Outline of the presentation
  • Project Overview
  • Motivation
  • Relations to exist COST Actions
  • Action area of responsibility
  • Key objectives
  • Key results/benefits
  • Scientific Programme
  • Organization
  • Participants

Project Overview
  • Type and Identification EU COST Action 290
  • Source of funding European Commission
  • Duration June, 2004 - June, 2008
  • Website http//

  • Spectacular growing of mobile communications
  • The networks increase and offer new services
  • New services pose new requirements to network
    design and construction issues
  • To implement new services, a set of novel
    network architectures, protocols and
    traffic-related mechanisms have to be invented

  • Value-added and revenue-expected new services for
    the mobile network will be Internet access and IP
    multimedia applications
  • For the new applications certain QoS
    requirements need to be provided
  • No doubt, QoS for Internet applications will be
    heavily demanded by the end-users
  • Design, development and implementation of
    QoS-capable mobile networks is of paramount

Relations to exist COST Actions
  • COST 273 Towards Broadband Multimedia
  • running until May 2005
  • is working on the radio aspects of future mobile
    broadband systems
  • major emphasis is given to radio propagation
    aspects, antenna technologies and radio network
    aspects of future wireless broadband networks

Relations to exist COST Actions
  • COST 279 Analysis and Design of Advanced
    Multiservice Networks supporting Mobility,
    Multimedia and Internetworking
  • running until June 2005
  • is contributing to the development and
    application of new and better analytical
    techniques for the analysis, design and control
    of advanced multiservice networks supporting
    mobility, multimedia and interworking

Relations to exist COST Actions
  • COST 285 Modeling and Simulation Tools for
    Research in Emerging Multi-service
  • running until March 2007
  • is aimed at developing new modeling and
    simulation tools for research in emerging
    multi-service telecommunications networks in the
    areas of model performance improvement, air and
    network interfaces for 3G and 4G mobile radio
    systems and multilayer traffic modeling and

Action area of responsibility
  • Is intend to cover a considerable area of
    research not dealt with by mentioned Actions
  • Moreover, is intend to fill the gap between
    Actions 273 279
  • Traffic and QoS Management in Wireless
    Multimedia Networks, i.e. we would carry out a
    networking Action

Key objectives
  • Evolve, develop and investigate new approaches,
    techniques, methods, models, strategies and tools
  • Analysis, design, control and evaluation of
    future advanced
  • Multiservice Wireless Networks (MWNs)
  • Supporting user mobility, multimedia
    applications, and internetworking
  • Special attention must be given to QoS and
    related aspects in
  • Both access networks and core networks
  • In the presence of mixed multimedia traffic
  • To accomplish these tasks new analytical tools,
    software implementations and prototypes have to
    be invented

Key results/benefits
  • Increase of the knowledge on the MWNs and
    specifically on traffic nature and behavior and
    its impact on network architecture, performance
    and planning
  • Usage of the Pan-European infrastructure of the
    COST Action to execute and to perform
    international test beds and, therefore, to
    produce valuable outcome
  • Contributions to standardization bodies on the
    basis of the obtained achievements by creating
    inputs leading to well supported decisions
  • Coordination of the research relations, and
    foster research networking, between European
    participating organizations and research groups
    being active in the field

Scientific Program
  • Important broad research tasks to be addressed
  • the analysis of the impact of multi-class traffic
    on network design and dimensioning
  • the definition of techniques to provide adequate
    QoS differentiation among traffic classes
  • the identification of new network planning
    criteria to cope with the integration of
    heterogeneous traffic flows
  • the definition of new services able to provide
    the requested multimedia contents to users on the
