Network virtualization research at Synchromedia is aimed at creating new models providing a logical software-based view of the underlying hardware and software networking resources (switches, routers, etc.).

This results in an intelligent abstraction that makes it easy to deploy and manage network services and resources. We are pioneering the NFV (Network Function Virtualization) concept and very active in SDN (Software-Defined Networking) solutions, especially with respect to intra and inter-data center networks.

Sample projects carried out by Synchromedia in this field include UCLP (CANARIE), PanLab 1 (EU’s FP6 Framework), PabLab 2 (EU’s FP7 Framework), Mantychore (EU’s FP7 Framework), GreenStar Network (CANARIE) and V-WAN hypervisor (Ciena).
