Testbed Working Group
The Testbed Working Group (WG) helps collaborate with existing 5G testbeds to make those available to industry & academia to ease deployment of 5G and accelerate development of next-generation networks (e.g., 6G). Collaboration with the vendor and research communities will result in expansion upon existing testbeds towards federated development of testbeds for next-generation networks. The working group has established stronger relationships with IEEE & ITU’s standardization study group.
In addition to informing the community on the capabilities and usage modalities of existing testbeds, the WG also aims to solicit contributions and promote discussion on co-development and co-deployment of future experimental platforms for 5G and beyond.
Considering recent developments around the world, the WG has identified priorities on next-generation networks’ testbed requirements. End-use devices for both human and machine users are anticipated to see dramatic changes with emergence of next-generation wireless networks. In addition to the previous requirements, the WG has highlighted requirements and a roadmap for end-use (user equipment) hardware and compatible software as well as candidate spectrum bands for future networks.
