SliceNet organised an Industry panel session at IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference (Globecom 2018), Abu Dhabi, on 5G Network Slice Management, with participation of 5G-Transformer and FUTEBOL. The conference was held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 9 to 13 December 2018. IEEE GLOBECOM is one of the two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and is a premium event that brings together the best researchers and professionals from academic, industry and government to exchange novel ideas that will shape future generations of communication technologies.

A very interesting discussion was moderated by Maria Barros Weiss, H2020 5G PPP SliceNet project Coordinator, Programme Manager at Eurescom, Germany, with panelists:

  • Jose Alcaraz-Calero, H2020 5G PPP SliceNet Technical Project Manager, Professor at University of the West of Scotland, UK
  • Xavier Costa Perez, Head of 5G Networks R&D, NEC Laboratories Europe, Germany
  • James Kimery, Director of Product Marketing, RF Communications and SDR, National Instruments, Austin, Texas, USA
  • Luiz daSilva, Director of CONNECT, Professor at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland

Network slicing has emerged as a remarkable paradigm shift from 4G to NFV/SDN-enabled 5G and has been identified as a key 5G architectural requirement.
