Cars, sensors, home appliances, every device in the daily life of citizens is becoming a constituent in Future Internet, adding to the need to reconsider requirements and assumptions in terms of network availability and affordability to support the ever increasing traffic demand. Still, the current Internet can only evolve adequately, if its infrastructure can be devised to accommodate the emerging services, which is very expensive.

The goal of the Horizon2020 UMOBILE project is to make the Future Internet universally pervasive, by supporting a diverse set of services. To achieve this, we are developing a universal mobile-centric and opportunistic communications architecture, which integrates the principles of Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN) and Information Centric Networking (ICN) in a common framework.

"The Universal, Mobile-centric and Opportunistic Communications Architecture project (UMOBILE) has received funding from the European Union’s (EU) Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 645124"
