Digital Infrastructure is the core enabler of the digital transformation by providing secure, robust, responsive and intelligent communications and computation facilities. At Netfutures, EIT Digital present several projects relating to the innovation area Digital Infrastructure, focusing on mobile broadband infrastructure, Internet of Things, network management tools for software defined networks (SDN) and cloud computing.
The ACTIVE project – Advanced Connectivity platform for Vertical segments – is creating a generic connectivity and middleware platform including security to support application developers accelerating their efforts by not having to redo the whole stack. The platform will be applied and verified in the transport and health sectors; aircraft to deliver mobile broadband services as well as support the management of transportation vehicles through sensor and capillary nets and similar for wearable and body sensors in the health area.
