Building and operating a mobile broadband (MBB) testbed is the key goal of the MONROE project. Such a testbed, however, cannot be built without the feedback of the experimenters who are the main users of it. Therefore, external users are in the core of the MONROE project.
The external experimenters (third parties ) in MONROE project were financed via two Open Calls. The Calls were competitive and all applications were independently evaluated based on their degree of innovation, scientific excellence and/or industrial relevance, and suitability in scale and complexity of the experiment. Each proposal was reviewed by reviewers from both academia and industry and by at least one external reviewer.
The experimenters selected through the Second Open Call accessed the platform to collect results of passive and active measurements. Some proposed protocol experiments as well as SW extensions to the platform.
