Outcomes

The practical outcome of MOSAICO will consist in a proof-of-concept demonstrator that will allow a dynamic deployment of micro-services, at different layers by a multi-layer orchestrator, to offer a global service ensuring high levels of QoS, security and reliability for one of the targeted use-cases. More precisely, the outputs of the project will be:
 
  1. First and foremost, the scientific advancement of knowledge that will be carried out by all partners who, through high-level publications, will enable the scientific community related to Network Virtualization, Network and Service Management, and Security to benefit from the scientific results of the project;
  2. The production of micro-services that aim at delivering contents given the low-latency requirements and at securing and monitoring the network so as to avoid any delay;
  3. Novel multi-layer orchestration algorithms for selecting the best placement, technology and service chaining so as to deploy the necessary micro-services according to the service description and requirements; d) Some extensions of an open-source orchestrator which include the multi-layer capacity and the novel algorithms, and the possible contributions to the related open-source community;
  4. The implementation and evaluation of the whole solution for a specific use-case. Modules will be designed, implemented and evaluated in conditions as close as possible to a real deployment (e.g. use of P4- based hardware, public open-source orchestrator, Montimage monitoring platform).

Abstract :
The meeting #5 took place Online on March 11, 2021. In the meeting, the consortium discussed about the deliverable D1.1 and how to use it to submit a survey about low-latency services and orchestration. The state of the art in orcherstration is made and will help to make mathematical models in a NFV context with microservices environment and with end-to-end latency as a constraint. A discussion about QoS in relationship with L4S brought several questions about WebRTC for Cloud Gaming and competition between BBR (or GCC) flows and TCP Prague.
A reflexion about common tools for MOSAICO leds us to decide to centralize each partner's code into GitLab handled by Loria and to use the Cybersec platform handled y the UTT with the help of Montimages' Monitoring Tool (MMT)
which will soon be available in Open Source.

Kick-off Meeting 2/12/2019 Chatillon Kick-off Meeting report #1
Abstract :
The Kick-off Meeting  took place at Orange Labs Chatillon, in France on March  02/12/2019. The aim of the Kick-off of the MOSAICO project is for the contributing members of the project to get to know each other and to be at the level on the objectives and tasks of the project. Orange presented the overall context and objectives of the project. Cutting and organizing tasks were then introduced.

Communication tools (through the setting up of messaging for project members and the creation of a website) and the operation of the project were also discussed. As for work tools It was decided to draft the Latex deliverables. Loria will set up a ShareLatex project for the MOSAICO project. It is also planned to have a GitLab for document sharing. Loria will set up a GitLab for MOSAICO.

#1 D1.1 Low-latency: applications, network solutions,attacks and optimisation techniques 01/06/21 Not provided
Abstract: The MOSAICO project aims at defining networking solutions for the secure and efficient deliveryof low-latency applications, such as cloud gaming, cloud robotics, drone piloting, etc.. This first deliverable presents a survey and our analysis of all the key topics addressed by the project as well as a first selection of the candidate technologies. First, the different classes of low-latency applications are described, mainly focusing on their main characteristics and their latency considerations. The sources of latency for delivering a service from the server to the end-clients are presented, highlighting the network ones, which we will deeply investigate and improve subsequently. To that aim, the deliverable introduces the main current network solutions for addressing the latency issue: queue management and control congestion algorithms, and Network Virtualisation Function (NFV) orchestration for deploying network both monolithic and micro services. To ensure the right delivery of low-latency applications, the main threats which could have an impact on latency are presented. Finally, the two main technologies we advocate in the project for implementing and deploying microservices ensuring the secure and efficient delivery of low-latency services are presented: OpenNetVM, a microservice technology, and P4 (Programming Protocol-Independent Packet Processor), a network data plane programming solution.
