Evolving FIRE into a 5G-Oriented Experimental Playground for Vertical Industries

The main 5GINFIRE goal is to build and operate an Open, and Extensible 5G NFV-based Reference (Open5G-NFV) ecosystem of Experimental Facilities that not only integrates existing FIRE facilities with new vertical-specific ones but also lays down the foundations for instantiating fully softwarised architectures of vertical industries and experimenting with them.


The 5GINFIRE White Paper on Experimentation

– submitted to the Test, Measurement and KPIs Validation Working Group of the 5G PPP – download

The purpose of the whitepaper is to share mechanisms that have permitted to conduct more than 25 experiments over 5GinFIRE. On the one side, testing workflows were defined so that participating actors, roles, capabilities and offered services were clear for the incoming experimenters. On the other, schemes to develop, on-board and deploy experiments were designed to improve the availability (and repeatability) of 5G tests.

In order to offer its testbeds to a wide community of experimenters, the 5GINFIRE project organized competitive open calls for experiments to be implemented and executed on the top of the 5GINFIRE experimental infrastructure.  Furthermore, the 5GINFIRE was also seeking for further relevant testbeds to be integrated within the 5GINFIRE experimental framework. A number of experiments and additional testbeds have already been implemented in 5GINFIRE. Two examples are captured in the videos below.

Implementation in 5GINFIRE


Integration in 5GINFIRE

5GINFIRE is a three years Research and Innovation action / project under the EU programme Horizon 2020 (Grant Agreement no. 732497) started on 1 January 2017. The EC funding is 4,999,970€ and 50% of this amount is dedicated to third parties (experimenters and 5G experimental facilities owners/operators) which will be selected through the planned 5GINFIRE Open Calls.
