Enabling SDN ExperiMentAtion in WiReless Testbeds exploiting Future Internet Infrastructure in South KoRea and Europe (SMARTFIRE)
Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The main target at which SMARTFIRE aims is the design and implementation of a shared experimental facility spanning different islands located in Europe (EU) and South Korea (KR). This large scaled facility will promote joint experimentation among EU and KR experimenters, encouraging them to conceive and implement innovative protocols, able to take advantage of the current leading network technologies. Existing testbed infrastructures in EU and KR, already featuring WiFi enabled nodes, wireless sensors and supporting WiMax, LTE and OpenFlow technologies, are going to be extended and federated in the experimental, as well as the control plane. These two directions are going to be supported by the leading experimental frameworks adapted by most EU testbeds, the cOntrol and Management Framework (OMF) and the Slice Federation Architecture (SFA). The OMF framework, currently supporting control and experimentation in wireless islands, is going to be expanded, in order to support experimentation with OpenFlow switches, thus integrating wireless withOpenFlow testbeds. Moreover, unique features, only existing in the KR testbeds will be integrated into OMF, in order to unleash the hidden potential of experimenting with heterogeneous resources. The federation in the control plane that allows assignment of multiple heterogeneous resources under a single slice is going to be developed through the extensions of SFA. Interconnection of the aforementioned islands will take advantage of the GEANT network, in the case of the EU research sites, while the respective KOREN/KREONET will be utilized by the KR sites. The two currently disjoint networks are going to be interconnected via the Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN3/TEIN4) and the Global Ring Network for Advanced Application Development (GLORIAD). Finally, SMARTFIRE aims at the implementation of various pilot use cases, designed to demonstrate the power of the EU-KR shared Future Internet experimental facility.
