ahedd aims to spur digital experimentation and innovation for individuals, entrepreneurs, academic, corporate and public sector users via the provision of an array of specialised testbeds, and experimentation platforms that are available for free or fee-based.
A free platform that allows users to search, explore, experiment, analyse and uncover new data-driven insights, data-driven ideas from the social web. Registered users are able to create Dashboards, define data themes, analyse and visualise the retrieved social web data. The Social Web Observatory is a joint effort led by NCSR-Demokritos with the cooperation SciFY and GFOSS (Greek Open Technologies Alliance).
- 5G Technologies test-bed
An end-to-end experimental 5G Facility (Athens5Glink), comprising a large scale open 5G Platform, showcasing features of next generation networks, with particular focus on software network technologies (NFV and SDN) and edge computing for small cell deployments. The network is available for demonstrating the benefits of 5G to citizens, but also for enterprises which want to test and demonstrate innovative services and applications over 5G.
- A multi-sensor data collection and aggregation platform, covering the entire NCSR campus (smart-city testbed)
The platform is able to collect data from a variety of sensors, which then can be used from researchers and enterprises to build and assess innovative products and solutions.
- Antenna measurement
The antenna measurement facilities include an RF shielded anechoic chamber, which is a unique measurement infrastructure in Greece and is currently used for the determination of antenna characteristics. This infrastructure is used for the provision of specialised services directed to companies and research institutes involved in the design, development, testing and support in any type of wireless networks.
