EuCNC 2018, Ljubljana June, 18-21 – https://www.eucnc.eu/

5G-MoNArch be present at the EuCNC 2018 conference and exhibition, which takes place from June 18-21, 2018, in Ljubljana, Slovenia, with many contributions from it’s current research work and a demonstrator!

In particular, the project contributes to or organizes:

  • the 2nd Workshop on business models and techno-economic analysis for 5G networks (project presentation by Real Wireless)
  • the Special Session 4a on Resource Elasticity for 5G Network Architecture (session chair: Samsung UK)
  • the Special Session 4b on 5G Mobile Network Architecture and New Radio Advances (5GMoNANeRA), organized together with the EU project ONE5G (5G-MoNArch session chairs: Nokia, UC3M, Telecom Italia)
  • the Special Session 5 on 5G Architecture towards Verticals (session chairs: Nokia and Huawei), organized by the 5G-PPP Architecture Working Group
  • the exhibition booth EX10, which provides a demonstrator from 5G-MoNArch partner NOMOR on network slicing and resource elasticity, together with an updated project video and a number of posters on the scientific work within the project.

Presentation by Real Wireless at the SPEED-5G workshop

The 5G-MoNArch project partner Real Wireless were asked to present a view from 5G-MoNArch on 5G spectrum management within the 7th March 2018 – SPEED-5G workshop in London. Real Wireless talked through a slidepack about the potential implications, even if not directly being addressed in 5G-MoNArch, regarding advanced spectrum management which was the workshop’s topic. More specifically, what are the spectrum implications of network slicing and more localised deployments targeting industrial applications.

The slidesets and demo videos are live and linked to the workshop site:

5GArch workshop at ICC 2018

The 5G-MoNArch project is organizing a workshop (5th International Workshop on 5G Architecture (5GArch)) at ICC 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri, USA,  end of May 2018. The workshop is the fifth in the series of 5G Architecture workshops started by the 5G-PPP Phase 1 project 5G NORMA.

Mobile World Congress 2018

The 5G-MoNArch project was represented with a booth at the Mobile World Congress in February 2018. The booth was kindly hosted by MWCapital Barcelona, through the support of the 5G Infrastructure Association. Besides the booth representation, 5G-MoNArch gave an overview presentation of the project at the auditorium of MWCaptial Barcelona. The project video shown at the booth can be obtained from the 5G-MoNArch Youtube channel.

The main goal of the project presence at MWC2018 was to present the activities on E2E architecture and Network Slicing for 5G, and to illustrate the main objectives of the project, namely, how to apply concepts like network reliability, resilience and elasticity to the 5G E2E architecture, and how to turn these concepts into practice through the project testbeds.

Deliverables D6.1 and D2.1

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.

 

5G MoNArch at the ISWCS 2017

On Tuesday August 29th, 2017, a panel was organized at the University of Bologna, Politecnico, in the framework of the 14th edition of the ISWCS. ISWCS is a symposium sponsored by IEEE and Desio, and this 14th edition was dedicated to “wireless communications systems”. 5G MoNArch was invited to organize a panel on “network slicing” for 5G systems, with a specific focus on how to include vertical stakeholders into the network slicing implementation. The panellists were Mauro Boldi (Telecom Italia, 5G MoNArch Dissemination WP leader and moderator of the panel), Enrico Buracchini from Telecom Italia, Chen Tao from VTT, Markus Breitbach from Deutsche Telekom and Omer Bulakci from Huawei GRC. The goal of the panel was also to share the views and insights of 5G-PPP Phase 1 projects such as 5G NORMA, METIS-II and Coherent, and furthermore to check the status of the activities about network slicing in the 5G-PPP Architecture Working Group, where Dr. Bulakci acts as 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.
