WP8 Managed Wireless
|WP Title:||Managed Wireless for Smart Infrastructure|
|Contributors:||Eye Networks AS, CISC, HIOA, Wolffia, SMARTIO, TELENOR ASA, UiO|
The Managed Wireless for Smart Infrastructure use case is seen as an example of smart infrastructure developments. While current infrastructures are limited in terms of (remote) configurability and service differentiation, smart infrastructures will use a service oriented view. This is a novel view where services, devices and systems will interconnect to provide added value or functionality, e.g. trusted connections in case of medical data, or secure and reliable communications in case of an alarm. Wireless communication has opened up a whole new dimension, with e.g. IoT connectivity for cooperating cyber physical systems. We assume that there are already numerous different wireless sensors and actuator networks (“legacy networks”) from different providers and different administrative domains, which have to be connected to each other in order to provide added value and new services and applications.
However, these networks and systems are generally not homogenous and hardly are able to interact with each other. The main objective of this work package is to enhance the concept of interconnected bubbles significantly, by introducing interoperability, security/privacy functionality, remote management, and dedicated service-quality. This will include the following concrete objectives: Move from homogeneous controlled environments to heterogeneous environments with secured interaction between networks.
- Manage the wireless bubbles to make them secure and trustable
- Extend and connect Bubbles and integrate distributed Bubbles into the Cloud
- Extend the established multi-domain high-level architecture concerning security, trustability and cloud integration • Include new domains such as Health and Elderly Home (besides commercial/public buildings)
- Go the last mile to market implementation

Tasks in WP08
T8.1 Managed Wireless for Smart Infrastructures
- Objective: 1. Industrial framework Specification: This task will provide an industrial framework for comprehensive management and control across bubbles and thus across heterogeneous infrastructures.
- Work to exploit the existing software framework for network management and design that the lead partner EyeSaaS develops. This framework, extended to the bubbles, will have to interact and integrate work from the rest of the Tasks below.
- Scale up the concept of the home bubble to become the basis for Smart Infrastructures in Home and Buildings.
- Work to extend the bubbles concept to the more general setup of Smart Infrastructures for Home and Building. This task will be the main bridge to the other Use Cases where home or building services and infrastructures are being developed. We will work to distil from the work of the other partners key requirements for innovation of the bubble concept so to handle the needs of the respective UC2.x.
- Expected results: roadmap for managed wireless (M07), demonstration of managed wireless (M34)
T8.2 Service enabling through SW routing
- Objective: This task will provide the routing extensions needed to enable upcoming services, e.g. voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) or specific IoT routing. Adaptable network slicing or application-specific routing are two expressions of functionality being required for service quality of future services. The task will also handle the extension of Bubbles to the Cloud. The task contains
- Work on adopting the techniques of distributed cloud computing that are developed in the Technology Line WPs in the bubble concept
- Use the network slicing concept and cloud technologies developed in the “adaptable network slicing” building block to separate and create different bubbles for different domains and applications. A network slice shall encompass different access technologies like WLAN, LTE, future access technologies, etc.
- Adopting techniques from the area of software-defined networking (SDN) to the bubble concept. This will allow to remotely and independently configure bubbles wrt. their intended use, e.g., some privacy restrictions need to be enabled on a health bubble, whereas other safety restrictions apply to a car bubble or a home security bubble. EyeSaaS, the lead of this WP, has particular knowledge in this area.
- Implement secure wireless confined transmission inside the bubble. Work will be carried in collaboration with the Technology Line WPs so to adopt an energy efficient technology. We will also work on security mechanisms to provide confidentiality of the data from the outside of the bubble.
- Open access for basic information (BasicInternet). Work out the specifications and functional requirements for bubbles to provide open and basic information access. Such basic access could be used by guest systems like IoT devices that need limited connection to their home vendor system to, e.g., configure or transmit technical status, which is usually used for maintenance or diagnostics purposes.
- Expected results:
T8.3 Pilot implementations of novel services
- Objective: This task will focus on market-entry of novel services through the envisaged managed wireless access. The task will include
- A cloud platform for remote management of Wifi
- Protocols for remote access of information, usually kept behind the firewall
- Pilot the open access to basic information (BasicInternet)
- Experiences from Pilots and scalability for world-wide applicability
- Expected results:
