NGI Testbed & Labs

CREATE-NET Center was hosting an experimental facility to foster research and innovation activities for the Next Generation Internet (NGI).

DiVINE (Distributed Virtualized Infrastructure for Next-generation internet Experimentation) is designed to offer a cutting-edge facility to experiment NGI solutions involving multiple technologies (5G, NFV, SDN, IoT, Fog/Edge Computing, Cloud Computing) in selected application domains.



DiVINE is aimed at building a common playground interconnecting a set of different Next Generation Internet labs, including:

  •  an IoT-lab  composed by a federated network leveraging on license-free  LoRaWAN technology
  • a 5G-lab composed by 4G/5G Femto base stations and programmable WiFi access-points
  • a Cloud-lab infrastructure running OpenStack
