Five new H2020 projects have started in 5G PPP Phase 2 with Nextworks among the key partners.
5G-Transformer (5G Mobile Transport Platform for Verticals) will 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.
Slicenet (End-to-End Cognitive Network Slicing and Slice Management Framework in Virtualised Multi-Domain, Multi-Tenant 5G Networks) will develop an end-to-end cognitive network slicing and slice management framework capable to act as ‘one-stop shop’ 5G slice management for vertical businesses (5G e Health and 5G Energy).
BlueSpace (Building on the Use of Spatial Multiplexing 5G Networks Infrastructures and Showcasing Advanced technologies and Networking Capabilities) will design the next generation optical access networks infrastructures with massive beam steering capabilities, building a reconfigurable infrastructure controlled by SDN and NFV tools and integarted with Passive Optical Networks (PONs).
5GCity will build the 5G-based edge platform trials in three distinct smart cities: Barcelona (ES), Lucca (IT) and Bristol (UK).
5G-MEDIA (Programmable edge-to-cloud virtualization fabric for the 5G Media industry) will develop and offer an open source, agile programming, orchestrating and verification DevOps platform based on SDN/NFV tools for media services and applications in 5G networks.
