Self-Net over PII testbed

Category: News

The successful demonstration of the use case on "Testing end-to-end Self-Management in Wireless Future Internet Environment" is documented in the following flash video.


The Self-NET project has designed the architecture and the software for communication networks self-management based on the so called closed control loop or Monitor-Decide-Execute Cycle. The scope of this use case was to experiment on the improvement of QoS features (e.g., packet loss, delay, jitter) using the Self-NET software for self-management over a live network environment and exploiting monitoring and configuration capabilities that different administrative domains provide (i.e. access network and service layer). The effectiveness and the feasibility of various parameters optimization of existing network protocols avoiding manual effort was also tested.

The testbed for the execution of the use case was deployed by Panlab/PII.

Testbeds and Research Infrastructures, Development of Networks and Communities

The TridentCom 2010 book "Testbeds and Research Infrastructures, Development of Networks and Communities" has just been published. It contains the best papers that have been selected and presented at the conference from 18 to 20 May 2010 in Berlin.

More than 100 experts attended the conference that provided a forum to explore existing and planned testbed concepts, infrastructures, and tools for addressing the research and business challenges of ICT convergence. The technical programme represented a snapshot of the best of breed of international research on testbeds and research infrastructures conducted in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Australia. The strong technical programme during the three days brought together researchers from across the world that presented and discussed their latest results. Out of more than 100 submitted contributions the programme committee finally selected after a peer review process 15 full papers, 26 practices papers and 22 posters. Overall the presented contributions originate from 22 nations underlining the world-wide scope and significance of the conference.

PII wins Future Internet Award

Category: News

The EU-funded research project PII has won the Future Internet Award for the best European Future Internet initiative that is currently running and nearing completion. PII coordinator Anastasius Gavras from Eurescom received the award on behalf of the project at an official ceremony within the closing plenary of the Future Internet Assembly (FIA) in Ghent on 17 December 2010.

The second Future Internet Award went to the EU-funded StratAG research project in the category ‘best new initiative that is about to start’. The project acronym stands for ‘Mobile Spatial Interaction of the Future Internet of Things’.

The two winners in the first edition of the Future Internet Award were selected from 32 submissions.


The judging panel consisted of six senior representatives from the ICT industry and from politics. The panel had given PII and StratAG the highest values on ten criteria, including, for example, innovative use of technologies, inclusion, excellence. The Future Internet Award has been organised by the ceFIMS Coordination Action in order to acknowledge projects of great potential to advance the Future Internet and innovate products and services.


PII, the Pan-European Laboratory Infrastructure Implementation project, is part of the FIRE intiative on Future Internet Research and Experimentation. The FIRE concept and especially PII are widely recognised beyond the boundaries of Europe. Recently, the Canadian research programme CANARIE launched a similar testbed federation concept, explicitly referring to PII.


What is Teagle?

As of September 2009, the project finalised the first working version of Teagle.

  • You can download a undefinedpresentation that explains the working features and future plans
  • To get detailed information on how to use teagle, you are invited to watch the undefinedvideos

FIRE and Living Labs

PII participates at the conference "FIRE and Living Labs – Future Internet by the people" which is held in association with the Swedish EU presidency in autumn 2009 where two strong communities meet and exchange experiences: The FIRE community focusing on Future Internet Research and Experimentation and the Living Labs community with the mission to engage people, users as co-creators in the development of new successful products and services.

The conference and the workshops are open to everybody interested in research on Future Internet in the world, and in particular to SAC, FIRE and FIA (Future Internet Assembly) members.

PII demonstration Celtic event

During the undefinedEureka Celtic event that was held in Paris on 11-12 March 2009, the visitors had the opportunity to see a live demonstration of on-demand tesbed provisioning capabilities. At the undefinedexhibition space, PII participants from Germany and Greece showed how a testbed, spanning multiple networks, was enriched by dynamically adding desired functionality, by simply deploying needed components via the Teagle portal.

The Teagle portal allows the customer to look-up and dynamically deploy selected testbed configurations and testbed functionality.
