5GENESIS Malaga platform aims the validation of selected 5G KPIs in indoor and outdoor 5G scenarios. Technologies in the platform are focussed on integrating 5G with other access technologies (4G, WiFi, fiber, …) with great automation capabilities to execute experiments both unattended and with real users. The initial plan, in the context of the project funded in ICT-17 call (5GENESIS), considers KPIs related to capacity, speed, latency, reliability, density of users, location accuracy, service creation time and network management (CAPEX/OPEX). The use cases to validate the KPIs are related to Mission Critical Services. Once the platform has been validated as a 5G environment, it will support other use cases and KPIs, coming from ICT-19 or from other projects. Expected use cases should require features related to eMBB and/or URLLC.
The physical infrastructure is mainly hosted and operated by University of Malaga (UMA), Malaga city (Police Department) and Telefonica. It is composed by 4 big areas:
What can be supported:
Fully software-automated, 5GNR, LTE-A, NBIoT, LTE-WiFi aggregation, GPS emulation, Slice Manager, NFV (Openstack, OpenNebula, MANO orchestrator,) and SDN in transport and core, edge computing for low latency services.
Vertical can deploy their own services in the platform or can connect their remote services to the platform
The platform offers the common 5GENESIS Experimenter Interface to describe services and experiments to be executed in the platforms
The platform also expose some internal interfaces to connect vertical services and devices (most of them are 3GPP interfaces)
Projects using the platform: The starting point for 5GENESIS Malaga platform is the instance of TRIANGLE testbed hosted at UMA. This platform is (was) already used in the projects FLEX, Fed4FIRE, Fed4Fire+, Q4Health and TRIANGLE.
Vendors/Manufacturers/Providers providing support for the platform: The platform (including TRIANGLE and new contributions by 5GENESIS partners) will integrate equipment and software coming from Keysight Technologies, Polaris Networks, Nokia, ATOS, Runel, Athonet, Eurecom, Airbus, Nemergent, Fogus Innovations & Services.
Disclaimer: This document describes a platform to be built in the context of 5GENESIS H2020 project. The technical aspects refer to the platform as expected by the end of 2019 according to the work plan. The objective of the document is to facilitate the preparation of project proposals for the call ICT 19. This is not a contractual document, and features could be changed by 5GENESIS consortium due to incidences or to the feedback from the EC. Any interested entity may approach the platform operators and may request using the platform on a non-profit basis as part of a research and development activity. Usage of the platform is subject of a negotiated legal agreement and compensation scheme covering the associated effort and operational cost of the platform provider and contributors.
