The 5G standards provided by 3GPP already bring support for mission critical communications, with support for low latency flows, dynamic allocation of resources, resource isolation and push-to-video. However, despite such features, diverse applications, known as Application Functions (AFs) in the 3GPP Service Based Architecture (SBA), need to communicate their specialized requirements to the 5G Core (5GC) when employed in mission critical services. With Sec5G, OneSource aims at validating the concept of employing NEF as the entry point for Public Protection and Disaster Recovery (PPDR) services in the 5GC, enabling the adjustment of 5G networks to the requirements of such services. While NEF can enable the wider adoption of 5G by providing a set of functionalities allowing a dynamic configuration of the network, performance, security and reliability are of utmost importance for PPDR missions.
5G-enabled Context and situational Awareness detection with machine learninG techniques of city objects in Experimental vertical instances - 5G-CAGE
5G-CAGE aims at deploying a City Safety solution as a new NFV Network Service into 5GINFIRE Experimental Vertical Instance (EVI), called City Object Detection (CODet), for automatic detection and location of certain city elements and objects. Specifically, 5G-CAGE provides a CODet VxF to detect license car plates via advanced Computer Vision and Machine Learning algorithms, by means of the monitoring and analytics of video streams collected from cameras equipped in vehicles connected to the Smart City infrastructure. The 5G-CAGE City Safety solution has been exercised and successfully tested in the 5GINFIRE IT-Av Automotive Environment belonging to the 5GINFIRE project ecosystem.
5G Smart City Robotic Surveillance Platform - RobotView5G
NETICTECH is developing the Wireless Robotic Surveillance Platform “RobotView”, enabling real-time video surveillance using WiFi and mobile networks from remote controlled robots, drones and other video-monitoring devices. The platform is designed for police, security and rescue forces to enable surveillance and operation in places hazardous to humans. In times of heightened security risks, RobotView can save the lives of officers by allowing them to send a robot or drone and remotely watch the video from the installed cameras in real-time. RobotView is not bound to a specific solution, it is a vendor-agnostic system, allowing to transmit video coming from cameras installed on robots, drones or vehicles using wireless networks. The system has adaptation mechanism to ....
Hybrid Communications to Foster 5G Vehicular Services (SURROGATES)
In vehicular scenarios, on-board units (OBU) have evolved from specific purpose units designed for telematic services such as fleet management or road tolling, to generic networked nodes capable of interconnecting other in-vehicle devices, acting as mobile routers. Although virtualization of network and computing nodes is a reality in cloud deployments, it is expanding to the edge of the access network in scenarios involving multi-access edge computing. This scenario presents a good frame to offload data analytics tasks from OBUs, which should focus on actions of higher priority such as maintaining vehicle connectivity, managing communication flows or applying security measures to data traffic.
Vulnerable Road Users Safety using a hybrid Cloud RAN and Edge Computing model - VRU-safe
The main concept of VRU-Safe is related to the Safety of the Vulnerable Road Users, and the intelligent and effective prediction and avoidance of such accidents using technologies and concepts, which will be included in the 5th Generation Mobile System (5G), such as Edge Computing, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Cloud RAN. VRU-Safe’s primary objective is the experimental evaluation of a network service with computing and networking capabilities, which is able to operate in a distributed manner utilizing either MEC, or Cloud capabilities (in the form of virtualized network functions), depending on the location and the network information of the involved OBUs and VRUs.
DynamIc REsource instantiation and ConTrol for 5G content delivery netwORks (DIRECTOR 5G)
The DIRECTOR 5G project was conceived to investigate and to further improve the Quality-of-Experience (QoE) of end-users in 5G wireless network environments by utilising the Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture and the HyDRA radio slicing technology. For the purpose of this project, a number of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) have been developed to support the propagation of NDN content requests (Interests) and replies (Data) over the Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) radio access technology using virtualized HyDRA radio slices and the 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) technology.
Context-Aware Video Controller for autonomous transport and security monitoring
Objectives of the CAVICO project is to demonstrate a vertical application in a 5G infrastructure that is addressed to the automotive industry. This application allows controlling the video stream from the on-board camera in the function of transmission QoS and video QoE parameters measured by specific software components. The application system was designed and developed as a dedicated VNF that provides a control feedback to video camera’s encoder on the basis of a set of quality measurements. Due to it a stream throughput and video quality can be optimized and tuned to instant throughput of the radio channel and to user’s expectations that can depend on use cases. In this deliverable results of the experiments are shown.

Service Function Chaining orchestration application for low latency guarantees (SFCLola)
The adoption of Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networking technologies allows network infrastructure operator flexibly orchestrating resources to provide tenants with their own virtual network. However, access to computing and network resource management APIs is typically allowed only within the infrastructure domain and rarely disclosed to tenants for security and performance reasons. This may severely limit tenants capability in coping with demands of application-tailored network services, including Service Function Chaining (SFC).
This work proposes an SFC platform (called SFCLola) providing tenants with a latency-aware SFC management while minimizing support required from infrastructure operators.
The platform has a two-level architecture:
TelMed5G - Professional telemedical platform for 5G networks
Currently, the type and level of medical competence is highly location-dependent. The procedures involving travel of either the patient or medical personnel are risky, costly and time-consuming. Especially in emergency situations time constraints often make multidisciplinary expertise impossible. Remote collaboration of doctors is an approach to solving these issues, saving both lives and money.
5G-SAFTEYTesting network slicing for the 5G Public Safety vertical
The 5G-SAFETY experiment has deployed a use case on top of the NITOS testbed, providing two services over two network slices, with a focus on the QoS-aware control and Network Functions Virtualization. The main goal has been the implementation of two competing network slices on NITOS’ LTE infrastructure: one emulating a MVNO Public Safety slice with high throughput and reduced latency requirements and the other emulating an OTT service provider (delay tolerant – best effort slice). Different resource management algorithms were implemented and evaluated in terms of performance gains when operating under computational resource limitations. The main conclusion of this experiment is that in NFV scenarios with two concurrent network slices sharing the same NFVI, dynamic allocation of resources based on QoS parameters observed by virtual probes is indeed an effective strategy to improve the network performance of the priority slice when it is subjected to heavy load.
