SliceNet and Matilda 5GPPP projects came together for a joint workshop hosted by Orange Romania in the Politehnica University of Bucharest. The two projects are using network slicing to deliver services such as control and monitoring of street lighting in terms of usage, behaviour and power consumption. The projects have come together to collaborate on the Smart City street lighting application which automates network slicing through new 5G architecture.
Marius Iordache, from SliceNet, and Horia Stefanescu from Matilda, both from Orange Romania, presented the smart lighting use case for smart cities, being piloted on a 5G testbed at the campus of the Polythecnic University of Bucharest. A demonstration of the smart lighting was given in the grounds of the University.
