We hope to see you in Ljubjana and tell more about 5GTANGO!

This year's Mobile World Congress 2018 will be one of the dissemination actions for 5GTANGO. Many of the partners are involved in this huge industry event and presents their products, which are related to innovations tackled in 5GTANGO. We have also prepared a professional video for explaining 5GTANGO and show its potencial benefits:

 

 

Be ready to spot it in 5GPPP and 5GIA booth in Hall 7 stand 7K17.

 

Some of the presented partners contributions and locations are the following:

 

ATOS at Hall 2 Stand 2F60

The coordinator of 5GTANGO European R&D project will be present at MWC with a set of demos and solution, the so-called THE ATOS POWERHOUSE with solutions of Software Networks, applied Big Data to Telcos, Cybersecurity and Digital payments.

Regarding the NFV/SDN field, there are four demos;

  • vEPC PoC at ATOS Grenoble Lab (in partnership of Cisco / Red Hat / Juniper and DellEMC). Atos and our partners recently completed large scale vEPC testing. We undertook the audit using multiple traffic models to production-scale expected for a Tier 1 telco. We have a video presenting the project and members of the technical team are on the Atos booth to answer questions and discuss your VNF testing requirements
  • L3 VPN and chained services with NFV BluePlanet orchestration (together with Ciena / Redhat and VMWare). Atos presents a demonstration of the Blue Planet management and orchestration solution. We will show the instantiation of multiple VNFs and orchestrating them to create a service chain.
  • vIMS proposition with Metaswitch. Atos has deployed the Metaswitch vIMS in our Grenoble NFV lab. On the Atos booth we will show the MaX service powered by the Metaswitch vIMS bringing carrier-grade group communications to small businesses, prosumers and families.
  • Common Telco database in partnership with Affirmed Network. Atos showcasing the next generation cloud industrial telco database (SCR, Atos “Standard Common Repository”) with Affirmed Networks, a major provider of virtualized 3GPP EPC. Showcasing a cloud native architecture in which the NFV network functions (VNFs) are stateless frontends, using the Atos SCR to store all subscriber and state data. As an example, an Affirmed MME (Mobility Management Entity) uses LDAP and REST interfaces connecting to a geographically distributed SCR, and a simulated fail-over from one site to another proves that there is full continuity in the cloud for telco-grade user experience.

 

NEC at Hall3 Stand 3M30

Together with telecom service providers and partners, NEC will enable new business model creation, and drive digital transformation by leveraging sophisticated ICT technologies, to create a future beyond imagination.

NEC/Netcracker's award-winning offerings enable businesses of all sizes to transform and keep pace with the rapidly evolving digital economy. SDN/NFV: Comprehensive solutions designed to combat the key challenges of multivendor services while commercializing new services and accelerating revenue growth through optimized cloud networks.

 

Quobis at CS60, booth #2

Quobis’ booth (CS60, booth #2) at the Spanish Pavilion will showcase the new portfolio of Sippo for the telco and enterprise market. While the enterprise portfolio will be disclosed at the ITexpo event in Fort Lauderdale two weeks before the MWC, the telco portfolio will have its premiere in Barcelona.

 

CTTC at CS20, booth #34

This year, CTTC participates in the Mobile World Congress (Barcelona, Feb 26-Mar 1) as an exhibitor. You can learn about:

  • CTTC portfolio of R&D services for the industry: research and innovation contracts, technology alliance, standards support, feasibility studies, license agreements, etc;…and a number of success stories of R&D projects in collaboration with the industry!!
  • The advanced research projects in which CTTC participates: Horizon 2020, European Space Agency, etc.
  • CTTC products and solutions.

 

ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability is organising the second NFV PlugtestsTM event on 15-19 January 2018. The event will be hosted in ETSI's headquarters in Sophia Antipolis, France.

5GTANGO is promoting and actively testing interoperability of SONATA Service Platform 3.1. Interoperability results will be incorporated in SONATA 4.0 powered by 5GTANGO.

More information is provided in ETSI website.

 

After delivering D2.2, we have summarized 5GTANGO architecture in the following blog post.
