IMT Atlantique, internationally recognized for the quality of its research, is a leading general engineering school under the authority of the Ministry of Industry and Digital Technologies, ranked in the 3 main international rankings (THE, SHANGAI, QS). With three campuses in Brest, Nantes and Rennes, IMT Atlantique aims to combine digital technology and energy to transform society and industry through training, research and innovation.
The successful candidate will work in the Computer Science department, within the Maths&Net research team. The Maths&Net team, within the Cybersecurity (CYR) pole of the UMR 6285 LabSTICC, aims to design, describe, manage, secure, control various aspects of communication networks.
The successful candidate will also work in close collaboration with the SRCD department (network systems, cybersecurity and digital law, Rennes, France), and the Optics department, Brest, France.
The objective of the project is to provide a framework facilitating on-the-fly slicing to meet the needs of "Beyond 5G" (B5G) services. We focus on both theoretical and applied aspects. On the one hand, we aim to propose resource allocation methods adapted to traffic demands, taking into account the specificity of the optical network connecting the antenna sites. We will study Markovian formulations of the problem, and seek solutions using machine learning techniques. In particular, we will consider demands that arrive asynchronously and have different latency, availability, and bandwidth requirements. On the other hand, we aim to integrate our solutions into an SDN-oriented optical access testbed.
