New report available! Synthesis of deployment results (Deliverable 4.6)

News date: 
Wed, 2012-10-17

The UniverSelf project is proud to announce the final release of the technical report on Synthesis of deployment results:

Deliverable 4.6: Synthesis of deployment results - Realease 1

The report can be accessed under the Dissemination/Technical Reports section, or directly at the following link: http://www.univerself-project.eu/technical-reports


This deliverable presents the synthesis of intermediate deployment results.

Making the deployment assessment of our solutions is not obvious. Lot of facets need to be considered, including implementation maturity, performance or assessing how our solutions could be deployed in (quasi-) real networks. Thus, this deliverable is describing our understanding on how to realise the deployment assessment of the project developments. We identify a first list of criteria based on ISO/IEC 9126-1 in order to structure and help to guide this assessment.

The implementation of UniverSelf solutions is based the use case lifecycle which follows the development of a solution from its conception up to its final and complete validation. Then, the solutions have different levels of implementation maturity depending on their relative progress, complexity and understanding. Some solutions are implemented at the level of a mechanism (e.g. the methods developed and evaluated in WP3), based on simulations and thus not yet fully integrated in a UMF-compliant management system. Other solutions are implemented according to the UMF release 2 specifications, referring to solution composed of UMF core functions and NEMs (e.g. in the WP2 and WP3), based on emulation and/or test-bed. Results are then described for each use case depending on their implementation level. They are based on available, implemented and tested solutions.

For each use case, solutions are presented including the solved problems and the related objectives. An evaluation is fulfilled to show what the solution benefits are, focusing on performance, novelty and/or added-value. Then a first (or intermediate) deployment assessment is done according to the identified list of criteria.

In the last section, we start to discuss the deployment assessment of UMF as a framework. An illustration of how to map the ensemble of UMF core functions and NEMs over a 3GPP-LTE system is described (i.e. a technology-specific instantiation exercise).

Lot of results are already part of this deliverable: they cover various problems and network technologies. As part of the project progress, higher implementation level will be available in the next months, beginning with the Year 2 review demonstrations (November 2012). The consolidation of the deployment results will be done in the next release of the deliverable, D4.12 (June 2013).
