The TRIANGLE project will have a number of Open Calls, commencing in October 2016 and concluding in mid 2018.
Type of participants: The profile of call participants is SMEs that are active in research and/or development and testing of applications, services, or devices that could require high speed, low latency, or high reliability that would benefit from 5G and could benefit from benchmarking their apps, devices or Services. The target recipient would be interested in testing target applications or devices on the TRIANGLE Test Bed. Applicable areas could include but are not limited to gaming, high definition video streaming and Augmented and Virtual Reality. The rules of participation are the same as for any H2020 proposal.
Experiment description: The TRIANGLE Test bed will measure many low-level aspects of mobile devices and applications including the impact of power drain, network latency and various types of network mobility. The Test bed contains a number of powerful mobile testing and emulation devices to test different network conditions. Part of the Test bed features tools for automation of app deployment and configuration and includes the ability to execute automated test scripts. Experiments are expected to make use of the Test bed functionality to test mobile apps and devices under different network conditions.
The consortium is also open to other ideas and suggestions which may not be listed above, with the objective of building and expanding the capabilities of the Triangle testbed. In particular, the consortium is interested in technologies that can help the testbed achieve the performance identified by 5G NGMN use cases, contained in the white paper https://www.ngmn.org/5g-white-paper.html. This specifies 14 new use cases with various targeted KPI User Experienced Data Rate for uplink and downlink speeds, for end-to-end latency and for mobility. Devices and applications testers from open calls need to target these use cases.
Benefits to the applicant: As there are no live networks with 5G features yet applicants can save the cost of making their own experimentation platform. Triangle is a unique platform to test some of the features that will be provided by 5G, so the new services and products will be ready when 5G networks become available.
Triangle members will provide support for employing your application or device into the testbed and the service is free to access for the duration of the experiment. Triangle certification will indicate how your application performs under a number of test conditions and compares to benchmark devices and applications that have similar features.
