Secure Networking for a Data Center Cloud in Europe

Project: Business Finland project

Project Details


SENDATE-PLANETS addresses the challenges of a secure distributed cloud architecture, which should be able to handle new application scenarios of our digital society, e.g., Industrial Internet and mobile connected objects. Innovative approaches such as Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) in combination with Software Defined Networking (SDN) are the basis for a secure, flexible, low latency, and location-aware distributed data center approach.
