Aims and Objectives



F-Interop aims and objectives can be summarized as follow:

  • to integrate and extend several European testbed federations with a shared
    “Testbed as a Service”
    interconnecting three European testbeds federations
    (Fed4FIRE, OneLab, IoT Lab), bringing together over 32 testbeds and 4755 nodes.
    It will develop a new architecture model enabling easier access
  • to research and develop online testing tools for the Internet of Things,
    including for interoperability tests, conformance tests, scalability tests, Quality
    of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) tests, and Energy efficiency tests
  • to support IoT standardization and enable closer cooperation with the industry,
    a) through a close collaboration with standards development organizations,
    including ETSI, oneM2M, IETF  and W3C, and
    b) through researching and developing online certification and labelling mechanisms. F-Interop will enable an easier participation of researchers and industry in the standardization process
  • to organize an Open call for SMEs and developers to use and enrich the developed testing
    platform with additional modules and extensions (additional test tools, tests specifications, etc.)
