The internet market has become an important element of the european and worldwide economy and is growing constantly, outperforming most other market segments. In order to provide the ground for the emerging market demands in the internet economy, the European Commission has launched the FP7 Future Internet Public-Private Partnership (FI-PPP) on May 3rd with the Kickoff of the FI-WARE large scale Project in Madrid. During the four day meeting, the course and main objectives for the project have been settled.
In the scope of FI-WARE, the core platform for the Future Internet is going to be defined and realized by introducing an innovative infrastructure for cost-effective creation and delivery of services, providing high QoS and security guarantees.
The Fraunhofer institute FOKUS is a partner in FI-WARE and will significantly define and realize architectural components for the Network and Service Access in the Future internet.
FOKUS has a strong competence in the area of fixed and mobile network architectures of 3G and 4G, which make their OpenEPC software and the open testbed for Future Seamless Communication (FUSECO) valuable building blocks for Future Internet Testbeds in FI-WARE.
