Fed4FIRE Open Tutorial Day

Category: Events

10 December 2014, Berlin, Germany

Innovative service and application development gets boosted by having access to large scale testbed infrastructures. The Fed4FIRE project opens up Europe's most pioneering pilot and testbed facilities to SMEs for early trials and experiments of their products and services. Fed4FIRE adds a new dimension to the development cycle. It  offers unique opportunities especially for SMEs that now can profit from experimentation facilities all over Europe. 

The Fed4FIRE Open Tutorial Day gives a general introduction to the Fed4FIRE initiative and provides in-depth information on participating testbeds. The event is directed towards newly joining experimenters and testbed providers from recent open calls. However, participation is open to interested 3rd parties, especially SMEs that want to learn more on how they can profit from Fed4FIRE facilities.

Testbeds presented at the Fed4FIRE Open Tutorial Day include (more details about the testbeds are available here):

  • Virtual Wall
  • Fuseco
  • Bonfire
  • Openflow
  • Smartsantander
  • w-Ilab.t

Welcome to FED4FIRE

If you think that experimentation is essential for Future Internet research

If you think that no single experimentation facility can be build in which future Internet related experiments can be conducted

If you believe that larger experimentation facilities could be build through federating existing testbeds

... then explore the opportunities offered by the Fed4FIRE project.

Fed4FIRE is delivering a common federation framework for Future Internet Research and Experimentation facilities that will:

  • be widely adopted by different communities (experimentation facilities, experimenters, academia, industry)
  • support powerful experiment lifecycle management (including tools for discovery and reservation, experiment control, measurements, etc.)
  • support key aspects of trustworthiness (federated identity management and access control, accountability, SLA management)

What’s in it for you (the experimenter)?

  • Create experiments that break the boundaries of the different FIRE domains (wireless, wired, OpenFlow, cloud computing, smart cities, services, etc.)
  • Easily access all the required resources with a single account.
  • Focus on your core task of experimentation, instead of on practical aspects such as learning to work with different tools for each testbed, requesting accounts on each testbed separately, etc.

—Fed4FIRE will fund two open calls for experiments

  • Next call will be launched in 2014. The 2013 call is closed
  • Open to academia and industry

What’s in it for you (the facility provider)?

  • Reach a larger community of potential experimenters through
    • –common resource discovery mechanisms –
    • common dissemination activities
  • Increase the technical possibilities for your experimenters
    • –Access to other testbeds in the Fed4FIRE community –
    • Support of multi-testbed experiments
  • Lower your costs through
    • –The adoption of jointly developed common tools –
    • The participation in a common First Level Support service

—Fed4FIRE will fund two open calls for additional facilities

  • Next call will be launched in 2014. The 2013 call is closed
  • Open to academia and industry

Do not wait for a call

If you have an interesting experiment that could execute over the Fed4FIRE facility, or you have an innovative infrastructure that could connect to the Fed4FIRE facility, you do not need to wait until a call is open. Please contact us at contact(at)fed4fire(dot)eu to discuss options for cooperation.
