[CLOSED] [HOME_NW_001] EFFICIENT ACTIVATION OF SMALL CELLS IN 5G NETWORKS

In order to face the continuous increase in the cellular data traffic, the envisioned 5G network is foreseen to have a grid of densely deployed small cells to underlay de legacy macro-cellular network. In order to maintain low cost, the small cells are desired to be self-organized and energy efficient. The goal of this internship is to explore the mechanisms to efficiently activate/deactivate the small cells, knowing that the information required (e.g., available energy, number of potential users) to make the best choice is difficult to acquire and therefore limited.

Skills : Networking, at least one programming language (e.g. Python, C++), Knowledge of OpenAirInterface and Game Theory would be a plus

Keywords : 5G networks, cellular networks, ultra-dense networks, small cells.

 

This internship is located in Rennes, France. If interested, please apply at stage.rennes@technicolor.com by sending us your resume and a cover letter with the internship reference in the email subject line.

[CLOSED] [HOME_NW_043] IN-KERNEL VCPE DATA PLANE

An important part of a vCPE or virtual gateway is the data plane implementing the tunnel termination and network address translation (NAT) features. There have been attempts to bypass the kernel completely, implementing this functionality as a userspace application. Nowadays we are seeing the reverse trend where the processing done in kernel space is becoming both more programmable and efficient (thanks to eBPF and XDP). The internship will investigate the possibility to implement the essential vCPE functions using the eBPF and XDP kernel space tools, finally benchmarking the resulting prototype against state of the art implementations

Skills : Networking, C, linux kernel basic knowledge

Keywords : vCPE, Virtual set-top box, remote UI
