The third CSET Thesis in 3 took place on 25th October in the Smock Alley Theatre. The event showcased the research of 18 students from 9 SFI funded CSETS (CLARITY, SBI, CNGL, CRANN, Lero, BDI, CTVR, APC and DERI). Both Séamus Hickey (UL) and Emanuele Di Pascale (TCD) represented CTVR at the event. Emanuele was awarded the audience prize for his presentation entitled ”Buy Local” Paradigm for Next Generation Networks”, which outlines how Fiber-to-the-Home will bring high speed connections to our neighbourhoods, but it will also reduce the capacity gap between these residential access segments and the main information highways in the center of the network; which can lead to congestion. Emanuele proposes the application of the ”buy local” paradigm to future networks, redistributing content in your local community through peer-to-peer, one can avoid costly data transfers through the center of the Internet. His research shows that this approach can improve user experience by speeding up communications, while at the same time reducing power consumption and operational costs for network operators.
We wish to congratulate both Séamus and Emanuele for their hard work and presentations.
The event was co-ordinated by Aoibheann Bird from CLARITY, Cara Greene from CNGL and Philip Smyth from Systems Biology Ireland.
