Project description:
The BMBF joint project AI-NET-PROTECT develops concepts, architectures and methods for automated network operation and secure networks on trustworthy devices for critical infrastructures and companies. AI-NET-PROTECT guarantees the protection of critical data and high robustness of the network infrastructure through a scalable network and node architecture, network telemetry and software-defined network management for the automation of end-to-end services with the help of artificial intelligence and strong security. The Chair of Climatology participates in planning, design and setting up of a test infrastructure for a hybrid network on the Campus Charlottenburg of TU Berlin. This hybrid network consists of wireless terahertz connections, so-called "virtual fibers" with transmission rates above 100 Gbit, which are embedded in a fiber optic infrastructure. For an intensive observation of atmospheric conditions within the test infrastructure, automatic weather stations will be set up on the campus as well as data from a weather radar system will be integrated. This experimental work is supplemented by microscale urban climate simulations in order to analyze the spatial variability of atmospheric conditions. The main subject of the investigations in network operation is the optimization and reliability of the "virtual fibers" taking into account changing weather conditions, in particular with regard to the spatial and temporal variability of precipitation as well as air temperature and atmospheric humidity.
