Realistic experimentation facilities are indispensable to accelerate the design of novel Future Internet systems. As many of these ground-breaking new applications and services cover multiple innovation areas, the need for these solutions to be tested on cross-domain facilities with both novel infrastructure technologies and newly emerging service platforms is rising. The Fed4FIRE project therefore aims at federatingotherwise isolated experimentation facilities in order to foster synergies between research communities. Currently the federation includes over 15 facilities from the Future Internet Research and Experiment (FIRE) initiative, covering wired, wireless and sensor networks, SDN and OpenFlow, cloud computing, smart city services,etc.This paper presents the architecture and implementation details of the federation, based on an extensive set of requirements coming from infrastructure owners, service providers and support communities
