Project Description

The aim of the SASER (Safe and Secure European routing) is to develop solutions for secure and scalable communication network infrastructures achieving cost-efficient, energy-efficient, reliable and stable routing.
TUM activities focus on work packages one and two.  As part of work package one TUM develops a sensor and analysis platform for optical networks that can be used for anomaly detection. In work package two the analysis platform is used to get insights into the interplay of the different layers in order to detect flows with inadequate performance resulting in a bad quality of service for end users.
