5GINFIRE is a three years Research and Innovation action / project under the EU programme Horizon 2020. The main goal of 5GINFIRE is to build and operate an open, and extensible 5G NFV-based reference (Open5G-NFV) ecosystem of experimental facilities that not only integrates existing FIRE facilities with new vertical-specific ones, but also lays down the foundations for instantiating fully softwarised architectures of vertical industries and experimenting with them.
