Validate new technologies by analytical and experimental methods, develop a strategy for upgrading/evolving networks, and analyze available alternatives and their efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Illustrative areas in this category may include: the development of Layer 1 strategies, the integration of L1/L2/L3 strategies, and the design of strong SLA’s, based, for example, on MPLS VPN technology or a combination of DiffServ and MPLS.
