The project identified reference deployment scenarios, defined new KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and QoE metrics, developed new testing methodologies and tools, and designed a complete evaluation scheme. The project focused on the development of a framework to ensure users QoE in the new challenging situations, especially those due to heterogeneous networks and considering the role software will have in the new 5G ecosystem.
The framework as value added also provided the means to allow certification and quality mark for the applications, services and devices compliant to the requirements and test specifications developed in the project but also extensible to other FIRE test solutions. This allowed vendor differentiation, specially startups and SMEs, in the current globalized and competitive markets and further visibility of FIRE facilities.
The framework, methods and tools developed during the project focused on providing the mechanisms to incorporate new wireless technologies and topologies envisaged in 5G and contribute to the new ecosystem.
