Building and operating a mobile broadband (MBB) testbed is the key goal of the MONROE project. Such a testbed, however, cannot be built without the feedback of the experimenters who will be the main users of it. Therefore, external users are in the core of the MONROE project. Through the first competitive open call, MONROE aims to involve the external users in the design process of the testbed to create a platform that meets the expectations of its users. The experimenters selected through the first open call will access to the prototype platform. They will be allowed to run active/passive measurements as well as propose protocol experiments, which require active traffic generation and SW support from the MONROE consortium. They can further propose SW extensions to the platform as well as HW extensions to the infrastructure. Since the experimenters will have access to the prototype system, they are expected, as their contribution, to provide SW/HW extensions and/or feedback that will be used to refine the platform to its final version.
