High-tech and affordable 5G network roll-out to every corner

Deliverables

Hardware elements and usage in Affordable5G solutions

This first deliverable is devoted to identification and analysis of hardware and its potential enhancements in T2.1.

Open platform usage developments

It reports the methodology followed in T3.1 to select the software components of the Affordable5G system. The deliverable will also report the partial developments on RAN, 5GCore, edge, management systems and security carried out in T3.2 and T3.3

Data Management Plan

T6.4. It defines the guidelines for data management in the project in order to ensure a high level of data quality and accessibility for final users and stakeholders and to allow the application of data analytics techniques.

Dissemination, Communication and Standardisation report

Regular annual report about the activities of the tasks on dissemination, standardisation and 5GPPP collaboration.

State of the art, technical system requirements analysis and pilot element descriptions

It covers the description of pilot components and its requirements and the analysis of the state of the art.

Affordable5G building blocks fitting in 5G system architecture

This report describes the architecture, highlighting the advancements in Affordable5G (T1.2) and also T1.3 and T1.4 contribute.

Integration and Affordable5G roll-out plans

This report gathers the integration strategy, infrastructure elements and KPIs for pilot application, and the first release of the pilot’s elaboration

Dissemination and Communication channels and plan

It outlines the strategic plan for disseminate and communicate the technical achievements that arise during the project’s lifecycle.

Value proposition, stakeholder analysis and initial business models

This reports the business models, value proposition and stakeholder analysis (T5.2) in the first period of the project
