About the project

Virtual and programmable industrial network prototype deployed in an operational wind park

VirtuWind will develop and demonstrate SDN & NFV ecosystem, based on open, modular and secure framework showcasing a prototype for intra-domain and inter-domain scenarios in real wind parks as a representative use case of industrial networks, and validate the economic viability of the demonstrated solution. The wind park control network has been chosen as a professional application in VirtuWind as wind energy has now established itself as a mainstream of sustainable energy generation.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 671648
