The International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Networking 2024 Conference was held from 3 to 6 June in Thessaloniki, Greece. The main objective of this year’s edition was to bring together academic and industrial experts of the networking community to discuss the most recent advances in networking, to highlight key issues, identify trends, and develop a vision of the future Internet from a design, deployment and operation standpoints. The sessions and workshops were designed with a special focus on network architectures, applications and services; network modeling, analysis and operation; network security and privacy; and wireless networking.

PREDICT-6G was part of the IFIP Networking Conference with a paper authored by Luis Velasco and Marc Ruiz from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, among others. The paper, titled “Provisioning of Time-Sensitive and non-Time-Sensitive Flows: from Control to Data Plane“, was presented by Marc at the 4th International Workshop on Time-Sensitive and Deterministic Networking (TENSOR) 2024. The goal of this workshop was to bring together researchers from academia and industry in order to investigate challenging aspects in the area of time- sensitive deterministic communications, as well as identify future research directions for ultra-low latency communications.

“Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) standards provide scheduling and traffic shaping mechanisms to ensure the coexistence of Time-Sensitive (TS) and non-TS traffic classes on the same network infrastructure. Nonetheless, much effort is still needed on the operation of such TSN capable network infrastructure to ensure that the required performance of the different flows, defined in terms of key performance indicators, can be met once the flows are deployed in the network. In this presentation, we focused on such aspects and proposed a solution involving not only packet schedulers in the data plane, but also network-wide scheduling for TS flows, as well as performance estimation for non-TS flows”, stated Marc Ruiz.

The paper is available here.
