Socially-aware Management of New Overlay Application Traffic with Energy Efficiency in the Internet

SmartenIT Overview
Internet tendency to support Clouds and their overlay applications Coherent and integrated control in underlying heterogeneous networks Tighter integration of network management and overlay service functionality


Key Objectives
Social-awareness by traffic characterization based on network-related metrics and social patterns Energy-efficiency with respect to both end-user devices and underlying networking infrastructure Incentive-compatibility in network management for content providers, overlay providers, network providers, and end-users Energy-aware Traffic Management Addressing energy efficient computation in the Cloud Energy consumption on mobile end-user

Inter-Cloud Communication Communication between Cloud operators Where applications demand for dedicated traffic quality levels
OTT Provider
