You can also now manage project publications using Zotero. Any publication added to the W-5/Website folder can be automatically pulled onto the publications list on the website. The only slight inconvenience is that the pull has to be actioned manually, so if you do add something on Zotero, just let me know and it’s a ten second job to update the website publications list.
Hopefully this should make things easier for everyone to use.
We already use SharePoint for internal document and data management, so it would seem natural to be able to manage the news items through that. We’re currently therefore testing whether we can syndicate posts from SharePoint through to the WordPress site via RSS.
This is the first post, to see whether it can be done!
The project website has had some updates and changes. The calendar is now live, with details of our upcoming events. The deliverable list has been added, although we still need to produce the deliverables to add to it (hold this space! The first is due soon). The publications are now going up on line, with the first being the recent journal article by Saldana et al. on Small-Packet Flows in Software Defined Networks.
Finally, the project’s Twitter feed is now embedded in the site. Check this out for minute-by-second updates on the project’s progress!
The Wi-5 project is pleased to announce the first publication generated by the project:
The paper, published in the Journal of Networks, proposes a method for optimizing bandwidth usage in Software Defined Networks (SDNs) based on OpenFlow. For the traffic considered in the paper, improvements of up to 68 % for IPv4 and 78 % for IPv6 are achieved using header optimisation and multiplexing performed within the SDN portion of the network.
See the Publications Page for the project’s publication list as it develops.
