VirtuWind demo and poster presentation at the CoC COM Industry day (June 21, 2017), on Flexible Application-to-Cloud Softwarized 5G Networks. In this event, our demo was entitled “Flexible Application-to-Cloud Softwarized 5G Networks”. The demo showed a complete wireless access network (RAN and EPC) interconnected through an SDN core network with two different slices (easily mapped to tenant). Each slice has its own controller and both controllers can access to their own slice through the Hypervisor. The demo shows that the requirements of any slice are kept despite the wrongful use of the other.
Hosted Cross-Project Workshop (30/03/2017, Berlin, Germany), with the participation of VirtuWind, SONATA and 5GEx. The objectives of that cross-project workshop were to build a joint understanding of the approaches followed by the different projects and exchange experiences on technologies used and architectural designs.
“Energy meets 5G Mobile Networks” workshop (14 March, Brussels), European Commission (DG ENERGY & DG CONNECT), Participation in Panel discussion: “5G opportunities supporting mission critical power system services – What mission-critical services of future grids could benefit from enhanced networking capabilities? What new capabilities are planned to be offered by 5G?”
Mobile World Congress 2017 – KCL in partnership with GSMA demonstrated a tactile communication use case as part of VirtuWind’s low latency network solution. The demo allowed the visitors to draw on screen using a robotic arm which streamed position data for the on-screen cursor over an emulated network. The application returned feedback to the robot in terms of resistance and stiffness of the surface being drawn on. Users could experience the effects of latency by selecting the roundtrip time for the communication between robot and application. Focus was placed on industrial use cases for low latency networks.
