A quick summary of 5 5GinFIRE Testbeds
The global 5G Telefonica Open Innovation Laboratory (5TONIC) has been established in Madrid (Spain) as a leading European hub for knowledge sharing and industry collaboration in the area of 5G technologies. The laboratory provides an open research and innovation ecosystem for industry and academia that will promote joint project development, joint entrepreneurial ventures, discussion fora, and a site for events and conferences, all in an international environment of the highest impact. 5TONIC will also serve to evaluate and demonstrate the capabilities and interoperation of pre-commercial 5G equipment, services and applications. Currently, the 5TONIC laboratory has ten members: Telefonica, Institute IMDEA Networks, Ericsson, Intel, Commscope, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Cohere Technologies, InterDigital, Altran and RedHat.

IT-AV AUTOMOTIVE TESTBED
The vehicular network which serves the base automotive use case consists of On-Board Units (OBUs) in the vehicles and roadside units (RSUs) connected to the Internet through an Ethernet interface. The vehicles connect among each other via standard IEEE 802.11p/ WAVE links, and are connected to the RSUs and the Internet through IEEE 802.11p/ WAVE, IEEE 802.11g/ WiFi or cellular links.

Bristol Smart City Testbed
Given the critical importance of security in cities, innovations advances in wireless communication system are increasingly improving the safety of city inhabitants. New services such as audio and video monitoring of public areas and automated municipality rule infraction detection allow a quicker response to threats and anomalies prevent reoccurrence. Based on this context UNIVBRIS has deploying a smart city safety use case, as a proof of concept, to identify suspicious activities in the city and demonstrate the capabilities of Bristol Smart City Testbed . The basic components of this use case are listed below and they are connected together to the Internet through a WiFi Interface.

UFU Future Internet Testbed
UFU Future Internet Testbed is a unique infrastructure in Brasil that was built the by participation in the projects OFELIA (http://www.fp7-ofelia.eu/), FIWARE (www.fiware.org) and also the association with the FIBRE project (http://fibre-ict.eu). The infrastructure is located in the Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU) at the Campus Santa Mônica in Uberlândia, MG, Brasil. At UFU it is possible to run different 5G related applications on different verticals, but considering the particular resources available on edge, there are several possibilities for the Smart City vertical integrating applications and 5G oriented networks.

NITOS is a highly heterogeneous testbed, located in the premises of University of Thessaly in Volos, Greece. The facility is an addition to the 5GInFIRE testbed offering, accepted as a 1st Open Call infrastructure project. Through the integration of the NITOS testbed, 5GinFIRE users will have the opportunity to take advantage of several highly programmable cutting-edge resources for wireless networking (such as mmWave, SDR, LTE networks and WiFi), bundled with Software Defined Networking and Cloud Computing resources. The incorporation of this new equipment will allow the evaluation of several vertical applications for 5G over the 5GinFIRE infrastructure, including cloud based Virtual/Augmented Reality applications, wireless eHealth critical applications, wireless home entertainment, and Smart City experimentation.

Iris - the reconfigurable radio testbed at Trinity College Dublin provides virtualized radio hardware, software virtualisation, Cloud-RAN, Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), and Software Defined Networking technologies to support the experimental investigation of the interplay between 5G radio and future networks. Our facility pairs underlying flexible radio and computations resources with various hypervisors in the form of software radio frameworks, virtualized network functions (VNFs), and network slicing capabilities to realize various research and testing configurations. These platforms are connected to a private computational cloud, allowing experimenters to deploy an array of computational environments. To expose the functionality of these platforms for a variety of applications, we employ a variety of radio hypervisors that freely enable prototyping of wireless systems, as exemplified by GNURadio. These radio hypervisors combined with dynamic distributed network functions supported by containers, enable the realization of heterogeneous radio platforms that can support malleable and adaptable networks. Iris is ideally equipped to investigate the combination of network slicing, virtualisation functions, and physical layer approaches into coexisting and coherent next-generation commercial networks, including, but not limited to, 5G.
