Institut National pour la Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA)

The national institute for research in computer science and control, operating under the joint authority of the Ministry of Research and the Ministry of Industry, is dedicated to fundamental and applied research in information and communication science and technology (ICST). Throughout its six research units located in seven major regions, INRIA has a workforce of 3,200, 2,400 of whom are scientists from INRIA or from INRIA's partner organizations such as CNRS (the French National Center for Scientific Research), universities and leading engineering schools.

For this project, INRIA represents also the following members of "Institut de recherche en informatique et systèmes aléatoires" :

  • Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique
  • Université de Rennes 1
  • Institut National des Sciences Appliquées

INRIA develops many partnerships with industry and fosters technology transfer and entrepreneurship in the field of ICST - some eighty companies have been founded. INRIA is participating in such standardization committees as the IETF, ISO or the W3C of which INRIA was the European host from 1995 to 2002. INRIA asserts its presence in the international research particularly in contributing to the development of the European Research Area through its implication in ERCIM (consortium of 18 European research institutions) and its participation to the 6th Framework Program.

Through the IRISA/ARMOR team it has developed a long background in analysis and design techniques, in IP technologies and in particular in IPv6 (IPv6 - IPv4 coexistence, IPv6 and security, I IPv6 and mobility, auto-configuration of equipments with IPv6), in dimensioning networks and network services, in QoS analysis and management, in testing techniques (conformity and inter-operability), in middleware solutions for mobility, etc.

The IMARA team (Informatique, Mathématique et Automatique pour la Route Automatisée) has been involved over the last 12 years in the application of Information Technologies in the field of intelligent road transport and in particular in driving assistance and automation. IMARA has participated in numerous European research programmes in this field such as Carsense, DIATS, Stardust, Cybercars, CyberMove, Prevent/Intersafe. IMARA is also involved in communication and networking between the vehicle and the roadside, and as such will participate to the FP6 integrated CVIS project.

Thales Communications France (TCF) - Coordinator

Thales Communications France (TCF) is one major branch of Thales Group. Thales Group revenues totalled 11.1 billion Euros in 2002, half from the Civilian businesses and half in the Professional and Defence domains. Thales Communication France (TCF) revenues reached 1.5 Billion Euro with 9000 people in 14 countries. TCF addresses every activity related to telecommunications: radiocommunications, IP networks, satellite communication, network administration and security.
TCF has a long experience in very large Information Systems and secure infrastructures for systems and networks, including Internet and Intranets. TCF also develops a full range of telecommunication platforms and components, a range of high performance security products and has a deep skill insecure telecommunications for public and governmental organisations, emergency services and armies.

The laboratory of TCF involved in ANEMONE is the Advanced Information Technologies (TAI) department. It is the French laboratory of the Internet Technology Centre of Thales Corporate Research & Technologies. This centre is in charge of technological innovation for Thales telecommunications equipment and information systems. This team is involved in leading edge IT projects aiming in specification, design and integration of security and telecommunication infrastructures. TAI has participated and participates to a large number of research project, including the IST projects SEINIT, WIDENS, MULTINET, the ITEA projects Mobilizing the Internet and MAGELLAN, and the French RNRT project INFRADIO. TAI personnel belongs to the following set of expert profiles:

  • Network experts, especially for fixed and mobile IP network design.
  • Security experts, able to evaluate the security levels of a system during the system design phase or afterwards, for a security audit.

TCF will thus bring to ANEMONE expertise on complex network architectures and also on security protocols and security architectures.

The ANEMONE project naturally fits with Thales Communication France exploitation plans since the mobile users and the nomadic behaviours are challenging the design of its current systems. TCF anticipates the use of the ANEMONE testbed to evaluate and to validate mobile products, new mobility services and applications that can be of great interest for its customers.
TCF implication in the research effort within the project clearly means that the targeted enhancements in IPv6 mobility technologies are of great interest for it and for the design of new range of innovative systems.

SFR Société Française du Radiotéléphone (SFR)

SFR is one of the major mobile operators in France. To adapt to the constant evolutions of the technologies and of its users requirements, SFR is deeply involved in research in particular on IPv6 and on mobility through its R&D French Laboratory. SFR has been participating in many R&D projects in various domains (QoS, addressing, IPv6, FMC…). SFR was the first French mobile operator to propose internet services even before the WAP in 1999. SFR also deployed the first GPRS network in France in 2000. In 2004 SFR launched the first UMTS offers in France and deployed the first French HSDPA network in 2006. SFR has always been a pioneer in the promotion of the mobile internet data services..

2006 figures :

  • 18 million customers
  • 34,6% market share (customer base)
  • More than 3 million 3G customers
  • More than 8 billion euros in cumulated investments (since its creation)
