This document describes the usage of the test bed for carrying out specific on demand activities. It is intended for a general audience interested in the federated test bed

Handbook: Guidelines and Rules for on-demand access to the SoftFIRE Testbed

This document is devoted to internal actors for the definition of how to shae the resources of the federated test bed and to external actors that are interested in accessing the testbed facilities for experimentation and developments

Standardization issues raised by experimentation on SoftFIRE

This document is intended for a general audience with particular focus on standardization bodies. It presents the issues raised by experimentations that could be exposed to the standardization activities.

SoftFIRE (v2) usage manual for NFV/SDN/MEC and 5G experimenters

This document is intended for the experimenters of the platform. It contains update on the way to use the federated test bed

Report on second and third Waves of experiments on the SoftFIRE test bed and Global assessment of the experimentation facilities (including Wave 2 and 3 and Challenge results)

This document is for a wider audience (internal stakeholders, experimenters and general public). It describes the results of the experimentations carried out in SoftFire.

Project Final Report

This is for a general audience. It describes the projects results in the large.

KPIs for evaluating and assessing the features of the Testbed

The set of KPIs is for determining how the platform is fulfilling the requirements of experimenters and owners. This is an internal input to the evaluation deliverables. It is an external input to Operators and other stakeholders that will need to measure their platforms

Enhanced SoftFire service enablement operations and usage

This report is intended for the project stakeholders and for experimenters and in perspective all the actors interested in experimentation in SDN/NFV and 5G. It evaluates the results of two years running of the project focussing on issues and possible solutions.
