5G EVE: 5G European Validation platform for Extensive trials

Main Goal

Build an end-to-end 5G facility consisting of the interconnection of four 5G-site-facilities (France, Spain, Italy, Greece), to enable experiments with: (a) heterogeneous access, including NR, licensed/unlicensed spectrum, advanced spectrum management; (b) Mobile Edge Computing, backhaul, core/service technologies; (c) means for site-interworking and multi-site/domain/technology slicing/orchestration. 5G-EVE will be initially compliant with 3GPP Rel. 15 and, later on, with 3GPP Rel. 16.

Nextworks role
Design and develop mechanism for facility interoperation, for multi-domain and hierarchical performance monitoring, tools for testing and intent-based networking and flow-based programming approaches to implement a set of ready-to-use primitives for the measurement and validation of 5G KPIs over an end-to-end 5G network.
