The 27th edition of The European Conference on Networks and Communications, EuCNC 2018 took place from 18th to 21st of June in Ljubljana, Slovenia. This event is part of a series of technical conferences in the field of telecommunications, sponsored by IEEE ComSoc and EURASIP; and financially supported by the European Commission.
The event is focusing on communication networks and systems, services and applications. It brings together a vast community of researchers from all over the world to present their latest research results, being one of the main venues for showcasing demos and trials of research projects results, especially European R&D programmes.
5GEx, in collaboration with other 5G PPP projects, is playing an active role at this important event. The partners of 5GEx consortium are taking part in different activities, making important contributions and strengthening collaboration with other EU Horizon2020 5G-PPP Phase 2 projects.
5GEx in collaboration with other 5G PPP projects participating in the Software Networks working group is involved in the organization of the following Workshops:
Workshop 2 entitled: From cloud ready to cloud native transformation: What it means and Why it matters
Workshop 3 entitled: Multi-provider, multi-vendor, multi-player orchestration: from distributed cloud to edge and fog environments in 5G
5GEx technical manager Dr. Carlos Bernardos in cooperation with Dr. Antonio de la Oliva, all from the UC3M, chaired the workshop. Carlos Bernardos presented “Roaming solution for multi-domain virtualized environments”.
5G is the first generation of mobile networks that is by design addressing the wide range of needs of the vertical industries. 5G offers unlimited mobile broadband experience, provides massive connectivity for everything from human held smart devices to sensors and machines, and most importantly, it has the ability to support critical machine communication with instant action and ultra-high reliability.
The first 5G specifications are available with 3GPP Rel.15, but further enhancements and optimization are needed to design a 5G System that meets the requirements from the vertical industries. In this special session, pitches from vertical industries, operators and vendors were collected to trigger a panel discussion on the above aspects.
In this special session, Carlos Bernardos and Diego López participated from 5GEx project.
EuCNC Exhibition & Booth
From June 19 to 21 at EuCNC2018, 5GEx showcased its results in a joint booth with 5G-TRANSFORMER and 5G-CORAL (Booth # 2). This exhibition booth showed demos from these 3 different projects, which are collaborating in the area of multi-domain, multi-provider orchestration of services and resources in cloud, edge and fog environments.5G Coral, 5G-TRANSFORMER & 5G Ex panoramic view of the joint booth during EuCNC 2018.
From 5GEx, two demos were shown:
1) Roaming in a multi-domain virtualized environment (the GiLAN). Real-life demo.
Diego López participated in the panel “Smart connectivity in the context of Next Generation Internet”, organized by Arturo Azcorra.
