IEEE Software Defined Networks (IEEE SDN), a cross-society IEEE worldwide programme addressing the main techno-economic aspects concerning SDN and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), and EIT Digital, the leading European digital innovation and entrepreneurial education organisation driving Europe’s digital transformation, jointly launched today an international Open Testbed Community (OTC) aimed at stimulating 5G innovation.

This breakthrough came about following a workshop on Federated Testbeds spearheaded by leaders from the IEEE SDN Initiative and EIT Digital. The workshop that took place in San Francisco in early May 2016 culminated in a significant intent to start an Open, Federated Testbed (OFTB) by interconnecting three existing centers of expertise based in the USA and Europe.
