Integrating 5G enabling technologies in a holistic service to physical layer 5G system platform
The necessity of an enabling 5G infrastructure is of paramount importance for maintaining the market penetration momentum of 5G, generating in turn the functional requirements for meeting the expected 5G key performance indicators and therefore supporting the creation and growth of truly innovative vertical markets.
Within this highly demanding environment, Int5Gent aims to deploy a holistic 5G system platform for the validation of advanced 5G services and IoT solutions.
The project builds upon a suite of innovative 5G technological solutions spanning hardware, software, and networking systems that have been conceptualized and developed under the latest 5GPPP initiative projects.
It also combines novel and state-of-the-art solutions able to further upgrade the capabilities and maturity level of cutting-edge 5G core technologies enabling the creation of an innovative 5G ecosystem.
The overall platform is implemented in two extended testbeds which include actual field deployed segments and managed by the network operators of the consortium. The validation and showcasing testbeds host 3 use case scenarios covering the deployment of services related to multiple vertical sectors as well as innovative applications for smart IoT networked devices, in particular:
– Monitoring, maintenance and security services for critical infrastructures (physical railway infrastructure)
– High capacity connectivity video streaming IoT devices (security)
– Public Protection and Disaster Relief
The use cases are designed in order to highlight the benefits of the adopted technologies in terms of increased bandwidth, low latency and high reliability and create new market opportunities.
