Future Internet Research & Experimentation Projects

Article
Europe needs a Strategic Experimental Infrastructure for Future Internet Research & Experimentation (FIRE+) available to experiments of any size, complexity, or networking technology.

The Future Internet Research and Experimentation – FIRE – initiative is addressing exactly this need to experiment with networks, by creating a multidisciplinary test environment for investigating and experimentally validating highly innovative and revolutionary ideas for new networking and service paradigms.
FIRE offers a methodology, an infrastructure and tools to try out innovative ideas for the Future Internet. It is creating a dynamic, sustainable, large-scale European Experimental Infrastructure, which is constructed by gradually connecting and “federating” existing and upcoming test beds for Future Internet technologies.
In addition, in FIRE we promote the concept of the experimentally-driven research, combining visionary academic research with the wide-scale testing and experimentation that is required for the industry.
