Socially-aware Management of New Overlay Application Traffic combined with Energy Efficiency in the Internet
The tighter integration of network management, overlay service functionality, and overlay application knowledge, as for instance of Online Social Networks and Quality-of-Experience metrics, can lead to cross-layer optimization of network operations. Therefore, SmartenIT considers this as the promising approach to offer a new business potential in operational perspectives for all stakeholders involved, including cloud providers, Internet Service Providers, telecommunication providers, overlay providers, and application providers.
SmartenIT results have been summarized in two separate White Papers, which outline and discuss the major findings of SmartenIT from an operator-focus view (Traffic Distribution over Time and Space - An Operator Focused Approach in Inter Cloud Scenarios) and from an end-user-focused view (From the Cloud to the Edge - QoE, Social Awareness, and Energy Efficiency in User-owned Nano Data Centers).
