Global Experimentation for Future Internet (GEFI):
Brazil – EU – Japan – US collaboration
This session will be the opportunity to present the outcomes of the first workshop on Global Experimentation for Future Internet or GEFI. With the participation of Europe, US, Brazil and Japan, the 1st GEFI workshop will take place in Brussels just before Net Futures 2016 conference.
The GENI/FIRE collaboration initiative, active since 2013, aims at developing joint activities between EU and US-based researchers in the field of Future Internet Experimentation. Their investigations have dug into areas of mutual interest, such as future internet architectures/services/applications, federation, cloud, IoT, wireless, ontologies,…
During the previous joint workshop, held in Washington DC in September 2015, the participants and organisers identified additional countries with Future Internet testbed activities well‐suited to participate in the first “enlarged” collaborative workshop. Japan and Brazil have confirmed their participation in the 1st GEFI workshop.
This session will start with an overview of the funded collaborations among the involved countries.
It will then continue by exploring and showing through live demos how global experimentation can boost research and innovation, and build a worldwide Future Internet playground enabling the researchers, industry, SMEs and startups to mature and tests their ideas.
Spanning from physical infrastructures and virtualized resources, up to end-users communities, the available testing facilities should offer a huge variety of environments and technologies, driving the development and faster growth of Internet-based products, services and new businesses.
