Welcome to the future!

The EU-BR FUTEBOL project envisages the creation of a federated control framework to integrate testbeds from Europe and Brazil for network researchers form academia/industry with unprecedented features. Our major goal is to allow the access to advanced experimental facilities in Europe and Brazil for research and education across the wireless and optical domains. To accomplish this, we will dev...
