|The world is going towards autonomic equipment. The Authone project aims at developing the autonomic paradigm in home networks with the goal of creating a competitive technological edge for European players in the domain of home networking.
The main objective of Authone is to design a very innovative home network communication architecture with autonomous components allowing self-managing properties necessary for future home and pervasive scenarios. This new architecture will be composed of 4 planes (data, control, management and knowledge planes) allowing the system to self-configure, self-secure and self-monitor in real time so that the home-network is always optimised depending on the knowledge plane information. The project will develop this key concept of knowledge plane for driving home-networks in an autonomic way.Three main technical objectives will be addressed:
The Authone project shall deliver:
The consortium partners represent a large amount of expertise (telecom operators, manufactures, research laboratories, universities and service providers) needed to tackle the project objectives.
