A Comprehensive, One-Stop-Shop Testbed for Future Seamless Communication Technologies
Advanced ICT platforms (including Cloud, M2M, SDN, NFV and Mobile Broadband), tools and cutting edge expertise for testing, monitoring, test control, remote usage and federation with external testbeds.
The Future Seamless Communication (FUSECO) Playground offers a unique, independent and open testbed for research and prototype development of mobile broadband communication and service platform. The flexible and modular design of the FUSECO Playground allows fast prototyping and simplified Proof-of-Concept (PoC) validation spanning from devices over access- and core network technologies to services domains of physical or virtualized telecommunication environments. Integrated multi-access network environments (DSL/WLAN/2G/3G/4G-LTE/LTE-A), sensor networks, SDN/OpenFlow&NFV cloud environments help to shape the vision of a Future Internet in areas like Smart Cities, Automotive, eHealth, eGovernment, Smart Metering and more.

The FUSECO Playground covers the entire technology spectrum of a Next Generation Mobile Network - from end devices across various access & core networks up to an open set of application platforms, supporting data, multimedia streaming and mobile cloud applications, including mobility and handover testing. It integrates various state of the art wireless broadband networks into a 3GPP Evolved Packet Core (EPC) prototype platform. It also features an Open IMS Core solution including relevant enablers to gain experience with IMS-based Rich Communication Services (RCS), WebRTC and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services. In addition the following Toolkits are supported:
The FUSECO Playground and its Toolkits comply with 3GPP, OMA, ETSI and OneM2M specifications. External internet or cloud-based service platforms can be connected to this testbed in order to prototype new service concepts end to end across various network topologies.
