5G-TRANSFORMER: 5G Mobile Transport Platform for Verticals

Main Goal
Design and implement SDN/NFV-based 5G Mobile Transport and Computing Platform (MTP) to simultaneously support specific needs of vertical industries (automotive, healthcare and media) via Network Slicing. In 5G-TRANSFORMER, the transport network and various computing fabrics are aggregated and federated, from the edge up to the core and cloud, to create and manage MTP slices throughout a federated virtualized infrastructure. 

Nextworks role
Design and develop MTP orchestrator functions for cross-domain virtual slices, including auto-scaling procedures. Develop mechanisms for distributed MEC service monitoring to support service orchestration decisions across federated domains.

Other key Partners
Telefonica (ES), Orange (FR), Nokia (DE), Ericsson (IT), NEC Europe (UK), ATOS (ES), ITRI (TW), CENTRO RICERCHE FIAT - FCA (IT).
