Descrição: UBIQUIMESH provides cross-layer optimization in multiple mesh ubiquitous networks, including scenarios of multiple mesh networks both for the backhaul and access networks, and multi-operators. The main objetives are: (i) To identify, monitor and optimize QoE metrics for voice and video services in these networks by considering the support of an hierarchy of mesh networks for the identified scenarios; (ii) To define cross-layer mechanisms to optimize the impact of the developed QoE metrics into the concatenated mesh network performance. Our research will explore mechanisms for efficient use of spectrum, for the shared medium access and routing onto the concatenated networks, transport issues, as well as the usefulness of context awareness, e.g. positioning, the distribution of the velocities and active services; (iii) To apply game theory concepts to optimize the cooperation among the different agents: subscriber terminal access network nodes (gateway to the operator) and backbone network routers; (iv) To use pricing models to analyse the benefit associated with agent as well as the interactions among different network operators through the use of the optimization methodologies previously proposed.
