Offering the 3GPP Common API Framework as Microservice to Vertical Industries” Paper Presentation at EuCNC 2022

Alejandro Molina Sanchez from Telefonica presented the EVOLVED-5G conference paper entitled “Offering the 3GPP Common API Framework as Microservice to Vertical Industries” on June 9th 2022. The 3GPP Common API Framework (CAPIF) has been standardized to guarantee a unique reference model for API-based service provisioning in 3GPP systems. The great potential of such framework is currently revealed due to the need for interaction between vertical industries and mobile networks. Towards realizing the above-mentioned interaction, we describe key functional aspects of CAPIF by focusing on related functional entities and APIs. In addition, we implemented the CAPIF Core Function, i.e., the main entity of CAPIF, as an effort to set the basis for an ecosystem where developers from vertical industries can easily develop network-interacting applications. To facilitate any further contribution in the area, our CAPIF implementation follows the principles of microservice programming, and it is released (open source) together with a set of evaluation tests. The paper has been created by Alejandro Molina Sanchez (Telefónica I+D, Spain); Anastasios-Stavros Charismiadis and Dimitris Tsolkas (Fogus Innovations & Services, Greece); David Artuñedo Guillen (Telefónica, Spain); Javier Garcia Rodrigo (Telefónica I+D, Spain).

5G FORUM 2022

EVOLVED-5G project will take part in the 5G FORUM 2022 through a dedicated special session entitled “EVOLVED-5G & 5G USE CASES INNOVATION”. In this special session organized by EVOLVED-5G on the fourth day of the forum on 12th of May three dedicated presentations will take place.

David Antunedo from Telefonica will present the “EVOLVED-5G CAPIF core function”, along with other 5G uses cases that TID is implementing also with UMA in Málaga. Bruno Garcia from University of Malaga will present the “EVOLVED-5G Netapp ecosystem, 5G programmability and the NetApp lifecycle” and Almudena Diaz from University of Malaga will present the “EVOLVED-5G agricultural use case and Netapp ” to demonstrate that EVOLVED-5G activities go even beyond i4.0.

EVOLVED-5G announces the first release (Release 1.0) of the 3GPP CAPIF Core Function

EVOLVED-5G announces the first release (Release 1.0) of the 3GPP CAPIF Core Function, developed by project partners: Telefonica I+D and Fogus Innovations & Services P.C.

To avoid duplication and inconsistency of approach between the various API specifications that 3GPP has released, the development of a common API framework (CAPIF) has been considered. CAPIF includes common aspects applicable to any northbound service APIs. As such, it is a complete 3GPP API framework that covers functionality related to: on-board and off-board API invokers, register and release APIs that need to be exposed, discovering APIs by third entities, as well as authorization and authentication. CAPIF functionality is considered as a cornerstone in the realization of 5G openness, since it allows secure exposure of 5G core APIs to third party domains, and also, enables third parties to define and expose their own APIs. Indeed, CAPIF has become already a fundamental feature for the 3GPP SA6, targeting the interaction of Verticals with the 5G system. More precisely, CAPIF compliance is required in i) the development of Vertical Application Enablers (VAEs) for various industries (V2X, Factories of the Future, etc.), ii) the realization of the Service Enabled Architecture Layer (SEAL), as well as iii) the implementation of the service side of Edge Computing services.
