University of Paderborn (UPB)

University of Paderborn participates in the OneLab project with its Computer Networks Research Group and the Paderborn Centre for Parallel Computing (PC2); both are headed by Professor Holger Karl. The Computer Networks Group is a recently funded group (in autumn 2004); members of the group are currently participating, among other things, in the forthcoming EU FP7 IP 4WARD (and other projects like EU FP6 WASP and national projects like TANDEM and MIKOA). The group has, in addition, a considerable expertise in wireless and mobile research, for example in applying so-called cooperative transmission techniques to local and mesh networks. In this context, they operate a powerful, software-defined, radio-based testbed for WLAN environments with full access to physical and MAC layer.

The Paderborn Centre for Parallel Computing (PC2) is a well-established interdisciplinary research institute that focuses on high-performance and Grid computing. It has participated and is participating in numerous EU and national research projects (e.g., AssessGrid, DELIS, BIS-Grid, D-Grid, HPC4U). It provides one of the larger grid computing and storage facilities in Germany and has a large experience in running and maintaining complex systems and providing service to research customers. In this context, one research focus of PC2 is virtualisation technology for computation, storage, and networking resources.

Role in the OneLab project:

UPB joined the project in its second phase (OneLab2) and has a role that concentrates on realising virtualisation techniques to be used in the testbed, mainly working within WP7 Content.

Key staff:

  • Prof. Holger Karl, Head of PC2 and UPB Computer Networks Group, Senior Researcher
  • Dr André Brinkmann, Researcher
