New OFELIA Island Deployed at Brazil

Posted on 4 October 2013


The OFELIA Island in Brazil is now deployed. Located at Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU), it is based on L2/L3 switches (DATACOM), NETFPGA switches and also the EDOBRA Switches, a software based switch built on top of OpenWrt that offers an abstract control of wired and wireless access links by using OpenFlow protocol and the MIH (Media Independent Handover) defined by the IEEE 802.21 specification and implemented by ODTONE.

The island deployment was conducted under the EDOBRA (Extending and Deploying OFELIA in Brazil) work package. Currently, the island is running work package experiments that focus on new network architectures that consider aspects such as multicast and mobility in the presence of heterogeneous networks. The Island will become publicly available afterwards.
