Strategic Goals

Experimentally driven research is considered to be a key factor for growing the European Internet industry. In order to enable this type of RTD activities, a number of projects for building a European facility for Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE) have been launched, each project targeting a specific community within the Future Internet ecosystem. Through the federation of these infrastructures, innovative experiments become possible that break the boundaries of these domains. Besides, infrastructure developers can utilize common tools of the federation, allowing them to focus on their core testbed activities.

Recent projects have already successfully demonstrated the advantages of federation within a community. The Fed4FIRE+ project intends to implement the next step in these activities by successfully federating across the community borders and offering openness for future extensions.

Solutions Developed / Used

Fed4FIRE+ is the largest worldwide federation of experimental Internet facilities in Next Generation Internet (NGI) area supporting and offering testbeds based on technologies ranging from wireless, wired, 5G, IoT, big data, cloud services, and open flow.
