The 32nd edition of SBRC (Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems), held in Florianópolis (Brazil) from 5-9 May 2014, featured the official launching of FIBRE testbed to the research community. ...
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:
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 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.
