SDO Impacts of 5G-CLARITY
This 5G PPP project is focused on developing and demonstrating a Beyond 5G (B5G) system for private networks integrating multiple wireless access technologies including 5G, Wi-Fi and LiFi technologies, all operated through AI-based autonomic networking.
The widespread adoption of private 5G networks, requires:
- Seamless interworking between 3GPP 5G access and legacy technologies (e.g. wired Ethernet, IEEE 802.11) -> backwards compatibility.
- Small operational costs-> easy operation and flexible integration with public 5G networks (for CAPEX reduction).
- Ever-increasing network capability portfolio-> ICT-driven network evolution allows for OT-driven service innovation.
Inputs to 5G Standardisation
To realise its vision, 5G-CLARITY has made a significant contribution to three major standards bodies: 3GPP, ETSI and IETF, reported to the 5G-IA Pre-Standardization, which tracks and assesses inputs from projects funded through the 5G public-private partnership. 16 inputs have been accepted so far by:
IETF: Autonomic Networking Integrated Model and Approach (ANIMA); Reliable and Available Wireless (RAW)
