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 which are active in research and/or development of 5G components.
The TRIANGLE project implements a test bed emulating realistic 5G scenarios (such as dual connectivity or heterogeneous handover). To complement and improve the current functionality, the project is looking for companies and research institutions interested in providing further extensions supporting or expanding the 5G benchmarking capability. Benchmarking 5G applications and devices is very dependent on the final networking scenarios that can be reproduced in the test bed.
The selected extensions will be integrated into the current TRIANGLE test bed by the selected proposer and be made available as technology to be used as part of the 5G Triangle benchmarking and experiments.
Extension description: The consortium is open to receive proposals having the objective to expand the current test bed capability. A list of potential extensions is suggested here as example. For each proposal extension it is strongly encouraged to express your interest such that technical feasibility check can be done upfront the call evaluation procedure to ensure feasibility of the proposal.
The consortium is also open to other idea and suggestion which are not listed above, with the only objective to build and expand the capabilities of the TRIANGLE test bed.
Benefit to the applicant: Access to an early 5G E2E test bed in which your technology can be installed, demonstrated, tested and used.
Duration of the extension work
The maximum allowed duration of the work to include the extension is expected to be 6 months. Extensions are required to be supported and functional until the end of the project (End of 2018)
Expected proposal size
Target extensions are around 50,000 Euros to 100,000 Euros, we can accept smaller proposals if they make sense
Total budget for experiments
