TRIANGLE 5G Applications and Devices Benchmarking. TRIANGLE has a new testbed which enables application developers and device manufacturers in the evolving 5G sector to test and benchmark new mobile applications in Europe. This testbed utilises existing and extended FIRE testbeds. The testbed framework will evaluate Quality of Experience and enable certification for new mobile applications and devices.

Q4Health 4G Experiments in Wifi handover, virtualisation and scheduling. The Q4HEALTH project is an innovation action focused on the optimization of real time video for emergency services over LTE. The project is implemented as a set of experiments conducted over the FIRE platforms PerformLTE and OpenAirInterface. The motivation is to study video performance in scenarios with wearable live video for first responders, improving its response on LTE-A with a particular innovation focus on 3GPP release 12.

5G Exchange Network Slicing and Public Safety Slicing. The 5GEx project is creating an agile exchange mechanism for contracting, invoking and settling for the wholesale consumption of resources and virtual network services which can be provisioned in less than 90 minutes and rapidly invoked.This will enable network operators, applications providers and other stakeholders in the 5G supply chain to deliver new service value for 5G customers and at the same creating and enhancing revenue-generating potential for 5G providers, third party verticals and others in the supply chain.

Key Partners:  Orange, Ericsson, Huawei, HPE, Telefonica, DT, Telenor, Atos, Telecom Italia


SliceNet 5G network slicing. SliceNet radically addresses the challenges in managing, controlling and orchestrating new services on 5G network infrastructures by setting up a framework which maximizes the sharing of network resources. This will allow network operators and business users in vertical sectors a high-degree of flexibility. SliceNet is focused on 5G Smart Grid (self-healing), 5G eHealth (ambulance) services and 5G Smart City (IoT) as the primary use cases to contribute to Utilities/Energy, Health and Smart City sectors.
