Project Description: 

 

5G-SOLUTIONS is the flagship ICT-19 RIA project supporting EC’s 5G policy by implementing the last phase (Phase 3b) of the 5G cPPP roadmap.

 

The project aims to prove and validate that 5G provides prominent industry verticals with ubiquitous access to a wide range of forward-looking services with orders of magnitude of improvement over 4G, thus bringing the 5G vision closer to realisation. This will be achieved through conducting advanced field-trials of innovative use cases, directly involving end-users across five significant industry vertical domains in five countries:

 

  • Factories of the Future, in Belgium, Ireland and Norway
  • Smart Energy, in Italy
  • Smart Cities, in Ireland and Norway
  • Smart Ports, in Norway
  • Media & Entertainment in Greece and Norway.

 

In particular, 5G-SOLUTIONS will provide:

 

a)    Validation of more than 140 KPIs for 20 innovative and heterogeneous use cases that require 5G performance capabilities and that are expected to have a high future commercialisation potential. These use cases will be field trialed separately as well as concurrently with real end-user actors through ICT-17’s 5G-EVE Italy and 5G-VINNI Norway/Greece facilities (with additional private 5G-VINNI 5G nodes in Belgium, Ireland and Norway) thus validating their conformance to target 5G technological KPIs specified for each use case, as well as their business potential, ethical and social acceptance. The validation will be performed over 3 iterative phases corresponding to upgraded versions of ICT-17 facilities over 3GPP Rel.15, Rel. 16 and beyond.

 

b)    Technological enablers for facilitating the execution of the field trials in an automated way, including:

 

i)    a unified cross-domain service orchestrator enabling multidomain slicing and 5G service lifecycle automation,

 

ii)   an innovative smart KPI visualisation system for facilitating the near real-time analysis, presentation, benchmarking and performance validation of reference 5G network KPIs against predefined target values,

 

iii)   intent-based APIs for stimulating innovation and fostering the development, portability and provisioning of new innovative applications by SMEs.

 

c)   Significant contribution to 5G standardization to a number of SDOs and open fora, such as 3GPP, ETSI, ITU-T, IETF, ONF, NGMN, EBU, etc.
