Project Overview

Daidalos logo

The focus of Daidalos was to develop and demonstrate an open architecture based on a common network protocol (Ipv6). The architecture integrates complementary network technologies to provide pervasive and user-centred access to these services, and develops optimized signalling system for communication and management support in these networks.Development of business modelling solutions for the overall Daidalos architecture

The project began in November 2003 and was completed in March 2006.

Project Achievements

Development of business modelling solutions for the overall Daidalos architecture

o   Provision of security expertise to assist the project in making key security and privacy architecture decisions

o   Provision of test beds and testing expertise for the project

o   Development of third party applications and services, to be used to facilitate scenario demonstrations.
