Communication networks are still subject to a turbulent further development. Their application is not any more limited to be the infrastructure for telecommunication. More than before, they are a cross cutting function, which should consider any requirements for innovation in a plurality of different disciplines in our information society. This leads to a diverse set of requirements for applications ranging from real-time 3D video for medical applications, over smartphone apps and online games to energy networks (smart grid) and machine-to-machine communication. The growing use of Internet technology as a basis allows supporting different services in one network. However, the provisioning of necessary resources and the control of such diverse services is very limited in today's IP networks. Network as a Service describes a concept to operate (virtual) communication systems of different characteristics on the same infrastructure.
Based on the above described paradigm shift, the following research topics are in my focus:
