PlaNetS ws a new Medea+ project which contributed to the overall goal of eEurope 2005, to provide cost effective broadband access to all European citizens. The broadband access was to based on a converged network unifying the current heterogeneous networks. The subscriber line is expected to be based on DSL and WiMAX technologies. PlaNetS concentrated on implementation and verification of DSLAMs, HomeGateways and MediaServers. The next version of the Internet Protocol IPv6 will play a key role in the converged network. PlaNetS supported an IPv6 end-to-end solution. Requirements for the platforms developed in PlaNetS were be taken from the FP6 Integrated projects MUSE (public network) and MediaNet (private network). PlaNetS builds up on the results of the former Medea+ projects UniAccess and UniLAN. Research group tasks were targeted to the 802.1x authenticator implementation for the DSLAM and a novel dual variant of it.
EthSEC Seguridad en Redes Ethernet Extremo a Extremo. Proyecto coordinado del Plan Nacional de I+D+I (2000-2003) TIC2003-09585-C02-01
EthSEC research work's target was to offer an end-2-end security at the layer 2 level. For this a mechanism to stablish a security association between the two end nodes and a ciphering solution thiruh the use of an FPGA was designed.
