mPlane industrial workshop in Barcelona, April 22 2015

mPlane Industrial Workshop

Barcellona - 22 April 2015



The research project mPlane (, sponsored by the European Commission with the goal of measuring and troubleshooting Internet performance and availability by building an Intelligent Measurement Plane for Future Network and Application Management, organizes an industrial workshop to showcase the technology developed within the project, and to stimulate the discussion towards the creation of a common Monitoring Plane for the Internet. Nowadays, the technologies that are available when monitoring a network are very fragmented and no standard means is offered to access the data each probe can produce. mPlane architecture is addressing this problem by offering a simple and very practical way to i) ask probes to run experiments, ii) collect results in large repositories, and iii) running automatic algorithms to extract useful information from the available data. The mPlane architecture supports use cases that spans from SLA verification, to CDN monitoring, from mobile access network troubleshooting, to passive content curation.

The workshop aims to stimulate discussion on the open problems and challenges in the network monitoring space and targets both academic researchers working in the area, and industrial partners (manufacturers, network providers, integrators).

When: April 22, 2015

The workshop, with invited speakers among industrial partners, will take place April 22, 2015, in the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, and it is co-located with the 7th edition of the International Workshop of Traffic Monitoring and Analysis (TMA).

This workshop brings together practical use cases relevant to operators and providers and discusses topics about proactive and reactive troubleshooting for network communications at a scale. Particular attention would be dedicated to discussing the definition of a measurement plane for the Internet, to shed light on the Internet quality. The keynote speakers will share with us their views about the challenges faced by the industry in the areas of network monitoring and measurements, and share their experiences in bringing to the market innovative solutions. Additionally, the workshop will host a showroom session, with the participation of several industries and startups.

The workshop, which is invitation-based, is provided free of charge, but we still have places available!
