Challenged Internet Access Network Technology Infrastructure
CHIANTI is a Small or medium-scale focused research project (STREP) and part of the ICT initiative of 7th EU framework programme. CHIANTI is developing technologies for enabling effective, robust, and cost-efficient communication services in challenging network environments, e.g., for providing a productive and stable Internet access to passengers in high-speed trains. Different to many existing approaches, CHIANTI is developing technologies that do not require a complete network coverage. Instead, CHIANTI will provide perceived seamless connectivity despite disruptions, changing network characteristics etc. and will thus enable users on the move to use today's and future network more productively.
