we do things differently
TCP/IP and today’s increasingly complex networking approaches cannot satisfy the increasing demands for security, mobility, scalability or quality of service . . . RINA is a network architecture based on fundamentals – how networks should be implemented with over US$9 million invested to-date, with commercial grade code now emerging for the US$88bn infrastructure market
TRIA Network Systems is working with Ciena to support its international ecosystem for the Self-Optimizing-Fabric (SOF) research under the ENCQOR 5G public-private partnership.
The purpose of this project is to create the ENCQOR Distributed Fabric (EDF) which will serve as a discovery and verification testbed for SOF. EDF is a distributed fabric that stitches multiple physical data centers (located at various ENCQOR IDCs and research labs) in a logically distributed data center.
ENCQOR (Evolution of Networked Services Through a Corridor in Québec and Ontario for Research and Innovation) is comprised of corporate partners Ciena, IBM, Ericsson, Thales and CGI.
TRIA Network Systems is creating networking products based on a new approach to defining and managing computer networks and new and improved ways for applications to use them.
ARCFIRE was a project with 6 partners: Ericsson, i2CAT, Nextworks, Telefonica, iMinds and Boston University; whose main goal is to experimentally demonstrate the RINA benefits at large scale running 4 big experiments on the FIRE+ experimental facilities: i) Management of multi-layer converged service provider networks; ii) Deploying resilient, virtualised services over heterogeneous physical media; iii) End-to-end service provisioning across multiple network service providers and iv) Studying the effects of (Distributed) Denial of Services (D)DoS attacks inside and over RINA networks.
PRISTINE was a project whose main goal was to explore the programmability aspects of RINA to implement innovative policies for congestion control, resource allocation, routing, security and network management.
PRISTINE had 15 partners in the project: WIT-TSSG, i2CAT, Nextworks, Telefonica I+D, Thales, Nexedi, BISDN, Atos, University of Oslo, Juniper Networks, Brno University, IMT-TSP, CREATE-NET, iMinds and UPC;
IRATI was a project whose main goal was to produce an open source RINA implementation for the Linux OS on top of Ethernet. FP7 IRATI has already open-sourced the first release of the RINA implementation, called as the project “IRATI”.
The project had 5 partners: i2CAT, Nextworks, iMinds, Interoute and Boston University
