Trends such as the influx of consumer devices into the workplace will require more flexible and creative solutions from IT staff in order to maintain security while enabling access to collaborative technologies. Trends such as the influx of consumer devices into the workplace will require more flexible and creative solutions from IT staff for maintaining security while enabling access to collaborative technologies. Given the desire of workers to bring the devices they use at home into the workplace, enterprises need to adopt a 'bring your own device' (BYOD) vision - that is, securing the network and data regardless of how workers access information.

Based upon a real-world regional scenario in Scotland, CONSERVE will build and demonstrate an innovative integrated approach to urban resilience planning, event management, environmental management and critical infrastructure protection. This will improve quality of life for citizens in that a coordinated response to flooding events will minimise harm to both citizens and critical infrastructure. An understanding of systemic risk is emerging in some cities, but solutions are in their infancy. Existing city dashboards allow visualisation of city authority activity, but without interlinked workflow and information sharing between public and private. CONSERVE would create a first-of-its-kind service as a model for other cities to build on. It will detail how the multi-stakeholder challenges of flood event response can be addressed through data virtualisation and open city datasets, multi-agency workflow, and state-of-the-art analytics.The commercial procurement models supporting these initiatives will also be considered

In one system embodiment, an overlapped block processing module configured to provide three-dimensional (3D) denoising of plural frames corresponding to a raw video sequence; and a frame alignment module configured to represent the raw video sequence with motion compensated frames corresponding to the raw video sequence, the motion compensated frames consisting of the plural frames and fewer in quantity than the quantity of frames of the raw video sequence, the plural frames based on prior temporally matched frames corresponding to the raw video sequence.

A method is provided in one example embodiment and includes establishing a control channel between a first entity associated with an access network and a second entity associated with a core network. The control channel is associated with a session identifier identifying a user session. The method further includes receiving policy information associated with the user session from the second entity using the first control channel. The policy information is indicative of one or more policies to be applied in the access network to user data associated with the user session.

SWIFT will use high-speed in-carriage Wi-Fi to improve the passenger experience, enhance commercial opportunities and improve train management capabilities. Wi-Fi on trains is currently delivered using bonded mobile solutions. This is essentially providing Internet access to whole trains via a handful of tethered smartphones. Improving capacity in-carriage requires trackside Wi-Fi backhaul, which relies on advanced service management, with session handover at 2ms. This has been demonstrated in a lab but not in a real-life environment. SWIFT will demonstrate this technology on UK rail, advancing the state-of-the-art. Furthermore, Wi-Fi is moving beyond a pure Internet access model to value-added services based on location and presence- awareness with Big Data analytics. These types of services are seen increasingly in the retail sector, but have not as yet reached on-train Wi-Fi. SWIFT will bring this innovation to the UK rail sector through its application development and SME Open Innovation competition. It will expose new businesses with creative, technical, and user experience capabilities to the UK rail sector, enhancing the customer experience in rail travel.
