E. Borcoci, D. Negru, and C. Timmerer, "A Novel Architecture for Multimedia Distribution based on Content-Aware Networking", accepted for publication at the 3rd International Conference on Communication Theory, Reliability, and Quality of Service (CTRQ 2010), Athens/Glyfada, Greec, June 13-19, 2010.

Abstract: This paper proposes a novel virtual Content-Aware Network (CAN) layer as a part of a full layered architecture, focused, but not limited to, on multimedia distribution with Quality of Services (QoS) assurance. The overall system is based on a flexible cooperation between providers, operators and end-users, enabling users to access the offered multimedia services in various contexts and also to become private content providers. The paper introduces the main concepts and architecture for the main virtual network layer (i.e., CAN), exposing its role and interfaces among overall system layers. This work is a part of the starting effort inside of a new European FP7 ICT research project, ALICANTE.
