Research Area: Networked Computing System (NetCS) focusing on “Dynamic & Resource-aware Composition of Media-centric Services employing Programmable/Virtualized Computing/Networking Resources”

Software-Defined networking (SDN) and Cloud computing for Future Internet testbed

  • Resource-aware service composition framework (i.e., modeling, monitoring, and adaptation) employing heterogeneous computing/networking resources for service-centric Future
  • Internet testbed.
  • Dynamic provisioning for novel SDN-supported services with virtualized programmable networking resources (e.g., high-performance lambdas, opportunistic wireless cognitive/DTN
  • connections, …).
  • Balanced integration of computing and networking resources in heterogeneous SmartX nodes.

Smart media-centric services employing heterogeneous SmartX nodes

  • Flexible lifecycle management for service composition that interacts between immersive media services and computing/networking resources.
  • Centralized coordination of distributed SmartX nodes for multi-party visual sharing collaboration environment.
  • Mobile & content-centric media services leveraging opportunistic P2P for the spatial-temporal domain efficiency.
  • Reliable service creation with heterogeneous computing/networking for real-time/low-latency CPS (cyber physical systems) applications.

Others

  • Advanced collaboration environment: SMeet scalable and interactive collaboration framework; Access Grid with networked tiled display.
  • Flexible media service protocols & middleware: Flexible media-based service networking with home network (UPnP) middleware.
  • Immersive and interactive media contents generation and delivery: Integrated media content generation; Interactive media delivery & rendering; Haptic-based multi-party interaction; Networked games & virtual environments.
  • Resilient and synchronized media distribution: Synchronized/Resilient multicast streaming, Prioritized packetization by layered RPI, Scalable network-coded (layered) multicast streaming, Reliable and secure media distribution, and Distributed media streaming via P2P/overlay multicasting.
  • Dynamic media delivery for graceful degradation: Dynamic network adaptation with layered prioritization, rate/flow control, source-network coordinated error control, and incorporation of IETF’s TCP-friendly end-to-end congestion control.
  • Universal media access framework with security and intellectual property management (watermarking and encryption), Interactive multimedia signal processing for coding efficiency and pre/post-processing: Video object segmentation, motion estimation and interpolation, and pre/post-filtering schemes in either original or compressed domain.
