3 Wireless Research in Ireland Public Distribution Alan Research group overview  Headcount –2 PIs (Prof Huw Oliver & Prof Ger Parr) –11 Researchers (6 PhD & 5 MSc) –6 students (4 PhD, 2 MSc) –Embark  Funding –€1.6M since 2001 (founded with IDA Capability Grant & RTI) –€1.64M for (Marie Curie & RTI) –6’th FP Calls 4&5 under review/development  Group structure –Manager, Steering Group, report to country/R&D manager & ER. –Dublin: sponsored PhDs with UCD, DCU & TCD –Athlone: Design unit collaboration & anchor

4 Wireless Research in Ireland Public Distribution Alan MNC Research Challenges Local competence Existence –previous attempts in Ireland (Broadcom & MLE) –corporate radio research –design unit –unique discipline Funding

5 Wireless Research in Ireland Public Distribution Alan Key Research Areas  Business Focus –To identify and develop technology components for Network Management systems to support the Ericsson Network Element & Network Management product portfolio.  Perspective –Massively distributed large scale adaptive networks, semantically rich data management techniques and machine learning applications which support heterogeneity and interoperability.  Scope of Activities –Evaluations, prototypes, demos, benchmarking, IPR, Innovations & Publications  Specific Interest –Peer to Peer and GRID techniques for automatically distributing computational power and data storage (4 years internal) –Policies and Ontologies for dynamic data representations (2 years internal) –Machine learning techniques to automatically correlate and discover patterns of network event data for CM. (New & Leveraged)

6 Wireless Research in Ireland Public Distribution Alan Distributed Computing  Challenges –Competence, applicability to telecoms, switching costs  Techniques –P2P: Configuration of dynamic networks (Madeira project) –GRID: To develop a scalable architecture for a distributed O&M data management system. (sponsored PhD)  Milestones –Eureka/Celtic project, ranked papers, Internships, Marie Curie  Industrial Usage –P2P Media & distribution sectors (content provision & operators) –GRID: application design, info storage, task computing  Leverage points in Ireland –TSSG, UCD, UU –Digital Hub, ?

7 Wireless Research in Ireland Public Distribution Alan Knowledge Engineering  Techniques –Data mining to extract patterns/events for CM –Policies for specifing system behavior –Ontologies for defining relationships  Challenges –Semantic interoperability, system modelling, switching costs, competence  Industrial Usage –Telecom application design, value added services for operators  Leverage points in Ireland –UU, TCD, UPC-Barcelona, EPFL- Switzerland –DERI ? OSS MIB
