Abstract Since its first prototype presented in Deliverable D1.5, some major enhancements have been added to the Network Service Plane implementation. These include possibilities of distributing the interdomain functionality to improve failure resilience and scalability, integration of AAA concepts developed within WP4, multi-constraint support, malleable reservations for data transfers, a notification framework to eliminate the need for polling status changes in regular intervals, and some other minor enhancements. This deliverable describes the new prototype.
