MINERVA

Implementing network coding in transport networks to increase availability

Informacio

Description

MINERVA project aims to provide a fault-tolerant protection structure for the GÉANT facility, which provides a highly available backbone network infrastructure for Future Internet applications. It shall do so with minimal recovery time, which can be reached with the continuous replication and combination of data (network coding), while in-network synchronisation of data after a failure occurs is fully avoided.

Innovation

MINERVA envisages achieving its objectives by using an efficient implementation of NC (Network Coding) in SDN (Software-Defined Networking) transport networks. Such implementation is oriented to minimize the number of network coding nodes, as well as the complexity of the coding operations which have to be performed to provide capacity-efficient protection with instantaneous recovery.
