In a remarkable
convergence of strategic initiatives, the kick-off meeting for the
and the progress meeting for DECICE took place on the same days, the former in
Bilbao and the latter in Vienna.
As SM4RTENANCE embarked on its
mission in Bilbao, the project set its sights on establishing a data space for
the manufacturing industry. The goal is to foster collaboration among
stakeholders, creating a dynamic environment for multiple services.
Simultaneously, in Vienna, the
DECICE project advanced in the creation of an AI-based, open, and portable
cloud management framework. This framework is designed to optimise and
seamlessly deploy applications across a federated infrastructure, contributing
to the evolution of cloud orchestration.
At the core of this convergence
lies the TOP-IX consortium, a partner in both SM4RTENANCE and DECICE projects.
The consortium’s dual involvement uniquely positions TOP-IX as a bridge,
connecting the establishment of a neutral data space for maintenance services
with the development of an innovative cloud management framework.
The concurrent participation of
the TOP-IX consortium in both projects holds distinct advantages, particularly
in the realm of network enforcement. In fact, TOP-IX’s active involvement is
specifically focused on navigating the network interconnection and network
neutrality topics. This dual presence not only ensures a cohesive approach to
industry transformation but also amplifies the commitment to network
sovereignty through persistent attention to network-centric strategies.
