The AERPAW team participated in the workshop on Future Networks Testbed Requirements, Challenges and Opportunities, organized and hosted by the IEEE Future Networks community. Rudra Dutta from the AERPAW team made a presentation on the AERPAW platform, with special reference to the challenges posed by a cyberphysical facility intended to be used completely remotely. The presentation videos are openly available at https://futurenetworks.ieee.org/conferences/fn-testbed-workshop.
The AERPAW team has started the process of re-fitting space, acquiring equipment, and configuring infrastructure to create the new Data-and-Compute-Store (DCS) backend for the AERPAW platform. This will enable the AERPAW DCS to move out of the temporary space and facilities that supported Phase-1, and into the more long-term facility that will support Phase-2 and beyond.
