SliceNet plenary meeting #10 February 2020

The SliceNet Project held its 10th plenary meeting in Athens, Greece last week, jointly hosted by SliceNet partners OTE and CSE. The meeting featured a series of project technical workshops and hackathons to advance the system integration and demonstration of the three representative 5G use cases in eHealth, Smart City and Smart Grid.

The integrated system and use case demonstrations will deliver the project’s ambitious objectives and the top project innovations in end-to-end multi-domain network slicing, Plug & Play control for customisation of verticals’ network slices and cognitive network slice management based on Artificial Intelligence.

RedZinc, a SliceNet partner, demonstrates eHealth use case at West Midlands 5G-ACIA Conference in Ricoh Arena Coventry

RedZinc was invited to participate in the 5G-ACIA Conference in Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 22 January 2020 in order to demonstrate the wearable video applications achievable on 5G networks. The UK government has invested £200M in 5G testbed facilities and trials nationwide in order to build business cases, foster a 5G ecosystem and lead research and development in urban and rural communities, manufacturing and healthcare.

SliceNet joins the ETSI OSM Research Community

ETSI OSM is an industry-led ETSI community that is delivering a production-quality open source Management and Orchestration (MANO) stack aligned with ETSI NFV principles and specifications, and that targets to meet the requirements of operational NFV networks.

SliceNet recently joined the ETSI Open Source MANO (OSM) research community, that group together a wide set of heterogeneous research activities using or contributing to ETSI OSM. SliceNet uses ETSI OSM as part of the Service and Slice orchestration framework for combined coordination of end-to-end network slices and NFV Network Services provisioning and operation in support of the SmartCity, SmartGrid and eHealth vertical use cases.

SliceNet and Matilda collaboration

SliceNet and  MATILDA are collaborating on network slicing and 5G ready applications which will use those network slices. 5G network slicing is a network architecture that enables the multiplexing of virtualized and independent logical networks on the same physical network infrastructure. Each network slice is an isolated end-to-end network tailored to fulfil diverse requirements requested by a particular application. (more…)

SliceNet presents contributions at the ITU Focus Group Machine Learning 5G standards on “Noisy Neighbour” detection

The ITU Focus Group is analysing ML for future networks in order to identify relevant gaps and issues in standardization activities related to this topic – including technical aspects such as use cases, possible requirements, architectures and others. SliceNet is contributing to the standardization of machine learning use cases for the advancement of 5G telecommunications systems. (more…)

SliceNet presents contributions at the ITU Focus Group Machine Learning 5G on anomaly prediction

Orange Labs Networks, partner of SliceNet, has made a number of contributions in the area of Machine Learning and cognitive management to the ITU-T Focus Group on Machine Learning for Future Networks including 5G. These contributions included anomaly prediction and integration for an eHealth Use Case based on vertical feedback; and Noisy neighbour detection and integration in a virtualized infrastructure. Orange Labs Networks presented their  contributions and an overview of SliceNet architecture with focus on cognitive closed loop to the ITU-T Focus Group ML5G under study group 13 at theweb-conference, on 20th November 2019.
