the new architecture include the following (we assume the availability of context information and mainly steer our focus on four important correlative sub-areas):
(1) Context-Aware Network Resource Provisioning,
(2) Intelligent Context-Based Network Selection in the heterogeneous networks environment, (3) Support of Network Coding, (4) Context-Aided Seamless Mobility.
