We are delighted to inform you that the SliceNet video of the “5GPPP@EuCNC2019” series, showing demonstrations from 5G PPP projects, has been released. It is available on the 5G PPP YouTube Channel and on the 5G PPP web site. It is also accessible directly here
Orange Romania has become the first country within the Orange Group’s footprint to commercially launch 5G, offering customers internet download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps and average download speeds of 600Mbps. A speed test carried out on the Orange Romania 5G commercial network in Cluj Napoca, Romania, shows coverage on a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G (exclusive to Orange Romania).

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.
