Clustering of Network Data Streams for Alcatel-Lucent
Alcatel-Lucent manufactures telecommunications equipment ranging from telephone handsets to internet routers. The Research & Innovation group within Alcatel-Lucent is mandated with evaluating new technologies and new ideas that may benefit Alcatel products, thereby benefiting Alcatel-Lucent’s customers, and ultimately the end users. One current area of research is the ability to group streams of traffic into clusters, so that similar types of traffic can be treated together, and to allocate resources suitable for the stream. Thus this collaborative internship project targets algorithms to cluster these traffic streams in high dimensional spaces, given the restricted computing power available for such features at the router level.
