The objective of SENDATE-FICUS is to evolve today’s high performance networks into robust, even more efficient, flexible and dynamic, secure, converged communication networks with simple and fast service provisioning and maintenance.

Following topics need to be addressed: Security, networking, data center communication and transport (metro and core networks). SENDATE-FICUS addresses all these fields, since they are necessary for future converged end-to-end communications networks. The approach is to build on successful communications systems developed in recent years or even just under development by Coriant and evolve them into more efficient and secure solutions. This can be achieved by combining Coriant’s broad experience in communication networks with the deep knowledge of specialists from research institutions and smaller companies throughout Germany and Europe.
