Implementation of cross-protect router

The aim of the project is to develop and implement mechanisms of the Cross‐Protect router, the
standard interconnecting device of the Flow‐Aware Networks (FAN). During the first stage, new
methods of realizing admission control and packet scheduling will be proposed and fully analyzed.
Particularly, in the admission control block, the following mechanisms will be developed:
‐ mechanisms to allow fast admission of the streaming flows in the admission control block
‐ mechanisms which enhance the standard service differentiation routing proposed by FAN
‐ mechanisms which limit the maximum number of admitted flows during a certain time interval
‐ new methods of packet scheduling
In the second stage, the basic FAN router will be created. Simultaneously to the implementations, the resilience and security components will also be developed.
Third and final stage of the project will consist the tests of the created FAN router in the laboratory
environment. The test‐bed network will be assembled in which all the routers will be FAN‐based. The
final outcome of the project will be created and fully‐tested Cross‐Protect router with additional
(mentioned above) mechanisms as well as with reliability and security components. Moreover a new
TCP version will be implemented to enhance wireless transmission. The proposed topic is important both from the theoretical and practical perspective. The proposed theoretical solutions may find their place in the congestion control and traffic engineering analysis in the computer networks. On the other hand, they can be truly valuable for the network operators, both in Poland and around the world.  The practical implementation of the Cross‐Protect router will be a significant step forward to advertising the FAN networks to the global market. The conducted simulative analysis and laboratory tests should confirm positive aspects of the proposed mechanisms. The final result of the project may form a main element of the modern computer networks and the Internet. Most of the up‐to‐date analysis show that in the next generation Internet, the transmissions will be served in a flow‐based manner, rather than (as currently) in a packet‐based way. The FAN router is perfectly suited for the future Internet. Additionally, the proposed solution is in accordance with the network neutrality concepts. As such, Cross‐Protect routers will be adequate for the upcoming trends and requirements of the next generation networks.
The obtained results will be groundbreaking for the FAN networks, as they will significantly improve
the performance of the computer networks. Additionally, they will form a starting point for the
further research in this or the other network QoS architectures.
