ETSI accepted joint PoC from 5GZORRO and 5G-Clarity and partners NXW, i2CAT, TID, UC3M. The PoC is named “PoC#5” in ZSM ant the title is: PoC 5 On-demand Non-Public Networks (NPNs) for industry 4.0: zero-touch provisioning practices in public-private network environments
It will showcase the ability to provision a tailored 5G private network for an industry 4.0 service, upon request (on demand), with no human intervention (zero-touch). In particular, the PoC will demonstrate the automation in the provisioning of a Public Network Integrated Non-Public Network (PNI-NPN) to enable autonomous AGV navigation in a factory for intralogistics. The private network segment, deployed within the factory premises, includes three network domains: access domain (5GNR+Wi-Fi6 technologies combined with the use of AT3S functionality), transport domain (L2 Ethernet network), core domain (5GC). The public network segment includes a pre-trained obstacle detection application to assist AGV trajectory. This application function corresponds to the data network, hosted in a PLMN operator’s telco edge node.
This PoC is developed using the network and service management solutions developed in two European Commission (EC) funded projects, under the H2020 programme: 5G-CLARITY and 5GZORRO. The implementation of these solutions complies with the ZSM standards. More specifically, the design architecture of the use case follows ZSM 002 (ZSM framework), and the workflows governing interactions across the different ZSM services follow the recommendations captured in ZSM 003 (end-to-end slicing) and ZSM 008 (cross-domain orchestration).
