Orchestration and Reconfiguration Control Architecture


Project overview

ORCA offers experimentation facilities to promote wireless innovation in several market segments, including manufacturing, automotive industry, healthcare, ambient assisted living, public events, home automation, and utilities.

Role of IS-Wireless

IS-Wireless was the winner of the ORCA 2nd Open Call with the project entitled “multiRATsched: The extension of multi-criteria LTE MAC scheduler for multiple RAT environment”. In this project we are delivering and testing the solution for cooperation between multi RAT technologies (LTE, WiFi) using the LWA technique. The key focus is on effective operation of multi-RAT scheduler with the RAN-controller developed by IS-Wireless. IS-Wireless develops multi-RAT scheduler and adjusts it to the needs of testbed (e.g. FAPI), RAN-controller prototype is integrated with ns3 to enable control of the WiFi offloading. The approach based on the QoS and QoE feedback to the scheduler is compared and evaluated for suitability.
