PSIRP: Publish/subscribe Internet prototype

This is a technology or research stand, located in Zone R4 - ICT connects. Stand number: R4-05

PSIRP, the ‘publish-subscribe internet routing paradigm’ project, aims to restore trust in the proper operation of the internet.

In a publish/subscribe network, senders ‘publish’ what they want to send, and receivers ‘subscribe’ to the publications that they want to receive. The PSIRP project has designed and implemented a unique future internet architecture based entirely on the publish/subscribe paradigm. This exhibit will demonstrate the integrated prototype with video and web applications. Visitors can retrieve and publish content through a simple user interface. The demonstration network will be connected to PSIRP nodes in other countries via a VPN over the internet. The set-up is clarified in diagrams, and developers of the system will be conducting the demonstrations and answering questions. Visitors will also have the opportunity to try the demo hands-on.
