Telecommunication infrastructures play a vital role in modern society.
Advances in the range of network service offerings, performance,
quality of service, security, and ubiquity continue to flourish, despite
global economy fluctuations. Access to experimental infrastructures for
real-life applications by specific user communities benefits all of the
stakeholders involved: the end users, because of the first-hand
evaluation of the provided services, the researchers and infrastructure
experimenters, because of the knowledge gained from hands-on study
and analysis, and the service providers, because of the business
exploitation of the network.
The goal of TridentCom is to create a forum where telecommunication
networks researchers, vendors, providers and users can exchange ideas
on past experience, requirements, needs, and visions for future
establishment of such infrastructures. It showcases experimental
activities, such as testing, verification, integration, measurement, and
deployment, which are pivotal to achieving next generation
Prospective authors are invited to submit high quality papers as well as
demonstration proposals reporting on all aspects of test bed and research
infrastructure operation and management, including, but not limited to:
• Next Generation Internet Test beds
