5G-VICTORI at the 2022 EuCNC & 6G Summit

From June 7th to 10th, 5G-VICTORI will be in Grenoble to demonstrate its technological developments.

Under the theme “Connectivity for a Sustainable World”, the 2022 edition of the EuCNC & 6G Summit will focus on various aspects of 5G and 6G communications systems and networks, including cloud and virtualisation solutions, management technologies, hardware components and microelectronic technologies, and vertical application areas. 5G-VICTORI will participate with a booth (#41) in the Summit’s exhibition, where a wide range of technologies, products and results from European Commission co-funded projects will be presented.

The project partners will demonstrate some of the technological developments the 5G-VICTORI project is currently deploying in 5G Experimental facilities that are extended to operational environments for Rail, Media, Energy and Factories of the Future. It can be assessed that private standalone out-of-the-box 5G solutions can indistinctly support a variety of services with different performance requirements. These solutions include: (i) heterogeneous wireless technologies in support of CDN-like services in railway environments, (ii) private 5G networks in support of IoT and media services, (iii) provision of dynamic inter-site connectivity, interdomain orchestration, and supports on-boarding of inter-domain services, (iv) Rail signalling.

The technologies being demonstrated at booth 41 are:

  • CDN demo enabled by mmWave connectivity in a railway environment– tests in a Deutsche Bahn depot in Berlin where “data showers” with large sets of media assets, enabled by mmWave comms, are synchronized to the train in a short amount of time.
  • Smart Factory Use Case:
    • 1) smart private 5G enabled network of energy efficient sensors and the corresponding management system, able to support preventive maintenance techniques for the ADMIE high voltage critical infrastructure.
    • 2) 5G enabled surveillance system with unmanned vehicles/robots that inspect the high voltage facilities.
  • Mobility management solution for Railway environment control of handovers along a track-to-train communication path using a P4-based software switch. OpenAirInterface (OAI) will be used as the application that is hosted on top, establishing connections to the core network.
  • Infotainment and public safety E2E 5G SA solution with OAI network slicing support, where slice deployed services using open tool, critical traffic prioritization in RAN and video analytics solution.
  • 5G-VICTORI Operation System for verticals to deploy new services and intelligently select the resources required to deploy that service based on performance profiles and create the necessary inter-connections to facilitate the service.
  • 360 video livestreams (tour guide in Bristol and live classrooms) segmented and transcoded in the cloud and cached via CDN on an edge close to EuCNC where one can enjoy the experience with AR glasses. Users @EuCNC with 5G handsets will connect via on-site OAI 5G HW.
  • Rail signaling over a 5G cellular network, emulating rail signaling between Wayside and Onboard the train.

About the 2022 EuCNC & 6G Summit

The 2022 EuCNC & 6G Summit builds on putting together two successful conferences in the area of telecommunications: EuCNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications), supported by the European Commission, and the 6G Summit, originated from the 6G Flagship programme in Finland, one of the very first in its area.

The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and by the European Association for Signal Processing, and focuses on all aspects of telecommunications ranging from 5G deployment and mobile IoT to 6G exploration and future communications systems and networks, including experimentation and testbeds, and applications and services.

It brings together cutting-edge research and world-renown industries and businesses, globally attracting in the last years more than 1 300 delegates from more than 40 countries all over the world, to present and discuss the latest results, and an exhibition with more than 70 exhibitors, for demonstrating the technology developed in the area, namely within research projects from EU R&I programmes.
