  3. 3. PII Pan-European Laboratory Infrastructure Implementation http://www.panlab.net Anastasius Gavras Eurescom GmbH
  4. 4. Approach <ul><li>Create a large scale testing and experimentation facility by integrating existing and emerging testbeds </li></ul><ul><li>Rationale for federating testbeds </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Large-scale testbeds are needed for integrating and validating next-generation network technologies. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The federation of distributed test laboratories and testbeds enables end-to-end interoperability testing of platforms, networks and services. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The federation of laboratories and testbeds helps to reduce the risks and costs of large-scale network infrastructure testing. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. The Panlab project <ul><li>Main goal: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop a vision , roadmap , and legal/administrative framework for the Pan-European Laboratory </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Background: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The idea for the Pan-European Laboratory was born in the context of Eureka Cluster Celticas a way for effective pre-commercial end-to-end testing of services and products </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>European competitiveness in ICT is at stake, as the US (FIND/GENI) and others are developing large testing facilities for the future Internet respectively next-generation networks </li></ul></ul>

Panlab project details <ul><li>Panlabconsortium-11 organisations: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Eurescom (coordinator -supported by Eureka Cluster Celtic), France Telecom, Telefónica, Italtel, Thomson, Alcatel-Lucent, Nokia, Fraunhofer Fokus, DIMES, RAD, University of Quebec </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Supported by the EC as a Specific Support Action under FP6: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Budget:1.3 million euro </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Effort:134 person months </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Start:June 2006 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Duration:24 months </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Building the Pan-European Laboratory
  8. 8. Implementation phases
  9. 9. Discover, compose, provision testing services <ul><li>TEAGLE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a dedicated web-based tool for federated testing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>operated by the organisation’s office(Responsible for the testbed resource coordination and the long term evolution of the federation) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>using Teagle, customers can define and locate specific testbed facilities suitable to their testing needs </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Octopus Network is a combination of pioneering wireless testbeds based in Oulu </li></ul><ul><li>With world-class partners like Nokia , Intel and Alcatel-Lucent , Octopus Network is a global wireless hotspot </li></ul><ul><li>Testing will be a globally increasing business area in the future. We want to provide our customers cost effective access to the latest wireless technologies in closed testing environments </li></ul><ul><li>The core of the Octopus service is a closed operator environment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Remote secure access: VPN,IPSec,SSH </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Octopus services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A real, operator-level IMS infrastructure for third party testers (max. 500 000 subscribers simultaneously) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Development and testing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Application testing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interoperability testing in an authentic operator environment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology consultation </li></ul></ul>Octopus Network
  11. 11. Beta platform <ul><li>provide support and infrastructure for the interconnection of testbeds and demonstrators </li></ul><ul><li>This project is an outcome of the first &quot;IT-summit&quot; (&quot;IT-Gipfel&quot;) held end of 2006. Since then, mainly driven by  Deutsche Telekom Laboratories </li></ul><ul><li>The Beta Platform is targeted at creating a marketplace for service development and testing </li></ul><ul><li>In contrast to other distributed labs like PlanetLab or EmuLab, the distributed testbeds created by way of interconnecting existing labs are not open to the Internet </li></ul>
  12. 12. Open IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) Playground <ul><li>Open testbeds have ever since played a major role for our research activities in terms of result validation and prototype development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is OPEN in a sense that it is in a constant process of evolving. It is open to new partners, new components, new technologies, as well as new concepts and paradigms.  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Our aim is to facilitate the usage of latest technologies in the field of IMS, NGN, SOA, and IPTV </li></ul><ul><li>Type of organisation: Academic institute </li></ul><ul><li>the services offered : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Deliver prototype component implementations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Instantiation of the Open IMS Playground </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interconnection of testbeds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Demo development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unique offering: Open Source IMS Core and build the community around it </li></ul></ul>

  24. 24. FEDERICA at a glance <ul><li>What: European Community co-funded project in its 7 th Framework Program in the area “Capacities - Research Infrastructures” 3.7 MEuro EC contribution, 5.2 ME budget, 461 Man Months </li></ul><ul><li>When: 1st January 2008 - 30 June 2010 (30 months) </li></ul><ul><li>Who: 20 partners , based on stakeholders on network research and management: </li></ul><ul><li>11 National Research and Education Networks, DANTE (GÉANT2), TERENA, 4 Universities, Juniper Networks, 1 small enterprise (MARTEL), 1 research centre (i2CAT) - Coordinator: GARR (Italian NREN) </li></ul><ul><li>Where: Europe-wide e-Infrastructure , open to external connections </li></ul>
  25. 25. FEDERICA Objectives
  26. 26.
  27. 27. FEDERICA Principles <ul><li>1. Create an agnostic and neutral (transparent) infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>2. Create “ slices ” which are a set of (virtual) network and computing resources according to user’s request and are “disruptible” </li></ul><ul><li>3. Provide to the user complete control within a slice down to the lowest possible layer (in particular allow any application and protocol) </li></ul><ul><li>4. Strive/engineer for reproducibility of experiments, i.e. given the same initial conditions, the results of an experiment are the same </li></ul><ul><li>5. Allow slices (if requested) to connect to the general Internet , to access external services/nodes (e.g. for content/delivery, specialized HW) </li></ul><ul><li>6. Ensure isolation between slices maintaining the possibility to cross- connect slides on request </li></ul><ul><li>7. Allow simultaneous use without conflict </li></ul><ul><li>8. Force/be exposed to topology changes (various level of resiliency) </li></ul><ul><li>9. Open to interconnect / federate with other e-Infrastructures </li></ul><ul><li>10. Access granted through a User Policy Board </li></ul>
  28. 28. Access and Use Policies <ul><li>Usage of a FEDERICA slice will be free of charge if no additional equipment is requested </li></ul><ul><li>Interconnection with other infrastructures (e.g. labs) is possible. The cost has to be defined case by case. </li></ul><ul><li>A User Policy Board will receive and approve projects for the use of the infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>Access to the infrastructure is subject to the signature of an “ Acceptable User Policy ”, which includes providing feedback </li></ul><ul><li>The time duration of a single experiment will be in principle limited to facilitate turnover ( 3 months initially, extension possible ) </li></ul><ul><li>Access is open to research groups from academia and private sector with priority to European Community funded projects. </li></ul><ul><li>The code and tool bench produced will be Open Source </li></ul>
