Equipex FIT and SLICES

Digital transformation is at the heart of our society in all the activities we develop. This evolution is made possible by the progressive deployment of a sophisticated service infrastructure characterized by its size, diversity and articulation with the various players. The result is a system of systems whose availability, reliability, security and performance challenge us in order to make it a strong asset of sovereignty, innovation and industrial competitiveness.

FIT (Future Internet of Things) is an advanced open test platform that provides a wide choice of technologies (Internet of Things, Wireless and Cloud) and also a single interface through which to access the system and a large number of configuration and monitoring tools. 

SLICES is a European initiative to propose the first test platform providing a scientific instrument to our research community, targeting the ESFRI EU framework. Countries formally supporting SLICES are numerous (14 EU countries). I am coordinating two EU funded projects related to the SLICES roadmap, SLICES-DS dealing with its design and SLICES-SC aiming at engaging the community.



EMPOWER is a Horizon 2020 funded project. It has the ambition to accelerate the joint development between the EU and the US, related to advanced wireless platforms targeting the new connectivity frontiers beyond 5G. EMPOWER targets the creation of a joint EU-US advanced wireless ecosystem. 

Our objectives are:
• Engage with the EU-US communities working on Advanced Wireless Platforms research and development, in particular the US NSF PAWR and the EU H2020/FP9.
• Develop and recommend a common EU-US strategic collaboration agenda on Advanced Wireless Platforms.

An important output of EMPOWER will be in the form of recommendations on technologies and experimentation methodologies for future wireless experimentation objectives. EMPOWER will promote the use of test platforms and work with the community to make experiments simpler. 

Empower is addressing topics related to open source software components tu support network disaggregation, platforms need to support AI functionalities, technology roadmap.


NFV Optimization 

We deal with the new challenges related to the deployment of Virtual Network Functions. There are important questions to address related to the best location of these functions, their migration, routing and congestion control.

Another specific issue is dealing with efficient tools to measure NFV resource consumtion and performance. Contributions can be found in the publication section.
