5G Verticals INNovation Infrastructure

5G Verticals INNovation Infrastructure

Objective

5G-VINNI will accelerate the uptake of 5G in Europe by providing an end-to-end (E2E) facility that validates the performance of new 5G technologies by operating trials of advanced vertical sector services. The 5G-VINNI strategy to achieve this involves: (1) Designing the most advanced 5G facility to demonstrate that technical and business 5G KPIs can be met, (2) Building and operating 7 interworking instances of the E2E facility to prove the capabilities and openness of the system, (3) Creating user friendly zero-touch orchestration, operations and management systems for the 5G-VINNI facilities to ensure operational efficiencies and optimal resource use, (4) Proving the 5G-VINNI capabilities through extensive experiments and measurements of performance against the 5G KPIs, (5) Developing a viable 5G ecosystem model to support the NaaS infrastructure provision as a sustainable business beyond the project, and (6) Promoting the value of 5G-VINNI results to the relevant standards bodies and open source communities. The 5G-VINNI E2E facility will demonstrate the achievement of 5G KPIs across a range of combinations and permutations of new 5G access technologies and end-user equipment types interconnected by the most advanced 5G core network technologies available. For this 5G-VINNI will leverage the latest 5G technologies, including results from previous 5G PPP projects. This approach employs Network Function Virtualization, Network Slicing and a rigorous automated testing campaign to validate the 5G KPIs under various combinations of technologies and network loads. To ensure realistic load scenarios 5G-VINNI will create and make available an openness framework to give verticals and peer projects easy access to the 5G-VINNI facilities, both legally and technically, e.g. via open APIs. The 5G-VINNI facilities include 7 infrastructure instances in nationally supported 5G nodes across Europe; this number may be expanded as the ICT-19 projects come on-line in 2019.
