FIBRE exhibition in ICT 2013

FIBRE was exhibited in the international ExpoDome in ICT 2013 in Vilnius.

The main goal of the FIBRE project is the design, implementation and validation of a shared Future Internet research facility, supporting the joint experimentation of European and Brazilian researchers. In order to achieve this goal the project will carry out four main activities:

  • The development and operation of a new experimental facility in Brazil, including the setup of equipment to support experimentation with various technologies (fixed layer 2 and layer 3, wireless, optical) as well as the design and implementation of a control framework to automate the use and operation of the testbed.
  • The development and operation of a Future Internet facility in Europe based on enhancements and the federation of two existing infrastructures: OFELIA and OneLab. Two OFELIA islands (i2CAT and University of Bristol (UNIVBRIS)) and the UTH's NITOS testbed will be enhanced by i) adding more physical resources (servers, OpenFlow-enabled switches and access points) to be able to cope with a bigger number ofusers and different use cases, ii) improving its respective control frameworks (based on the OFELIA control framework and OMF) and iii) adding more manpower to operate the facilities.
  • The federation of the Brazilian and European experimental facilities, both at the physical connectivity and control framework level, to support the provisioning of slices using resources from both testbeds.
  • The design and implementation of pilot applications of public utility that showcase the power of a shared Europe-Brazil Future Internet experimental facility.


OpenFlow Architecture and OCF

OpenFlow enables networks to evolve, by giving a remote controller the power to modify the behavior of network devices, through a well-defined "forwarding instruction set".

OFELIA Control Framework (OCF) automates the experiment setup in the OFELIA OpenFlow facility. The experimenter is able to plan the experiment scenario through a WebUI. OFELIA CF allows, on one side, allocating flows in an OpenFlow-enabled switches network, and on the other, managing VMs in dedicated servers to use as endpoints or controllers of this flow.

OMF Framework

OMF provides tools to describe, instrument, and execute your experiments. It also provides services to manage, share and federate your testbed resources.



NITOS consists of nodes based on commercial Wifi cards and Linux open source drivers. The control and management of the tesbed is done using the cOntrol and Management Framework (OMF) open-source software. NITOS testbed is deployed at the exterior of the University of Thessaly (UTH) campus building


The OFELIA facility is based on OpenFlow, a currently emerging networking technology that allows virtualization and control of the network environment through secure and standardized interfaces.



  • Federate the Brazilian and European facilities, to allow researchers to use resources of both testbeds in the same experiment.
  • Showcase the potential of the facility by demonstrating experimental network-enabled applications deployed on top of the federated facilities resources.
  • Enhance the collaboration and exchange of knowledge between European and Brazilian researchers in the field of Future Internet.
