Services and Architectures for Advanced Networks - SARA
Head: Khalil DRIRA Secretary: Justine PRANEUF
The team SARA is one of the teams of the research theme Networks and Communications.
SARA research team’s work addresses new generation networks and communicating systems and their applications. Our research studies address the design, the planning, the deployment management, and the monitoring.
Our contributions include the development of methods, models and tools as well as the design and implementation of architectures, protocols and services. In particular, our research work focuses on analysis, performance evaluation, control and prototyping of software and communication platforms.
The research challenges mainly include mastering:
- Modeling and controlling scalable dynamic systems
- Designing systems with strong requirements (QoS, security) and highly constrained (energy, resources)
- Handling continuity of services and their quality in mobile networks
- Elaborating dynamic and autonomous service-oriented and components-based software architectures
