Ambient Network

Ambient Network

Ambient Networks is a network integration design that seeks to solve problems relating to switching between networks to maintain contact with the outside world. This project aims to develop a network software-driven infrastructure that will run on top of all current or future network physical infrastructures to provide a way for devices to connect to each other, and through each other to the outside world.

The concept of Ambient Networks comes from the IST Ambient Network project, which is a research project sponsored by the European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).
