The flourishing of user driven demand, the heterogeneity of networks, the multiplicity of new devices, all mean that the Internet as we know it is reaching a saturation point. One of the main challenges of Future Internet research is to address the surge in complexity that service and network developers are facing. Building on top of the on-going actions to support large-scale experimentation for Future Internet protocols, the TEFIS project brings evaluation processes one step further.
TEFIS provides an open platform to support experimentations at large-scale of resource demanding Internet services in conjunction with upcoming Future Internet networking technologies and user-oriented living labs. It will act as a single access point to a variety of existing and next generation of experimental facilities, offering:
Combining the efforts of the software and service industry, the FIRE community and the user-centric Living Labs, TEFIS will foster research and business communities.
TEFIS has received EC research funding.
