5G NORMA @4th International Workshop on 5G Architecture, Paris, 25 May 2017

25 May 2017 @ 8:00 - 17:00 CEST

5G NORMA is organising the 4th International Workshop on 5G Architecture to be held in Paris on 25 May 2017 alongside with the IEEE ICC 2017.

It is essential to introduce a 5G End-to-End Architecture that allows for a cost- and time-efficient introduction of 5G, that integrates a variety of novel technologies rolled out in various stages, and that is sufficiently flexible to accommodate applications and services that are yet to be envisioned. For example, to allow 5G to support low latency, it is not sufficient to design a low latency RAN, since latency is an end-to-end factor and hence requires the joint design of RAN, Core and Transport Networks. Hence, the new E2E Architecture will have to be programmable, software driven and managed holistically to enable a diverse services in a profitable way. This requires novel ways of designing the mobile network architecture (radio access, core and transport network), operating the network, and offering interfaces. A number of topics will be considered and should be the center focus of a paper:

  • Flexible RAN architectures and C-RAN
  • Functional split and function placement
  • Multi-service architectures
  • 5G wireless technologies
  • Cloud-based 5G mobile architectures
  • Network Function Virtualization
  • Multi-tenancy architectures
  • Joint computation/communication architecture/algorithms
  • Applications to vertical industries, e.g., Industrial IOT, V2X
  • Resilience and Security
  • Convergence of RAN and Core Network
  • SDN for radio access
  • Novel mobility management
  • Edge computing
  • Network Slicing, in particular RAN Slicing
  • Multi-Connectivity/RAT
