The SoftFIRE project – Software Defined Networks and Network Function Virtualization Testbed within FIRE+ – has EXTENDED their 1st Open Call.
The new submission deadline is September 20, 2016!
SoftFIRE aims at creating an ecosystem of organizations around the technological field of NFV/SDN and and its evolution towards 5G developments.
In order to achieve this goal, SoftFIRE needs to aggregate as many as possible organizations and people around an enabling platform. The SoftFIRE platform consists in a federated testbed that comprises very different experimental frameworks. The SoftFIRE federated testbed is available for experimenting new services, applications and functional extensions of the platform. The mechanisms envisaged for nurturing an ecosystem are based on the concept of Open Calls and specific related events (like Hackathons, InterOptest and Challenges).
In this context, the federated infrastructure will be used in order to:
- Develop new services and applications from Third parties, and
- Develop new platform functionalities.
The typical profile of the participants the SoftFIRE is looking for is academics, industrial or SMEs active in the domain of NFV/SDN and 5G research and applications that need to run experiments to test, evaluate and optimize their solutions and applications.
