Welcome to the Madeira Project

The goal of Madeira is to provide novel technologies for Network Management Systems, enabling them to facilitate the provision of self managed services and networks in a world of increased network scale, heterogeneity and transience.

Madeira is a consortium of a number of organizations highly competent in many aspects of network, service, and associated management. It is a two year project. The project is structured using work packages. Each work package will produce deliverables and technical recommendations. Core work packages address architecture, platform technology, data modelling. Another work package is a case study that delivers prototype applications to test and demonstrate the concepts developed in the project. Madeira also has a dedicated work package for project management, dissemination and result exploitation.
