Goals of StarBED4

1. Toward to IoT testbed to enable to evaluate a relation of familiar device and us

Because people will have a many chance to touch network technology more and more, we believe the platform that we can evaluate relation of human and network technology deeply is needed.
NICT has variety of research fields and platform about ICT.  We will provide a testbed to be able to evaluate variety of phenomenon by cooperating these platform.

In StarBED4 Project, we construct "space" that many IoT devices exist using a Internet and radio network emulation techniques having developed until StarBED3.  To emulate a IoT devices because of strong relation between these devices and human action needs emulating or simulating a tempreture space that IoT devices are connected, in addition to human action.  We will integrate these space with the other evaluation platform provided by NICT and realize it as one testbed.

2. Process Innovation in Network R&D

We research, develop and provide "Experimenting, Verification, and Deployment Preparation Infrastructure" + "Knowledge Infrastructure."

  • Experimenting, Verification, Deployment Preparation Infrastructure
    • Following the process for maturing technology: from theoretical experimenting through to product development and preparations for deployment
  • Knowledge Base = Growing out of and away from "test"-bed
    • Accumulating knowledge: building up both experimenting and verification templates, and datasets
    • Sharing knowledge: standardizing application program interfaces (API) and datasets for collaborations with testbed counterparts
    • Developing knowledge: exhibiting testbeds and real-world oriented application program interfaces (API) and datasets
    • Creating knowledge: strengthening user interfaces with testbeds, applying them to personal/staff training

We are conducting research and development activities to achieve all of these goals, and also establishing operation methods and models.

As the result, we are putting them into practice to improve innovation in the development of processes and of industrial formats to produce network products.

  • Moving from appliance and products component technologies towards supplying complete solutions
  • Highly efficient development (R&D budgets, TTM*)
       *: Abbreviation of "Time to Market"
