MEC

Main Goal

Efficiently combine compute and storage resource functionality over a unified ultra-high capacity converged digital/analog Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) Radio Access Network (RAN) for 5G.

Nextworks role
Design and develop an SDN controller for the mixed data plane (mmWave, FiWi), work on NFV/MEC orchestration and network slicing and on a monitoring framework from multi-technology network domains and the hybrid cloud/edge.
 

Main Goal

Validate through field-trials the actual performance of 5G system deployed on the premises of vertical industries, and optimize the performance using automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven solutions. Nine use cases in three pilot sectors, Industry 4.0, Transport, and Energy, to be field-trialed on four vertical-owned sites in Spain, Italy, and Portugal.
