Turn-key 5G ready testbed customized for any use case and location

Meet our 5G experts at hall 7, booth #7 L51 

Fraunhofer FOKUS will present its testbed “5G Playground”. It is already an integral part of the 5G Berlin testbed and can be customized for verticals like industrial communication, eHealth, automotive and media. You will benefit from the broad experience the researchers have gained from early tests of different 5G applications.

Agile, safe and vendor independent

The standard compliant testbed has a modular structure so that vertical-specific third party components like an application server or radio components from operators, e.g. sensors and gateways, can easily be integrated.

In addition, with ElasTest Fraunhofer FOKUS provides a testing platform for distributed systems like in the Internet of Things. ElasTest aims to improve the testing of complex systems by supplying a cloud platform designed to help developers test and validate their Systems in the Large (SiL). A SiL is a large distributed system exposing services and applications which can be based on complex architectures on heterogeneous environments. The platform includes Open5GCore, a 5G toolkit of FOKUS, and OpenBaton, an open-source ETSI NFV (Network Function Virtualization) Management and Orchestration (MANO) compliant platform.

Software defined Network (SDN) Security

With the evolution towards software networks, a redesign of the security enablers is needed together with the re-design of the networking substrate in the cloud environments. Therefore Fraunhofer FOKUS developed embedded security features for SDN data centers. It comprises of flow level traffic monitoring for e.g. secure network slicing and a distributed firewall. The attack detection is aided by machine learning and dynamic policy actuation.

Fog/ Edge Computing for Industrie 4.0

For Industry 4.0 applications FOKUS provides the framework OpenIoTFog. It is a prototype of an “Asset Administration Shell” conforming to Industrial Internet standards. The middleware converts sensors and actuators into Industry 4.0 components and allows for the collection, aggregation and the vendor-independent exchange of data. Furthermore, this approach facilitates the control via various wired and wireless communication paths, protocols and fieldbus systems. Following the Fog/Edge Computing approach (microclouds close to the asset), these facilities are additionally enhanced through local functionalities that have a high demand on data sovereignty, real-time capability, robustness and autonomy.
