International Projects

5G-CLARITY: Beyond 5G multi-tenant private networks integrating Cellular, Wi-Fi, and LiFi, Powered by ARtificial Intelligence and Intent Based PolicY (NOVEMBER 2019 - FEBRUARY 2022)

5G-CLARITY puts forward a beyond 5G architecture for private networks, which features a novel access network integrating 5G, WiFi, and LiFi, compute and transport resources, and novel management components to enable AI driven network automation. Based on this architecture, 5G-CLARITY will define communication services that deliver measurable enhancements with respect to the eMBB and URLLC services defined by 3GPP in Release 16, in terms of low latency, area capacity, reliability, and accurate positioning and synchronization capabilities. In addition, 5G-CLARITY will develop a management plane featuring SDN/NFV components together with an AI engine that will automate network management by receiving high level intent policies from the network administrator.

National Projects

TRUE5G-UGR: Towards zeRo toUch nEtwork and services for beyond 5G (JANUARY 2020 - JANUARY 2022)

The main goal of the TRUE5G-UGR project is the design of an architectural framework for the management and orchestration of E2E network slices in multi-technology, multi-tenant environments. This paradigm implies a series of challenges such as (a) the management of radio resources of different technologies (e.g. 5GNR, WiFi, LoRa) and different entities (e.g. CU and DU); (b) the integration of these access technologies to the 5G network core; and (c) the distribution of radio resources and other infrastructures among the slices, potentially owned by different tenants. In addition, the targeted framework must facilitate the integration and application of artificial intelligence-driven processes for achieving optimized performance.

5G-CITY: Adaptive Management of 5G Services to Support Critical Events in Cities (JANUARY 2017 - JANUARY 2019)

The general objective of this project is to provide adequate support for the smart city paradigm in the most challenging scenarios, namely unexpected, critical events involving a large number of citizens concentrating in a small geographic area. The approach is to develop an adaptive solution to control 5G technologies and configure communication services, maintaining low-latency requirements, adequate scalability characteristics and high dependability.
