SLICENET: End-to-End Cognitive Network Slicing and Slice Management Framework in Virtualised Multi-Domain, Multi-Tenant 5G Networks
Three vertical use cases were identified for the 5G PPP Phase 2 SliceNet project slicing architecture development and associated pilots as follows:
The objective of the eHealth use case pilot is to use dynamic 5G slicing for in ambulance diagnostic service s for patients suffering from stroke.
The objective of the SliceNet 5G Smart Grid pilot is to improve electrical power grid Fault Detection Isolation and Restoration (FDIR), thereby reducing frequency and duration of power outages.
The Smart City use case seeks to define a 5G network slicing architecture for Smart Lighting application, such as metering solution (gas, energy, water), remote monitoring of city infrastructure (pollution, temperature, humidity, noise), real-time traffic information and control, city or building lights management and public safety alerts for improved emergency response times.
In the first year of the project, the following technical progress was achieved:
In the second year, the following technical progress was achieved in the project:
The eHealth use case contributes to the global competitiveness of European 5G systems by providing prioritised life critical video streaming from inside a high-speed moving ambulance, through dynamic network slicing, coupled with prioritised quality of service. The pilot has achieved reliable and dependable Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (with ‘zero perceived’ downtime). SliceNet partners have developed an innovative 5G connected telemedicine system that supports edge-based machine learning to provide paramedics and hospital clinicians with rapid prehospital in-ambulance diagnostics that enhance and improve patient outcome. Commerciaisation opportunities lie in the potential to detect and treat stroke patients pre-hospital or in-ambulance.
The impact of the Smart Grid use case contributes to the “global competitiveness of European 5G systems” through innovative solutions in the Smart Grid area. It uses self-healing solutions which
The pilot includes an energy utility and a telecommunications operator supplying the Smart Grid equipment and network infrastructure necessary for providing the E2E Network Slice to the vertical. Using these 5G technology URLLC capabilities, energy companies can implement the Self-Healing Smart Grid scenarios and save costs/improve customer satisfaction by reducing the frequency and duration of outages to consumers.
The impact of the Smart City lighting use case is innovation in programmable infrastructure deployment with 5G network resource, slice and services monitoring and collected data explosion. This includes
