“Network Programmability Framework for Vertical Applications in the Beyond 5G Era” Paper Presentation at EuCNC 2022

Harilaos Koumaras EVOLVED-5G technical manager presented the conference paper entitled “Network Programmability Framework for Vertical Applications in the Beyond 5G Era on June 9th 2022. Programmability in 5G Core (5GC) enables operators to open telecom network capabilities and services to third-party developers, allowing them to establish innovative network-aware vertical applications. This openness is materialized through the 5G Service Based Architecture (SBA) that exposes the network intelligence to the vertical applications through standardized Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Building upon the application empowerment that the programmable APIs can offer unleashing new business potentials, the ecosystem of Network Applications (NetApps) emerges to stand as a facilitating middle-ware between the network and applications. This study presents the architectural and implementation aspects of an open all-encompassing framework for NetApps considering their entire spanning from their development to their final publication in the market. The paper has been created by Harilaos Koumaras (NCSR Demokritos, Greece); Dimitris Tsolkas (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece); Javier Garcia Rodrigo (Telefónica I+D, Spain); David Artuñedo Guillen (Telefónica, Spain); Bruno Garcia (University of Malaga, Spain); Ricardo Marco (Atos Spain, Spain); Apostolis K. Salkintzis (Motorola, Greece); Dimitrios Fragkos (National Centre for Scientific Research Demokritos (NCSRD) & University of Peloponnese, Greece); Georgios Makropoulos (NCSR Demokritos, Greece); Fotini Setaki (COSMOTE Mobile Telecommunications S.A. Greece, Greece); Almudena Diaz Zayas and Pedro Merino (University of Malaga, Spain); Vaios Koumaras (INFOLYSiS P.

5G Applicability Seminar by UPV

On the 30th of May Universitat Politècnica de València organized a seminar entitled “5G Application”. This seminar included several presentations and demo sessions of EVOLVED-5G and 5G in general. In this seminar there was a special presentation for 5G programmability, about the EVOLVED-5G NetApps and the EVOLVED-5G framework by NCSR Demokritos partners. At this seminar INFOLYSiS and Immersion, SMEs of the project, had the chance to demonstrate their NetApps. The seminar started with a brief introduction about the the 5G connection.

“5G programmability and development of Network Applications (NetApps)” Presentation

Dr Harilaos Koumaras from NCSR “DEMOKRITOS”, EVOLVED-5G’s technical manager took part and presented “5G programmability and development of Network Applications (NetApps)” in the 1st Open Annual Workshop on Future ICT organised by 8BELLS. on 25th of May.

5G Forum 2022

EVOLVED-5G project, took 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 took place. Telefonica and University of Malaga represented EVOLVED-5G with the presentations entitled ” “EVOLVED-5G CAPIF core function”, along with other 5G uses cases that TID is implementing also with UMA in Málaga.”, “EVOLVED-5G Netapp ecosystem, 5G programmability and the Netapp lifecycle” and “EVOLVED-5G agricultural use case and Netapp ” to demonstrate that EVOLVED-5G activities go even beyond i4.0.

EVOLVED-5G first technical tests

The University of Malaga and CAFA Tech teams conducted the first Technical Tests on the campus of the University of Malaga on April 26-28 2022. The aim was to test the connection of a CAFA Robot onboard 5G modem to 5G NSA (Non-Standalone) and SA (Stand-Alone) networks and 4K video streaming over 5G NSA and SA networks directly to the CAFA Video Safety Analysis Application (vApp) running on the University of Malaga platform. 4K video streaming worked over both the 5G NSA and the SA and a number of advances have also been made in the video analysis vApp deployment.
