SDN in the large

The Consortium is pursuing the integration of experimental facilities, testbeds and laboratories into a Federated testbed in the context of FIRE+. Focus on technologies like Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization in order to create a reliable experimental network infrastructure within the FIRE+ initiative. Focus on three major key aspects: interoperability, programmability, and security. These properties will be analyzed 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 virtualized 5G-enabled core network using the NFV environment implemented by the Open Baton tool.
