Wireless networks importance for the Future Internet is raising at a fast pace as mobile devices increasingly become its entry point. However, today’s wireless networks are unable to rapidly adapt to evolving contexts and service needs due to their rigid architectural design. We believe that the wireless Internet’s inability to keep up with innovation directly stems from its reliance on the traditional layer-based Internet abstraction. Especially, the Link Layer interface appears way too abstracted from the actual wireless access and coordination needs.

IC1004 is the Action on Cooperative Radio Communications for Green Smart Environments and belongs to the ICT Domain. This Action addresses research issues in the field of cooperative radio communications to make our society cleaner, safer, and more energy efficient.
The Action goals are as follows:
- to increase knowledge of cooperative communications applied to Green SEs (GSEs), by exploring and developing new methods, models, techniques, strategies and tools, in a context enriched by deep industry-academia links;

Wireless local area networks (WLANs) based on the IEEE 802.11 standard should play a significant role  in the Future Internet. To facilitate their achieving this goal,  within this project we envision two research paths: evolutionary and revolutionary. The first is related to upcoming extensions to the IEEE 802.11 standard and focuses on  the analysis of performance, susceptibility to misbehaviour, and cooperation with the current version of the standard. The second path is related to introducing Future Internet functionalities in WLANs: autonomicity and network virtualization.

The aim of the project is to develop and implement mechanisms of the Cross‐Protect router, the
standard interconnecting device of the Flow‐Aware Networks (FAN). During the first stage, new
methods of realizing admission control and packet scheduling will be proposed and fully analyzed.
Particularly, in the admission control block, the following mechanisms will be developed:
‐ mechanisms to allow fast admission of the streaming flows in the admission control block
‐ mechanisms which enhance the standard service differentiation routing proposed by FAN
