5GNORMA and COHERENT 5G PPP projects jointly organise a workshop on Virtualised Coordinated Spectrum Access for 5G Communications Systems at ISWCS 2016 (September 20-23, 2016, Poznan, Poland).
In its 5G White Paper, NGMN demands 5G to provide efficient support of new business models and partnership models across industries. This implies increasingly heterogeneous demands on spectrum resources, their availability and utilization. Greater flexibility is a common requirement to all network components, including spectrum management.
Network virtualization technology is playing a central role in 5G, as it promises to create customer-specific logical networks on a shared infrastructure and thereby increases the flexibility in network utilization and management.
This workshop aims to bring the concepts of dynamic allocation of spectrum to network services and virtualization together and explore if and how novel architectures and technologies based on virtualization can increase the efficiency in spectrum utilization.
