The Software Network WG in 5G-PPP is working on key research topics related to Software Networking including software defined concepts, Networked Clouds, IoT and Services. For phase 2, NGPaaS (Dr Bessem Sayadi, Nokia Bell-Labs France) and Slicenet (Cristian Patachia, Orange Romania) are the new co-chair the WG.
NGPaaS is organizing a workshop in IEEE BMSB 2018: Accelerating Microservices, Design and Development.
The aim is to bring together leading researchers in both academia and industry, and to provide a forum for researchers from diverse backgrounds to share their views on design and development of microservices-based cloud-native 5G system and applications, and to have an open dialogue on the delivery pipeline and its acceleration research. The goal is to identify key cloud-native enablers and technologies that can deliver significant performance, capacity, coverage, and user-experience improvements in future high performance microservice development and operational environments.
It has been a busy week for the NGPaaS consortium. On Thursday 14th December we concluded our third face-to-face project meeting hosted at the University of Ghent (BE). Very good technical discussion covering the ambition of NGPaaS: Telco grade, FGPA, Abstraction, IoT, PaaS, Slicing, Hybrid Cloud, PoC, Dev For Operations, MSP, Unikernel, Container, PoP…
It has been a busy week for the NGPaaS consortium. On Thursday 28th September we concluded our second face-to-face project meeting hosted at the University of Milano-Bicocca (IT). Very dense agenda to cover the different technical topics to build the new PaaS being telco-grade and supporting the mix and match feature.
More will come in our deliverables.
NGPaaS consortium published press release introducing its objective about the development of a next generation platform-as-a-service (NGPaaS) model for 5G networks.
In addition to Bell Labs, Nokia Israel is also part of the consortium, as are Atos, BT, and Orange. The University of Milano-Bicocca, and the Technical University of Denmark are also members. The consortium also includes international R&D hub IMEC.
Other members include IoT company Vertical M2M, French research institute B-Com, cloud management firm OnApp, and virtualisation specialist Virtual Open Systems.
NGPaaS participated in EUCNC 2017 conference in 5G-PPP Phase 2 session and The Steering Board meeting where the first time projects from phase 1 and phase 2 meet and discuss.
