The main technical objective of 5GinFIRE is to build and operate an open and extensible 5G NFV-based reference (Open5G-NFV) ecosystem of experimental facilities that not only integrates existing FIRE facilities with new vertical-specific ones, but also lays down the foundations for instantiating fully softwarized architectures of vertical industries and experimenting with them. The initial instantiation of the Open5G-NFV ecosystem was targeted to the automotive vertical industry requirements, addressed across state-of-the-art 5G infrastructures. However, it is as generic as possible in order to host other verticals applications.
In alignment with the overall project objectives 5GINFIRE is organising a competitive open call targeting external organizations, including industry, SMEs, research institutions, and academia, interested in performing experiments on the top of the infrastructure provided by 5GinFIRE. In order to further improve the 5GinFIRE ecosystem and add new needed functionalities for experimenters, the open call mechanism is used to involve third parties, which are able to provide the needed additional infrastructures and functionalities. Therefore this 5GinFIRE open call targets the following types of experimenters and facility providers:
Total of 375,000€ for proposals in Category 1 is available for this Open Call.
Total of 180,000€ for proposals in Category 2-a is available for this Open Call.
Total of 250,000€ for proposals in Category 2-b is available for this Open Call.
Complete Open Call announcement can be find in the attached document and further detailed information is available on the 5GINFIRE project website at https://5ginfire.eu/.
