On 8th October, Mark Roddy, a senior researcher from SliceNet partner Cork Institute of Technology, met Martin Dunne, the Director of the Irish National Ambulance Service. They discussed CIT’s innovative research for the delivery of life-saving telemedicine services over an experimental 5G in-ambulance communication system. The telemedicine trial is part of the use cases explored in the SliceNet project.
At their meeting, Mark presented Martin with a recently published brochure from the EU’s 5G PPP that showcases CIT’s innovative in-ambulance TeleStroke Assessment service, currently under trial at DellEMC’s experimental 5G testbed in Ovens, Cork.
5G PPP Trials & Pilots brochure for download (pdf)
The first 5G PPP Trials & Pilots brochure is now available for download on the 5GPPP website and features the top 10 innovative 5G PPP trials currently up and running around Europe. The brochure will be launched at the IEEE 5G WF event Trials Workshop event in Dresden. The SliceNet eHealth trial is delighted to be included in the top 10 pilots!
The workshop, co-organized by SliceNet, 5G-VINNI, 5G-EVE, and 5GDrive was very sucessful, with a day of interesting keynote and paper presentations and two panel discussions on 5G Trials from the business and vertical prespectives and challenges for Trials beyond 5G – Workshop 2nd workshop on 5g trials from 5g experiments to business validation
Mark Roddy from Cork Institute of Technology presenting the SliceNet paper ‘5G Network Slicing for Mission-critical use cases’ at the 2nd Workshop on 5G-Trials as part of IEEE 5G World Forum in Dresden.
Software-networking based architecture approach with NFV (Network Function Virtualisation) and SDN (Software-Defined Networking) as cornerstones are essential in achieving the 5G vision and delivery of next generation capabilities. In particular, intelligent network slicing has emerged as a remarkable paradigm shift from 4G to NFV/SDN-enabled 5G. (more…)
SliceNet contributed a peer-reviewed paper to a workshop at Netsoft 2019. This year’s “IEEE Conference on Network Softwarization” took place in Paris. At the “2nd Workshop on Advances in Slicing for Softwarized Infrastructures” on 28 June 2019, Luca Baldini from Ericsson presented a paper on the SliceNet control plane.
In his presentation Luca Baldini explained SliceNet’s innovative control plane concepts. These concepts include plug-and-play slice control, slice QoE optimization, and SDN-segment control. The audience of international experts showed high interest and asked several questions. The ensuing discussion focused on network slicing control and the interaction with vertical business domains. The expert audience particularly recognized SliceNet’s plug-and-play slice control as a key innovation in the network domain.

This “Cloud-Native and Verticals’ services” white paper, from the 5G-PPP Software Network Working Group, of which SliceNet is a contributor, analyzes how 5G-PPP projects interpret Cloud-Native design patterns and identify adoption barriers. “Cloud-Native” is the name of an approach to designing, building and running applications/virtual functions fully exploiting the cloud delivery model. Cloud-Native is relatively new in comparison to other approaches and there are some barriers to its adaptation in the telecommunications industry, which are explored in the white paper. (more…)
SliceNet are delighted to announce that our three use cases on Smart City, Smart Grid and eHealth are included in the recently published 5G PPP showcase called Verticals Cartography. The 5G Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) is developing new applications across a diverse set of verticals spanning proofs of concept, prototypes, demonstrations, trials, and pilots in order to validate the functionalities defined for 5G by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). Vertical applications could produce up to 10.7 trillion euros worth of goods and services enabled by 5G mobile technology. Have a browse through the vertical applications here.
