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.

The “5G Programmability” Joint Training Workshop by EVOLVED-5G and the Computer Science department of Athens Metropolitan College took place on the 21st and 22 of March 2022. The first day of the workshop attracted 100 visitors and the second day almost 80 visitors. During this first day of the event, insights about the 5G framework and the context of the EVOLVED-5G project has been shared by our technical manager Harilaos Koumaras. Also, details about NetApps, APIs and the EVOLVED-5G’s NEF EMULATOR were shared by Dimitrios Fragkos, Anastasios Gogos and George Makropoulos, research associates of NCSR “DEMOKRITOS”. During the second day of the event, insights about the NetApp ecosystem of EVOLVED-5G project has been shared by our deputy technical manager Dimitris Tsolkas (Fogus Innovations and Services P.C.). Also EVOLVED-5G partners, Theoni Dounia (INFOLYSiS), Luka Koršič (INTERNET INSTITUTE Ltd) and Andreas Oikonomakis (Zortenet) shared details about the EVOLVED-5G use cases and NetApps. The EVOLVED-5G programme closed by Christina Skoubridou who shared all the information behind the creation to the EVOLVED-5G community!
