The focus of the first trial is on comprehensive integration and evaluationthroughout the development of the IoT-NGIN technologies. The task will ensure that the IoT-NGIN components achieve the expected Technology Readiness Level (TRL). The results will facilitate the development of the IoT-NGIN meta-architecture, while exploring scenarios for the development and validation of 5G and IoT KPIs.
The OneLab facility of the Sorbonne University will be used as IoT-NGIN Integration Infrastructure to validate the IoT-NGIN physical requirements, namely IoT/5G and M2M/MCM communications and resource self-awareness, as well as to validate ML in IoT constrained devices and moving IoT nodes, robots and sensors.
The OneLab facility is a state-of-the-art test platform for exploring the design of digital infrastructures. It provides 24/7 remote access to a virtualized and programmable set of resources from IoT to cloud. OneLab will allow us to fully customize our experiments integrating a large set of IoT resources, including mobile devices and sensing capabilities; ad-hoc wireless and wireless broadband access networks.
OneLab federates different facilities offering diversity and scale, among which the NITOS and the FIT test platforms. IoT-NGIN will exploit NITOS’ Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) testbeds to test our technologies under diverse scenarios. Moreover, FIT’s very large scale IoT testbed will be exploited to test and validate the IoT-NGIN technologies and applications in a large set of wireless static and mobile IoT nodes with a high variety of sensing capabilities.
