About the group

MAPS was constituted as a UPC research group in 2006 as the result of integrating academics and researchers with experience on network management, network planing, architectures and service engineering. Taking advantage of the synergies and complementarity of its founders' background, the research scope of the group was established as follows:

  • Service Engineering (creation, deployment, management of context-aware and ubiquitous services)

  • Management of Service-aware Networks and Supporting Resources (autonomic management systems, software defined networking, network functions and resources virtualization)

  • Business and Economic Aspects of Telecommunication Services (SLAs, pricing)

  • Enabling Management Technologies (network virtualization, policy-based management, context-awareness, information and data modelling, reasoning and learning techniques)

MAPS has been recognised by the Generalitat de Catalunya as a Consolidated Research Group
