Management Systems Lab

    Management Systems laboratory covers an infrastructure that allows experimental research on novel solutions for management of the current and future telecommunication networks, such as:

  • Methods for management of Software Defined Networks (SDN); in predefined configuration the laboratory offers Open vSwitch tool that implements OpenFlow protocol in versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and, in part, 1.4 and 1.5;
  • Methods and algorithms for resource management;
  • Methods for network dimensioning and optimization, in conjunction with automatic resource configuration;
  • Analysis and testing of algorithms based on simulation tools (such as Mininet and ns-3 network emulators).

National Institute of Telecommunications

The Management System laboratory at NIT offers:

  • 5x HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 running as virtualization servers
  • 2x HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 with DPDK (multi-processor DPDK servers on which SDN/Open Flow controllers can be installed or e.g. open software for SDN switches as Open vSwitch)
  • 1x Pica8 P-3297 (SDN/OpenFlow switch)
  • 1x QuantaMesh BMS T1048-LB9 (bare metal switch enabling the installation of open source operating system)
  • 4x Wyse 7020 terminals (local access only)
