  4. 4. 4 - F-Interop Meetup, London The Challenges ●  Interoperability requires tests, validation and certification ¢  Conformance ■  Test against reference implementations ¢  Interoperability ■  Test against other vendor implementations ¢  Performance ■  How protocols can be improved and scale?
  5. 5. 5 - F-Interop Meetup, London The Barriers ●  SMEs are driven by time-to-market ●  Standards are driven by large organizations ¢  If not open, membership might be otherwise expensive ●  Tests require physical meetings and complex logistics ¢  Plugfest ¢  Managing confidentiality of information ●  Certification process might be long and costly
  6. 6. 6 - F-Interop Meetup, London F-Interop Project ●  EU H2020 F-Interop project is researching and developing online remote interoperability and performance test tools for emerging IoT-related technologies ●  It aims to: ¢  Support researchers communities, SMEs involved ¢  Integrating and extending several European testbeds ¢  Researching and developing online testing tools for IoT ¢  Developing online certification and labelling mechanisms
  7. 7. 7 - F-Interop Meetup, London The Testing Life Cycle ●  Test Description (TD) ¢  Describe the test scenario, any language ●  Test Script (TS) ¢  Set of actions to implement the scenario ¢  Exchange of information between IUTs (interoperability) and IUT and test system (conformance) ●  Test Analysis (TA) ¢  Analyze, compare messages, generate verdict (pass or fail)
  8. 8. 8 - F-Interop Meetup, London F-Interop Current Base Platform
  9. 9. 9 - F-Interop Meetup, London The F-Interop Platform Roles ●  Testbed owner ¢  Who integrates a testing facilities with the F-Interop platform (more devices, more infrastructure, etc) ●  Platform contributor ¢  Who provides tools for supporting the testing life cycle of supported protocols or new ones ●  Platform user ¢  Who uses the platform and provides new TD, TS, TA 9
  10. 10. 10 - F-Interop Meetup, London Supported Protocols ●  6LoWPAN and RPL, ●  6LoWPAN and supported functionalities ●  6TiSCH ●  OneM2M ●  Web of Things (partially) ●  ….
  11. 11. 11 - F-Interop Meetup, London “Currently” Federated Testbeds 
 Capabilities ●  Fed4FIRE (http://www.fed4fire.eu/testbeds/) federates 24 FIRE+ testbeds, bringing together cloud, IoT, wireless, wireless mobile, LTE, cognitive radio, 5G, openflow, SDN, NFV and network emulation technologies ●  OneLab (https://onelab.eu/) federates testbeds for the future Internet, including IoT, cognitive radio, wireless and overlay network technologies ●  IoT lab9 (http://www.iotlab.eu/) federates crowd sourcing and crowd sensing testbeds, including smart campus, smart building and smart office testbed (low end IoT device, sensor platforms)
