The 5GPPP project 5G_MoNArch will be at the MWC18 (www.mobileworldcongress.com/) booth of Mobile World Capital in Barcelona next week to present the activities on E2E architecture and Network Slicing for 5G. In the booth there will be a video prepared in the project illustrating the main objectives of the project, namely how to apply concepts like network resilience and elasticity to the 5G E2E architecture. A presentation will also be given on Tuesday morning, February 28th.

5GPPP Architecture WG has released “5G Architecture White Paper v2.0.” This paper highlights the key 5G architecture design recommendations from 5GPPP Phase 1 and provides a baseline architecture for Phases 2 and 3.
5G-MoNarch is editing a Special Issue on Flexible and Adaptive 5G Mobile Network Architecture Design for E2E Network Slicing for the journal Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing. We would like to invite authors to submit original papers.

5G-MoNArch has released two deliverables (D6.1 and D2.1) in the second half of 2017.
This deliverable describes the criteria and requirements necessary to achieve a flexible, adaptable and programmable fully-fledged architecture for 5G mobile networks. The architecture will incorporate the key enabling innovations (i.e., inter-slice control and cross-domain management; experiment-driven optimisation; and cloud-enable protocol stack) and the key functional innovations (i.e., resilience and security, and resource elasticity) of the 5G-MoNArch project.
This deliverable delineates a baseline architecture for the 5G-MoNArch project based on the consolidated view coming from the work of the relevant fora, consortia, SDOs (such as, 3GPP and ETSI), 5G PPP Phase 1 projects along with 5G PPP WGs. After defining this baseline architecture, all the 5G system gaps that need to be addressed by the innovations proposed by the project with a particular focus on E2E network slicing are identified.
On Tuesday August 29th, 2017, a panel was organized in University of Bologna, Politecnico, in the framework of the ISWCS Symposium. ISWCS is an event sponsored by IEEE and Desio and the one in Bologna was the 14th edition of this series of Symposia, dedicated to “wireless communications systems”. 5G MoNArch was invited to organize a panel dedicated to “network slicing” for 5G systems, with a specific focus on how to include vertical stakeholders in the network slicing implementation. The panellists were Mauro Boldi (5G MoNArch Dissemination WP leader, and moderator of the panel), Enrico Buracchini from TIM, Chen Tao from VTT, Markus Breitbach from DT and Omer Bulakci from Huawei GRC. The opportunity was also to share the views of some Phase 1 5GPPP projects such as 5G Norma, METIS-II and Coherent and also to check the status of the activities about network slicing in the 5G Architecture Working Group, in which Dr. Bulakci is vice-chairman. The audience was of about 70 people from researchers and industrial delegates and appreciated the panel asking several questions to the speakers during the Q&A final session.
The kickoff meeting of the 5G-MoNArch project took place in Munich from July 4-6, 2017. Since most of the work packages started together, it was an intense exercise, but with good progress in setting the baselines.
