Welcome to SpoVNet

The Spontaneous Virtual Network (SpoVNet) research project develops overlay-based tools and techniques for easy development and spontaneous deployment of distributed network applications and services. As a step forward on the migration path towards the Internet of the future, SpoVNet is able to cope with the challenges raised by an evolving network. Learn more about how it works.

A couple of Open Source Projects originated in SpoVNet.
