The implementation of this project will allow the design and integrated validation of a new set of products, able to become part and give services within the future 5G networks, collecting efforts from different technology companies in the telecommunications segment, addressing both B2B and B2C models.


These products cover all functional domains of 5G networks, reflecting in their organization this structure of domains: access, core and vertical sectors (differentiated by machine-to-machine and human communications).


The project lasts 36 months, from Jan 2018 to Dec of 2020, and is thus aligned with the 5G calendar.


In the 36 months of the project, access network products (CRAN, CPE, probing) as well as network management and control products (Policy, MANO, AAA / DNS, monitoring) and security products (IDPS) will be specified and designed.


Together, they will support services and products for the areas of IoT (monitoring /control of power distribution networks, railways and vital signs) and broadband multimedia (distribution /video streaming).


Finally, within the scope of the project, all products from all domains will be integrated, validated, tested and demonstrated in an ecosystem that promotes new 5G services, which will benefit from a realistic test environment (an extended university campus).


The 5G project aims to be an instrument for the development and innovation of technology. Presenting as a Technological Objective of the 5G project: the integrated design and validation of a set of products capable of being part of and providing services within the ecosystem of future 5G networks, gathering and harmonizing the efforts of different technological companies in the telecommunications area, both for B2B models such as B2C.


The project is divided into the following more specific objectives:

1. Creation of innovative technology for the 5G ecosystem: development of competitive products and services, aligned with the three main axes of use-cases 5G (enhanced mobile broadband, mission-critical services)


2. Creation of synergistic technology: interoperability of the products developed in the project, developing national strategic alignments, able to develop a cluster of national technologies in which the set is more competitive than the sum of the parts


3. Conception of technologies and low cost solutions: exploitation of open source solutions for the development of products, solutions and services with levels of quality carrier-grade
