The TRIANGLE project will have a number of Open Calls or funding opportunities, commencing in October 2016 and concluding in early 2018.
Type of participants: The profile of call participants is SMEs, larger companies and/or research institutions that are active in research and/or development and testing of applications, services, or devices that could require high speed, low latency, or high reliability that would benefit from 5G and could benefit from benchmarking their apps, devices or Services. The target recipient would be interested in testing target applications or devices on the TRIANGLE Test Bed. Applicable areas could include but are not limited to gaming, Virtual Reality, medical applications/devices, autonomous and remote control vehicles and IoT devices. The rules of participation are the same as for any H2020 proposal.
Experiment description: The TRIANGLE Test bed will measure many low-level aspects of mobile devices and applications including the impact of power drain, network latency and various types of network mobility. The Test bed contains a number of powerful mobile testing and emulation devices to test different network conditions. Part of the Test bed features tools for automation of app deployment and configuration and includes the ability to execute automated test scripts. Experiments are expected to make use of the Test bed functionality to test mobile apps and devices under different network conditions.
Benefits to the applicant: As there are no live networks with 5G features yet applicants can save the cost of making their own experimentation platform. Triangle is a unique platform to test some of the features that will be provided by 5G, so the new services and products will be ready when 5G networks become available.
Triangle members will provide support for employing your application or device into the testbed and the service is free to access for the duration of the experiment. Triangle certification will indicate how your device or application performs under a number of test conditions and compares to benchmark devices and applications that have similar features.
