SNOB-5G (Scalable Network Backhauling for 5G) project team presented its final results in the closing event of the project, which took place on past 25th of July.
This project objective was to create solutions for beyond 5G networks with mmWave backhauling links, with solutions for 5G in Ultra-Dense Networks (UDNs) with Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), to allow the support of services with critical requirements in terms of bandwidth and latencies.
The IT team developed and demonstrated in the event the outcomes, respectively: the impact of different blockings in the mmWave communications; network coding in mmWave for services in Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications (URLLC); in-band monitoring with P4 for SDN control based on 5QI; core disaggregation in 5G private networks; content distribution with IPFS in a MEC based scenario.
In the end, the proposed solution will be validated in two municipalities, under distinct city-wide use cases with specific and challenging requirements.
The SNOB-5G project contributed to deploying 5G in existing street furniture to overcome the current limitations related to the availability and installation costs of wired connections that support backhaul communication. In this way, the mission of the innovative project was to have a substantial impact in delivering new value-added services, building highly resilient 5G networks, and providing security and privacy services, always with a single purpose: sustainability.
