Currently, network environments are controlled manually or at a certain level of automation and are not able to provide network resources as a service. The emerging trend of Future Internet paradigms is to abstract and virtualize the network resources and functionalities, and to expose this virtualized resources and operations via interfaces providing a(More)
Cloud technologies can nowadays be considered as commodities. The possibility of getting access to storage, computing and networking virtual resources empowers any business that needs dynamic IT capabilities. The Cloud Management Broker (CMB) plays a crucial role to handle heterogeneous virtualized cloud resources in order to offer a unique set of(More)
This paper presents a reference architecture and a control scheme for the aggregation and management of electric vehicle (EV) load at medium voltage level. The focus is put on the problem of EV load reprofiling, aimed at the procurement of active demand (AD) services to interested grid/market actors. The proposed approach achieves AD product composition(More)
In this paper a rationale for the deployment of Future Internet based applications in the field of Electric Vehicles (EVs) smart charging is presented. The focus is on the Connected Device Interface (CDI) Generic Enabler (GE) and the Network Information and Controller (NetIC) GE, which are recognized to have a potential impact on the charging control(More)
current internet infrastructure is still configured and managed manually or adopting a limited level of automation. The Future Internet aims to provide the network resources as a service to ease the process of automatic designing, controlling and supervising the telecommunication infrastructure. A key enabler of the Future Internet is the virtualization of(More)
The increasing demand of bandwidth, low latency and reliability, even in mobile scenarios, has pushed the evolution of the networking technologies in order to satisfy the requirements of innovative services. In this context, Software Defined Networking (SDN), namely a new networking paradigm that proposes the decoupling of the control plane from the(More)
The increasing number of the Internet connected devices requires novel solutions to control the next generation network resources. The cooperation between the Software Defined Network (SDN) and the Network Function Virtualization (NFV) seems to be a promising technology paradigm. The bottleneck of current SDN/NFV implementations is the use of a centralized(More)
