Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Seminar on Software-Defined Networks

on 05-04-2018

... Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology augmented by Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are radically changing telecommunication networks. SDN separates the control functions from the underlying physical network by decoupling the control and data planes thereby offering improved programmability, ease of deployment, management, reduced costs, better scalability, availability, flexibility and fine‐grain control of traffic. NFV nicely complements SDN by virtualizing network services to reduce the dependency on underlying hardware which aids efficient resource management.

This seminar aims at being an excellent opportunity for some prominent players in the IT and Telco arena, including academia, discuss their current view on the emerging SDN/NFV technologies. At the end of this event, we aim to specify a common set of global goals to achieve with these new technologies to empower the current networking infrastructure and prepare it for the upcoming paradigms, such as Multi-Access Edge Computing / Internet of Things.

The seminar is open to all interested in this topic (students, researchers, professionals). Due to limitations on the participants number a pre- registration is required.

Location: ISCTE-IUL, Auditorium B203 (building II)
Date: 5th April 2018 (from 14h30 to 17h45)

IT was present at FISTA 2018 at ISCTE

on 27-03-2018

... The Forum of ISCTE-IUL School of Technology and Architecture is an annual event that takes place at ISCTE-IUL, Lisbon. The event brings the corporate world to the university. FISTA 2018 took place on 27th and 28th February, featuring keynote talks, workshops, and putting the students in contact with national and international companies.

IT was present at FISTA 2018 at ISCTE-IUL with a stand showcasing research taking place at the branch of IT at ISCTE-IUL (IT-IUL) and offering a workshop on “Tailored
Environments and Serious Game for Physiotherapy” delivered by Octavian Postolache and other collaborators. That workshop presented part of the results and demos associated with tailored environments for physical rehabilitation, using information and communication technologies (ICTs) to monitor physiotherapy exercises.
