European Commission has funded the development of several large-scale test beds and platforms addressing a broad range of applications, services and technologies to address the need for a Strategic Experimental Infrastructure for Future Internet Research & Experimentation (FIRE+). These facilities have already supported advanced experiments contributing significantly to the development of the Future Internet. Given that there are many requirements and needs that cannot be addressed with the existing facilities the ViLabs together with the JCP CONSULT, MARTEL, INTERINNOV, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON seek to develop a vision and scenarios that will clarify how the FIRE+ can bridge the gaps and address the needs for advanced networking experimentation and ancillary services, through the development of a roadmap that will analyse the needs of experimenters and make recommendations both on the technology side, but also on business and sustainability models.
ViLabs is also involved in the design of one cloud service and one mobile application to be submitted on the open calls for SMEs and web entrepreneurs of the third phase of the Future Internet PPP.
