The aim of the project is to design and build a large infrastructure for experimental research on various aspects of distributed computing, from small connected objects to the large data centres of tomorrow. This infrastructure will allow end-to-end experimentation with software and applications at all levels of the software layers, from event capture (sensors, actuators) to data processing and storage, to radio transmission management and dynamic deployment of edge computing services, enabling reproducible research on all-point programmable networks.

SILECS is a research infrastructure being built to gather the efforts of several testbeds.

We are also in the process of building SLICES, an European research infrastructure.
