May 2017 TRIANGLE Newsletter #5

This month we announce the next wave of open calls for 5G developers, device makers and operators in the TRIANGLE* project! Find out more about how to apply in this newsletter and on our TRIANGLE website

The newsletter follows with the news of the extension provided by TNO, a description of the testbed and the UK government strategy in terms of 5G and how it is related to the TRIANGLE project.

*The TRIANGLE project is developing a framework to help app developers and device manufacturers in the evolving 5G sector to test and benchmark new mobile applications, devices, and services utilizing existing and extended FIRE testbeds. This framework will evaluate Quality of Experience - QoE of new mobile applications, services and devices designed to operate in the future 5G mobile broadband networks -and enable certification for new mobile applications and devices.

Need more information? Check out the TRIANGLE website, have a look at our white paper on 5G Benchmarking-as-a-Service and check out our video which introduces the TRIANGLE project.


Second Wave of TRIANGLE Open Calls Now Open!

The TRIANGLE project held its first set of Open Calls towards the end of 2016. We are now proud to say the second wave of open calls for experiments and extensions are now open. These Open Calls or funding round, are aimed at 5G operators, device manufacturers and applications developers wishing to test and benchmark on a ready made 5G testbed as well as those companies and institutions who might wish to extend the testbed with their own set of capabilities.

After months of work and preparation, the TRIANGLE testbed now has a set of exciting new features for our experimenters. Read more...


TNO adds NFV and Streaming Optimization Capabilities to the TRIANGLE testbed

The expected ability of 5G network to deliver advanced, chained services for multiple tenants in the on-demand way will introduce an unavoidable complexity. To assure meeting the high bandwidth and low latency targets, 5G is foreseen to be largely a softwarized network, using advanced MANO (MAnagement aNd Orchestration) functionalities.  Any testbed which wants to offer realistic conditions for 5G test needs to provide experimenters with the ability to orchestrate real-time network and cloud resources for 5G services.

TRIANGLE is an initiative to be built on as part of UK 5G strategy

The UK government recently released it’s strategy for supporting the rollout of 5G, this includes provisions for funding to support testbeds, and other support initiatives. The strategy lists a number of ongoing initiatives that the government will collaborate with, and build upon, to achieve it’s strategic goals. Read more...

Upcoming Events

EuCNC 12 - 15 June 2017

TRIANGLE will have a booth at EuCNC 2017 where we will be promoting our current round of Open Calls. A demo of the testbed showing the UXM wireless test set with the Evolved Packet Core capabilities will be available at the booth. Do come and ask for information on the TRIANGLE testbed and the Open Calls for experiments and extensions.

5G World 13 - 15 June 2017
UCL will be in attendance at this event in ExCeL, London, representing TRIANGLE. If you would like to meet up with us at this event to hear about the open calls and testbed available to 5G device manufacturers, operators or application developers, please feel free to get in touch with us in advance here.
There are six partners in the TRIANGLE Project: Keysight Technologies, Belgium/Denmark, University of Malaga (UMA), Spain, RedZinc, Ireland, University College London (UCL), UK; Dekra, Spain and Quamotion, Belgium.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 688712.
