SliceNet team face to face meeting in Alveiro in November 2018

In Alveiro in Portugal, partner Altice Labs hosted the team in a fruitful face to face discussion 19th – 22nd November 2018. 

The plenary meeting was held to discuss the project status and next steps. The team stands in front of the Altice Labs building. 

The 6th Plenary Meeting focused on the following main topics:

  • Technical use cases workflows definition
  • Alignment between cognition problems and use cases – final demonstration requirements
  • SliceNet slice template discussion (data model)
  • Mechanism and platform for the integration of components and concrete integration roadmap/plan
  • Parallel technical sessions in WP4 / WP5 / WP6 / WP7 / WP8 / WP9.

eHealth SliceNet Video on Ambulance Tele-medicine

In this video the eHealth SliceNet team describe ambulance tele-medicine services using 5G slicing.

A key aim in the H2020 SliceNet project is to demonstrate a verticals-oriented 5G network, focused on control of end-to-end ‘sliced’ services. Dedicated ‘slices’ of the network are guaranteed, to ensure the quality of service (QoS) necessary for the delivery of mission critical services, such as emergency tele-medicine.  (more…)

The session title is: “Artificial Intelligence – New Solutions for Real-time Service Delivery”. The session aims to stimulate an interdisciplinary discussion on innovative solutions using Artificial Intelligence (AI) for real-time service delivery.    Read More

2nd 5GINFIRE Open Call “Innovative experiments”

Call information:

Call identifier: 5ginfire-2 ‑ 2nd 5GINFIRE Open Call “Innovative experiments”

Submission deadline: 18 December 2018 at 17:00 Brussels local time

5Gin FIRE Open Call

Mandatory feasibility check deadline:    5 December 2018 at 17:00 Brussels local time


Call objectives:

The main technical objective of 5GinFIRE is to build and operate an open and extensible 5G NFV-based reference (Open5G-NFV) ecosystem of experimental facilities that not only integrates existing FIRE facilities with new vertical-specific ones, but also lays down the foundations for instantiating fully softwarized architectures of vertical industries and experimenting with them. The initial instantiation of the Open5G-NFV ecosystem was targeted to the automotive vertical industry requirements, addressed across state-of-the-art 5G infrastructures. However, it is as generic as possible in order to host other verticals applications. Read more…


SliceNet successful first year review in Brussels

The 1st year SliceNet review the last week of September 2018 in Brussels was successful and the whole review process was very constructive and leads us into the second year with renewed vigour. There was a focus on the SliceNet proposed architecture and testbed infrastructure, these were accepted and we are now moving forward with the implementation. The consortium is working well together on the three network slicing use cases of 5G eHealth, 5G Smart City and 5G Smart Grid self-healing and looking forward to working together in the next two years of the project!

Agenda – Network Slicing World Summit – KNect365

Mark Roddy, CIT, will speak as part of a panel discussion in the upcoming Network Slicing World Summit in Berlin, 23 October 2018 held in CityCube Berlin Messedamm 26 14055 Berlin. This event is collocated with this year’s Broadband World Forum 2018.

“Network slicing will be a panacea, but it won’t arrive with a bang. The enormous challenge & opportunity of Network Slicing starts with 4G – Current Thinking: There remain complex technological hurdles to end-to-End, Application-Aware sliced networks, but the greater and more immediate challenge is on the operations and business side.” See the  knect365 website and come and hear the latest on slicing. Read More

An eye on the future: the European 5G Observatory

The new 5G Observatory, which will track the development of 5G networks in Europe, is now up and running.

The European Commission’s online platform of the 5G Observatory and the Observatory’s first quarterly report were presented yesterday at the 5G Techritory forum in Riga, Latvia. 5G is the next generation of telecommunications systems, which will provide ultra-high bandwidth to users and connected objects like household appliances, sensors, cars and more (the Internet of Things).  Read more…
