SoftFIRE - Towards federated SDN Testbeds for 5G in Europe
The H2020 project “SoftFIRE” focuses on NFV/SDN aiming at creating a secure, interoperable and programmable experimental infrastructure within FIRE+. The project is federating experimental testbeds that will result in an infrastructure that third parties can use to develop new services and applications. The federation is a fundamental step towards the creation of a network experimental infrastructure that anticipates 5G.
