The SIRIS Unit is focusing on two major objectives:
• Operations: The maintenance and evolution of the Distributed Virtualized Infrastructure for Next-generation internet Experimentation (DiVINE) platform. DiVINE is designed to offer a cutting-edge facility to experiment Next Generation Internet (NGI) solutions involving multiple technologies (5G, NFV, MEC, Fog Computing, Cloud) in selected application scenarios like Digital Factory, Digital Agriculture, Digital Buildings, Digital Transportation.
• Asset Valorization: Leveraging on the strong skills in software development of its team of highly experienced engineers, the SIRIS Unit is actively supporting CREATE-NET Research Units by fostering the impact of their most promising Proof-of-Concepts. As an example, our long-term collaboration with major network device manufacturer Cisco Systems laid the foundations for establishing a co-innovation lab whose aim is to develop the control plane for the next generation transport networks.
