FUTEBOL - Orchestrated Optical/Wireless Experiments Across Brazil and Europe
This paper presents the experimentation facilities provided by the European Union-Brazil project "FUTEBOL - Federated Union of Telecommunications Research Facilities for an EU-Brazil Open Laboratory", from the point of view of the experimenter. The FUTEBOL testbeds to provide experimentation capabilities for optical-wireless experimentation, which is crucial for the development of 5G technologies. The main offering of FUTEBOL is, thus, to be able to set up an experiment accross many network domains – be it optical, wireless, packet or cloud –, and to orchestrate them using tools such as COPA and ABNO. Further, FUTEBOL provides a set of services that can be instantiated with very little effort, in order to compose complex 5G experiments in reduced time.
