Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Moby Dick

Acronym: Moby Dick
Main Objective: The project will define, implement, and evaluate an IPv6-based mobility-enabled end-to-end QoS
architecture starting from the current IETF's QoS models, Mobile-IPv6, and AAA framework. A
representative set of interactive and distributed multimedia applications will serve to derive system
requirements for the verification, validation, and demonstration of the Moby Dick architecture in a
testbed comprising UMTS, 802.11 Wireless LANs and Ethernet. In the event of these existing
applications or the underlying architectures not providing what is required, the necessary modification
will be undertaken. The implementations will be tested in a Trans-European trial between
Madrid/Spain and Stuttgart/Germany with exchange students from the SOKRATES-ERASMUS
exchange program.
