ICT Challenge 1

ICT challenge 1

Pervasive and Trustworthy Network and Services Infrastructures

Planned EU contribution under the federating theme “Future Internet” in 2009/2010: > 567 M€

“creating a research environment for investigating and experimentally validating highly innovative and revolutionary ideas“

To investigate, test and compare, at large scale, new paradigms and future internet architectures, and their socio-economic impact

e.g. transport/routing paradigms, dynamic topologies, service architectures ...

e.g. socio economic impact of putting intelligence into the core, changing the end-to-end principle, ...

Purpose of FIRE

Purpose of FIRE





Dimensions of Future Internet

Dimensions of Future Internet

Support investments: backward compatibility

Need for (open) standards

Security for commer-cial services and applications

Terabyte networks



Internet of things

Clean slate approaches

European competitiveness on future Internet (act where market forces fail)

Consumer protection / empowerment

Social responsibility: preserve neutrality, openness, fairness, social role

Balance the need for security/accountability and the right to privacy


FP7 – WP 2009/10: Building the facility and stimulating its use

FP6: Early design & prototyping

  • building the prototype FIRE Facility based on open coordinated federation of testbeds
  • supporting FI Research at different stages of R&D cycle
  • expanding scope towards service architectures
  • operati0nal prototype of FIRE Components to be gradually expanded
  • Stimulating innovativeuse of the FIRE Facility







Building the FIRE Facility

Building the FIRE Facility

FP7 – WP 2007/08: Prototyping the federation concept

  • open and dynamic
  • focus on network connectivity layers
  • supporting academia and industry
  • proof-of-concept → pre-commercial tbs
  • understanding the socio-economic dim.
  • availability and gradual expansion of prototype services starting in 2008

challenges for 2009 and beyond
Have a working prototype of the integrated FIRE facility in 2011 (9 months into Call 5 projects)

Match the offer of the FIRE prototypes with the demand by research projects across Challenge 1

Establish FIRE Research as the Grand Challenge projects for the FIRE Facility

Establish bilateral federations between FIRE prototypes and with other EU national or international facilities

Establish FIRE as an integral part of a potential Future Internet PPP

Challenges for 2009 and beyond

ICT WP 2009/10 - Objective 1.6:

Future Internet experimental facility

ICT Call 5

building the experimental facility and stimulating its use 1
The FIRE facility shall allow for:

Large scale experimentation with and comparison of visionary approaches for

network architectures and technologies,

service architectures and platforms,

networked media

and trustworthy infrastructures for the Future Internet.

Experimentation with systems based on cross-layer/non-layered approaches;

Direct involvement of user communities;

Assessment of the socio-economic and environmental impact.

The FIRE facility should be:



Open at all levels and based on open standards.

Participation from INCO countries in particular at use level encouraged.

Building the Experimental Facility and stimulating its use (1)
building the experimental facility and stimulating its use 2
FIRE Components:

Operational prototype to be provided at an early stage

minimum 20% of the resourcesfor gradual expansion of functionality

in a demand-driven and open way;

by federating testbeds providing additional functionality within the facility.

FIRE Users:

Minimum 20% of the resources for extending the use for research groups that

propose innovative usage scenarios

exploiting the multiple dimensions and scale of the facility

using the mechanism of open call

High degree of innovation in the use of the Facility, including

system level experiments making a comprehensive use of several components of the facility,

large scale experimentation,

broad involvement of user communities,

assessment of socio-economic and other non-technological aspects.

Results, lessons learnt and recommendations of mutual interest

serving the needs of the users

helping the Facility operators to refine the concept and the services of the Facility.

Support of individual experiments

to be focused on the setting up and running of the experiment

typically not exceeding EUR 200 000 per experiment.

Building the Experimental Facility and stimulating its use (2)

Experimentally-Driven Research in WP 2009-2010

Visionary multidisciplinary research:

  • Defining the challenges for and taking advantage of the Experimental Facility
  • Consisting of iterative cycles of research, design and large-scale experimentation of new and innovative network and service architectures and paradigms for the Future Internet
  • Research to consider the Future Internet as a complex system and therefore address all the associated aspects in a holistic vision and at all relevant levels and layers (taking a system perspective)
  • This includes the definition of relevant metrics taking into account energy, low cost, environmental or socio-economic aspects
co ordination and support actions
Coordination of related EU-level and MSs / ACs activities

International co-operation with other initiatives in industrial and emerging countries

Collaboration on standardisation in order to exploit synergies

Multidisciplinary networking of research communities addressing both technological and socio-economic and environmental aspects of the Future Internet

Co-ordination of experience research and user-driven open innovation activities establishing common concepts, tools, roadmaps, methodologies, including the sharing of best practices across pilots and sectors.

Co-ordination and Support Actions
expected impact
Improved European competitiveness in Future Internet research and development by providing European researchers, in industry and academia, with a

unique operational, sustainable, dynamic, and integrated large scale Experimental Facility,

which is used by a significant number of Future Internet research projects in European and national programmes and beyond

Establishing the methodology of experimentally-driven research for investigation of innovative concepts for FI taking a multidisciplinary and holistic approach

Assessment at an early stage of the technological, societal, economic and environmental implications of changes to the Internet

Strengthened European competitive position on experimentation environments through targeted international co-operation

Increased acceptance and use of the concept of user-driven open innovation through demonstrated benefits from complementary approaches of open testbeds, pilots, experience research, etc.
