Calling all 5G Mobile Application Developers!

The TRIANGLE testbed is open for applications from now until 14th September 2018 17.00 CET. We are offering SMEs with a mobile application that can clearly benefit from using 5G, the opportunity to test these applications on a state-of-the-art testbed to preview their performance. We have specific funding for this call of €45,000 (including VAT) to support a minimum number of 3 applications with a maximum amount of €15,000 (including VAT) each.

This testbed is located in the University of Malaga but can be accessed remotely. The Testbed enables a preview on how the application would perform in 5G network conditions. It contains Virtual Machines to install servers, provides Mobile Edge Computing capabilities, commercial phones (Android and iOS) to run the app, an extensive set of test cases and many other features. The Testbed provides opportunities to measure Quality of Experience for multi-media applications, in particular, those needing MPEG DASH support, which can be useful for streaming HD video, VR and other applications.

You can use this opportunity to save on your infrastructure costs and get some expert input on how to test your application so that it is 5G ready and future-proofed.

Also, if you have a hardware (such as NB-IoT) or VR application that does not qualify for this funded open call, please get in touch with us as we have a limited availability to accept applications without funding –the testbed can still be used with no charge for now.

Be sure to register your interest with a simple application form.

TRIANGLE 5G Testbed available for testing!

The TRIANGLE testbed is still open for applications until the end of November 2018. We are offering SMEs the opportunity to test their 5G applications and devices on a state-of-the-art testbed. This testbed is located in Malaga University but can be accessed remotely once we have the device or application in question on the testbed. Please make use of this opportunity to save on your infrastructure costs and get some expert input on how to test your device or application so that it is 5G ready for the competition coming along with the launch of 5G networks from 2020.

New features from TNO Extension on the TRIANGLE Testbed

Based in The Hague in the Netherlands, TNO is one of a growing international network comprised of leading scientific institutes, companies with ambitious development profiles, universities and other partners in knowledge. Companies, public-sector bodies and social organisations work with TNO in public-private partnerships Transfer Knowledge designed specifically for SMEs. TNO innovations are transformed into products and into economic activity. https://www.tno.nl/en/

TNO has partnered with TRIANGLE to:

  1. Deliver a universal, scalable cloud platform ready to serve various TRIANGLE testbed users who can fully manage the lifecycle of their network services.
  2. Allow for experimentation with demanding media applications and enhance a content-consumer experience due to the integration with the orchestrated cloud.

Workshop on End-to-end Performance Evaluation of Services, Aplications and Devices in 5G Networks

This workshop is devoted to the dissemination of the results of the project TRIANGLE: 5G applications and devices benchmarking. The efforts for demonstrating the performance of 5G devices, services and apps facing the challenging requirements that 5G poses have been a very active research area during the last year. Moreover, with the release of the first version of 5G NR standard in December 2017, the activities in this field have been intensified. In this sense, there are a wave of initiatives from mobile operators, manufactures and research institutions for demonstrating 5G uses cases (enhanced, ultra-reliable low-latency communications, massive IoT, V2X, etc.) in testbed experiments and trials.

At this workshop we look for a meeting place for the exchange of knowledge, experiences and best-practices learned in the different testbeds and trials deployed all over the world. The workshop proposes the organization of activities such as poster presentations, demos and panels, as well as technical papers and keynotes presentations, to facilitate the exchange of the experiences and views between the attendees. The workshop will cover issues related to performance evaluation of connected verticals, network and components towards an end to end network performance evaluation in 4.5G to 5G technology. Specifically the topics includes, but not limited to, advances in modelling, simulation, testbeds, trials, tools, drive tests, KPI and QoE computation; all of them in the context of the end-to-end performance analysis of mobile applications, services and devices.

Third Open Call for Experimenters in 5G

Triangle announces the third Open Call for experimenters to use the Triangle Testbed. This is an excellent opportunity for App makers, IoT and device makers to get early access to this testing and certification platform. In addition to test automation under a wide range of configurable network scenarios, our recently added and upcoming testbed “extensions” provide a range of opportunities for testing AR/VR and streaming applications. The Testbed can support a wide variety of application and device types, here are some examples of the types of experiments that have already been run on the Testbed. The first wave of this call closes on March 11th. For more details see open call or feel free to get in touch with us at opencall@triangle-project.eu.

TRIANGLE demos at Mobile World Congress

This year, there will be several TRIANGLE partners at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on 26th Feb to 1st March. Dekra will be in Hall 6 Stand 6L21, Keysight will be in Hall 6 Stand 6G30 and Stand 6O3MR. Quamotion will be in Hall 7 Stand 7G71 where they will be giving a demo of mobile testing. Finally, TRIANGLE partner UCL will be present in the 4YFN startup area. Please feel free to come to any of the partner booths and ask for a demo of the TRIANGLE testbed or some information on the testbed. Or contact Niall Roche from UCL on n.roche@ucl.ac.uk to arrange a meeting with him at the event. We would love to see you there!

TRIANGLE Testing Solution for Android xReality Applications

Today a number of Virtual Reality apps are entering the marketplace. However, developers still do not have an efficient solution to test them under different radio and network conditions, in particular on a 5G network. The TRIANGLE testbed uses the new solution from DEKRA to test Virtual Reality and other Realities (xR) for Android applications. The solution uses a robotic arm and a testing controller and is designed for automatic testing. It can be used for estimation of xR Apps Quality of Experience, for throughput and battery usage evaluation of xR Apps and for device quality & assurance.

Test Center Network with Qualcomm and TRIANGLE

The Qualcomm TCN (Test Center Network) is a network of device test centers/houses to which Qualcomm provides services and technical support. As part of this technical support Qualcomm provides focused technical training. A Test Center Network Training Session took place in Málaga, Spain the 24 and 25 of January this year for the first time.

As both DEKRA and Keysight are TCN members we took the opportunity to invite Qualcomm representatives to visit the TRIANGLE test bed hosted by the University of Málaga. The visit included the Ada Byron Premises and the microwave and millimetre wave laboratories of the School of Engineering.

A demo of the TRIANGLE test bed was performed. The TRIANGLE portal was used to configure test campaigns in different predefined end-to-end network scenarios and a video app running on a Samsung Galaxy S7 device was tested. Qualcomm representatives inquired about various details of the orchestrator and results processing mode as well as the capabilities of the testbed.

“We are very impressed with what we saw today,” said Vikram Malhotra, Director of Program Management, Qualcomm Technologies Inc. “Network and device testing will be instrumental in ensuring successful commercialization of 5G in 2019.”
