Communications technologies offer information gathering on anything, we are building quantified Earth and quantifying its civilization. Environment, factories, plants, urban life, healthy life, safe aging, security of any kind benefit from realtime monitoring services which are reliable and provide data in secure and trustworthy way.
FIT offers large-scale state-of-the-art wireless, sensing and mobility infrastructures for any builder of tomorrow's systems and services, who wish to try out, test and validate his/her solution before implementing it in real-life. FIT platforms are located across France: in Paris, Lille, Strasbourg, Lyon, Grenoble and Sophia Antipolis. They offer easy access, a library of tools and online support for wireless and wireless sensor networks including robots. FIT consists of almost 3000 nodes grouped in various topologies, consisting of WSN430, M3, A8, and Icarus nodes and supporting FreeRTOS, Contiki, Riot, TinyOS, OpenWSN and Linux operating systems. You can even plug your own devices in our testbeds and run your tests there as well.
Depending on your needs and level of support you can either manage yourset up and configurations autonomously or get support from our experts on anything ranging from the brainstorming of your testing needs all the way to the benchmarked test results and conformance guarantees.
The FIT testbed at UPMC (FIT NITOS Lab) has now a functioning HP Moonshot platform, having 45 8-core ARM servers with 64 GB of RAM each, 120 TB of SATA flash storage. The platform also integrates two 45XGc switches with OpenFlow support, one of which is available to the user to build his experiment network. A cloud instance on this platform is available to any researcher who wishes, on demand by contacting us at the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the first FIT IoT-LAB workshop last year in Grenoble, which hosted 70 attendees, FIT IoT-Lab will be hosting a second edition at the Lille platform on October 14 & 15, 2015. The workshop will take place at Inria Lille - Nord Europe.
This workshop has the dual purpose of both allowing exchanges on research as well as presenting talks and tutorials on various topics on the IoT domain. It specifically targets experimentation through testing, verification, deployment, integration, management and federation of experimental platforms. The workshop will bring together people from several areas of research in academia and industry, providing for an exchange of ideas about the present and future of IoT.
The first day of the workshop will be dedicated to conference sessions; while the second day will be for tutorials on how to experiment on FIT IoT-LAB platforms.
More details, including the registration link, can be found on the FIT IoT-Lab website at https://www.iot-lab.info/workshop-iot-oct2015/.
Registration is free and mandatory for logistic purposes.
Scientific director, Dr. Timur Friedman, presented the OneLab federation within the framework of FIT-Equipex at the 22nd Taiwan-France Industrial Cooperation Consultation Meeting in Taipei. Prof. Friedman’s presentation focused on the FIT IoT-Lab platforms and the benefits available to industries through experimental testing on Internet of Things testbeds. The presence of OneLab at the ICCM follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between FIT partner UPMC and the Institute for Information Industry (III) Taiwan. The signing of this MoU and the increased collaboration between FIT and its Taiwanese partners will lead to the incorporation of III’s IoT testbed into the OneLab federation.
