June 6, 2022
From 8 – 10 June 2022 the two European Commission Horizon 2020 projects FUDGE-5G and Affordable5G are jointly organising a booth at the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) taking place in Grenoble, France. At booth 39, the projects will demonstrate their latest innovations in 5G private networks.
The FUDGE-5G demonstration will focus on its SBA platform, which implements the Service Communication Proxy and offers cloud-native location-aware orchestration of 5G Cores. Utilising the SBA capabilities, the first part of the demonstration allows to deploy 5GC on-premise and have it operational with a gNB within two minutes. This is then mixed with a hybrid deployment where the UPF is located on premise and all other required 5GC NFs in the cloud. The third deployment, instead, has the entire 5GC in the cloud. All on-premise deployments utilise the same SBA platform. For all three deployments, a Vertical Health Monitoring application will be orchestrated on-premise allowing to demonstrate the functional readiness of all 5GCs.
Affordable5G will showcase its latest project outcomes and developments in its quest to create a high-tech and affordable 5G network roll-out spanning across several fields. At the booth, video presentations and other informational material will be available to visitors, and the research partners will present a paper entitled “Towards Closed-loop Automation in 5G Open RAN: Coupling an Open-Source Simulator with xApp” on 9 June (Room A228, 10,30 session).
Join us from 8 – 10 June 2022 at EuCNC, booth 39!
