6G-SANDBOX – Supporting architectural and technological network evolutions through an intelligent, secured and twinning enabled open experimentation facility

The European Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking is part of the EU’s efforts to step up the green and digital transition. In line with its aim to ensure industrial leadership for Europe in 5G and 6G, the EU-funded 6G-SANDBOX project will develop a complete and modular facility for the European experimentation ecosystem. Since 6G requires a fresh design approach to the network architecture, the project will support the next-decade technology and research validation processes. It will introduce the concept of trial networks, which refers to fully configurable, manageable and controlled end-to-end networks, composed of both digital and physical nodes.
