The Technology for a Realistic End User Access Network Test-bed (TORRENT) project is building a test-bed for multi-service residential access networks that will allow the project to demonstrate the benefit of intelligent control, both for the customer and for the network operators and service providers. The test-bed will support the definition of architectures that allow a home user's quality of service expectations to be met by employing - in a way that is transparent to the user - the most appropriate core transport network, be it connectionless or connection-oriented. Systems will be prototyped to segregate traffic according to its optimum mode of transportation and to manage routing and charging.
TORRENT encompasses systems integration activities, new developments, and close liaison with emerging standards and specifications. TORRENT is basing its applications on the use of IPv6.
