SoftFIRE: SDN in the large will start in February
News from Jan. 25, 2016
The Consortium is pursuing the integration of experimental facilities, testbeds and laboratories into a Federated testbed in the context of FIRE+.
Focus on three major key aspects: interoperability, programmability, and security. These properties will be analysed in terms of efficiency, functional responsiveness, end to end latency and generally end to end QoS. FOKUS and TUB will integrate the 5G-Playground in this large scale testbed. The 5G-Playground will provide on demand deployments of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) providing a fully virtualised 5G-enabled core network using the NFV environment implemented by the Open Baton tool.
