ETSI Software Development Group OpenCAPIF

TSI Software Development Group OpenCAPIF (SDG OCF) is developing an open-source Common API
Framework, as defined by 3GPP, allowing to expose and consume APIs in a secure and consistent way.
The group liaises with relevant standards bodies and projects working on network transformation such as
the 3GPP, TM Forum, ETSI ZSM, ETSI NFV, ETSI MEC, OpenSourceMANO, TeraFlowSDN and OpenSlice.
OpenCAPIF results from EU Research project EVOLVED-5G project. ETSI Members and non-member
organizations join ETSI OpenCAPIF by signing the SDG OCF Agreement. Participation is free for ETSI
members, SMEs, Universities, Public Research Bodies and User and Trade Associations. Individual
Contributors and Users can create an Individual Account. Individual Contributors shall accept the
Individual Contributor License Agreement. You may find out more here:

5GPPP “Programmatic operation projects heritage and interactions” white paper

The 5GPPP “Programmatic operation projects heritage and interactions” white paper is now available! Access it and find about the EVOLVED-5G contributions. Find it online here:

The 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (PPP) Programme comprises 93 projects (listed in Section “Editors and Champions”) organized in three distinctive phases, namely specification, development and experimentation/pilots. Almost all PPP projects have now completed their work, with few remaining Phase 3 projects running until beginning of 2024. The 93 PPP projects achieved outstanding results and impact, as it has been regularly highlighted in the PPP Programme ( and the corresponding project websites. The PPP projects have created a plethora of advanced European telecommunication solutions. They also ensured an extremely high momentum and dynamism for the actual trials of these solutions as well as the further development of 5G systems on the road towards 6G networks, including 6G Smart Networks and Services (SNS) Joint Undertaking (JU). The broader context and overall panoramic perspective of the progress and achievements that the 5G Infrastructure PPP Programme has produced can be directly accessed on the PPP website, in the PPP Verticals Cartography, through specific White Papers and via the multiple webinars organized by the 5G PPP at the Programme and projects levels. Given the vast amount of work being carried out by the portfolio of 5G Infrastructure PPP projects, this PPP Projects Heritage Brochure and related Heritage Figure are summarizing the interconnections between the PPP projects under three specific categories: 1. Projects follow-up (captured in orange solid lines in the figure), 2. Components use/re-use (captured in light blue dashed lines in the figure) and 3. ICT-19 Verticals Pilots / ICT-17 Platforms use (captured in dark blue dashed lines in the figure). The work is consolidating and concluding the initial work achieved with the PPP Heritage Figure Version n°1 released in June 2020 ( and that was one of the PPP “Reference” Figures, widely used to depict the Programmatic connections between projects.

“Innovation Trends in I4.0 enabled by 5G and Beyond Networks” White Paper

The 5GPPP White Paper entitled “Innovation Trends in I4.0 enabled by 5G and Beyond Networks” is now available! Access it and learn all about EVOLVED-5G contributions here:

First of all, this whitepaper provides a 360-degree perspective on I4.0 design principles, drivers and trends – most of them supported or even directly enabled by 5G-, that stems directly from the sustained and tight cooperation of major I4.0 leaders with key industrial and academic contributors to 5G development across a handful of research and innovation projects backed specifically by the EU 5G-PPP (5GPublic Private Partnership) programme. Secondly, a further step into segmenting, staging and assessing the applicability of 5G and beyond technologies for the short and mid-term challenges of I4.0 is taken, by giving directly the voice to the I4.0 stakeholders engaged in these 5G-PPP projects and, then, extracting from their inputs collective highlights that could serve as a compass for focusing new ecosystem-based initiatives and for drawing new research policies in the field. The survey (see Annex II) conducted by this joint initiative has polled on the competitive advantages, applications and areas of interest for the adoption of 5G in their plans, the expected adoption and transition timelines, the identification of critical 5G network services for their applications, the importance of human-machine collaboration, the investment model that best matches their industry needs, the key requirements and expectations for non-public 5G networks, and the requirements for security and privacy, having been answered by eleven distinct responders holding key responsibility in the I4.0 roadmap within their organizations. Thirdly, a glimpse into some key evolving and new disruptive technological aspects around 5G evolution to 6G (Sixth Generation), such as Deterministic Networking, Non-Public Networks and Digital Twining, that are already being addressed by – among other EU 6G IA (Industry Association) SNS (Smart Network and Services) projects- Predict6G project is included, with the ambition of stretching the line of sight of this report into longer term synergies between I4.0 with 5G. Finally, the report also tries to derive from the experience and learnings about the influence of ecosystem dynamics, regulation, exploitation and sustainability of results, and public research policies and programmes, an outlook into the future on the expected evolution in such aspects along with a few suggestions and recommendations that could facilitate the successful completion of the journey of adoption of 5G for I4.0.
