The European initiative for the Future Internet Public-Private-Partnership (FI-PPP) is intended to expedite the development and adoption of FI technologies in Europe.
The project XIFI (eXperimental Infrastractures for the Future Internet) focuses on the part of the initiative regarding FI infrastructure, with NEUROPUBLIC being a powerful partner of the project in Southeast Europe.
Future Internet (FI) is a range of research and industry activities aiming at contributing to the development of current Internet technologies, as well as the development of innovation in various business sectors by deploying such advanced technologies.
The initiative for the Future Internet Public-Private-Partnership (FI-PPP) was founded in 2011 by the European Committee and intents to accelerate the development and adoption of FI technologies in Europe, providing a common platform that supports large-scale trials. It is implemented in different business fields and utilizes a wide range of FI infrastructure.
In this context, the XIFI project (eXperimental Infrastractures for the Future Internet) is focused on the part of the FI-PPP initiative regarding specifically FI infrastructure, with a view of paving the way for an integrated European market for the FI-PPP services and FI facilities, allowing their wide use.
The creation of a viable FI infrastructure federation that offers FI-PPP services is a milestone, since it overcomes the breaking down of the European IF infrastructure and platforms to test beds that are not able to conduct large scale tests individually. At the same time, it paves the way for the widespread deployment of FI – PPP services and applications.
Within the framework of the project, NEUROPUBLIC has integrated its DATA CENTER (NP DC) to the XIFI infrastructure federation. NP DC is a very modern and technologically excellent Data Center founded in March 2013, aspiring to support XIFI’s offer to southeast Europe, a region not fully covered by XIFI nodes yet.
NEUROPUBLIC is a powerful partner of XIFI in southeast Europe thanks to its comprehensive and specialized technical know-how, high-quality technological background, highly effective technical equipment, a vast number of user subscriptions and strong business partnership in the area.
