5G Network slicing approach by i2CAT

Network slicing is widely considered as one of the main drivers fostering the adoption of 5G technologies. In particular, the unique capabilities offered by network slices are...

Objectives

  • Design and prototype an open 5G infrastructure capable of instantiating and co-hosting various vertical sectors. This will be based on leading industry and open source technologies supporting very diverse service requirements with guaranteed QoS adopting the concepts of slicing and virtulization.

  • Multiple-5G platform integration to facilitate cross-border operation of vertical industries involving various EU member states, substantially reducing the life-cycle cost of transportation, energy, media and factories of the future.

  • Flexible network architecture enabling function deployment and relocation of vertical-specific network functions based on the requirements in terms of capacity, latency and reliability.

  • Purposely extend the three 5G-PPP Platforms developed under the ICT-17-2018 and the 5GUK platform with appropriate HW/SW in support of the Transportation, Media, Energy, Factoryof the Future verticals.

  • Encompass new business model definitions supporting the shift from "network as an asset" to "network as a service" model vision. Replace vertical specific networks (telecom, rail, energy) with public networks supporting in parallel several vertical industries use cases

  • Impactful contributions towards standardisation bodies, involving vertical actors, for what concerns the second phase of 5G standardisation. Participation of key European industrial partners with high standardisation impact is desired.
