IEEE 5G and Beyond Testbed Workshop

Nikos Makris participated in the 2nd IEEE 5G testbed workshop, part of the VTC 2018 Spring conference, in Porto, June 3rd, 2018. The objective of this workshop was to bring together developers, practitioners, technical experts and researchers to share experiences and advance the state of the art in all aspects of 5G systems prototyping, evaluation and testing. Giving the increased complexity of next generation of communication systems and skyrocketing development costs, the importance of publicly available testbeds is quickly becoming critical for researchers and developers to get access to state-of-the-art infrastructures in order to prototype and validate their ideas. During the workshop he presented the latest extensions of the NITOS testbed, with respect to 5G experimentation and NFV orchestration of experiments.
