Winternet - A Swedish Initiative for Advanced Internet Research

Winternet is a research programme aiming to enhance the Internet infrastructure to better accommodate todays requirements. Examples of the requirements are commercial (how to charge for a service), mobility (both for terminals and services), network scalability and ease of use (both for users and operators).

The programme has three research areas addressing key research issues in the evolution of the Internet infrastructure:

  • Routing architectures, which addresses scalability problems with today's routing and routers,
  • Service architectures and application overlays, which aims for an evolved overall Internet architecture, including a service architecture for the deployment and management of application services, and
  • Self-managed networks and terminals, which aims at simplifying and automating configuration and management for both users and network operators.

Winternet is a collaboration between SICS, Uppsala University, Luleň University of Technology and the Royal Institute of Technology. Winternet is a three year programme funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research.

The Winternet project proposal is avaliable in PDF format.
