The 5G-TRANSFORMER project participated in the First Workshop on Control and management of Vertical slicing including the Edge and Fog Systems (COMPASS) which took place in Barcelona, Spain on April 15, 2018 in conjunction with IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (IEEE WCNC 2018).
This COMPASS Workshop is a result of merging the First International Workshop on Edge and Fog Systems for 5G & Beyond (IWEF) with The COntrol and Management of network slices for VERTicals (COMVERT) Workshop, creating this new COMPASS workshop, and is co-organized by the 5G-TRANSFORMER and 5G-CORAL projects.
The workshop was organized in two separated sessions, the first one focused on the 5G for Vertical Industries and the second one on the Fog and MEC integration. In the first session of the workshop the participants deep dived into different architectural designs aimed at optimally supporting the requirements of vertical industries in future 5G networks.
During the workshop, different contributions were made from 5G-TRANSFORMER. In the picture above, Thomas Deiss from NOKIA and WP3 leader of the 5G-TRANSFORMER project presented a paper focused on the Vertical Slicer component of the 5G-TRANSFORMER system architecture.
The presentations are available for download at:
Presentation 1- Network Slices for Vertical Industries
Presentation 2- Service Orchestration and Federation for Verticals
Presentation 3- 5G Mobile Transport and Computing Platform for Verticals
Presentation 4- MEC-aware Cell Association for 5G Heterogeneous Networks

5G TRANSFORMER project organized its last network meeting in Pisa (Italy). The event took place from 8-10 April 2018 and brought together all the consortium to discuss about the activities carried out until now and beyond on the frame of the project.
March 17-23, 2018 the 101st IETF meeting took place in London. IETF is one of the key standards development organizations (SDOs) where 5G-TRANSFORMER is actively contributing.
During this meeting, different contributions were made from 5G-TRANSFORMER partners:
- “Network Virtualization Research Challenges” (draft-irtf-nfvrg-gaps-network-virtualization). This document, adopted by the Network Function Virtualization (NFV) research group, identifies and describes open research challenges for network virtualization. One of the documented challenges is precisely multi-domain orchestration. The Research Group Last Call issued by the NFVRG resulted in some final reviews that have been addressed by the authors. Now the document is waiting for final publication as Re quest For Comments (RFC) to the IETF. The draft is available at https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-irtf-nfvrg-gaps-network-virtualization/ and the slides at https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/101/materials/slides-101-nfvrg-01-1-draft-irtf-nfvrg-gaps-network-virtualization-00
- “Multi-domain Network Virtualization” (draft-bernardos-
nfvrg-multidomain), a document which was initiated by the 5G-PPP phase-1 project 5GEx now has authors also from 5G-TRANSFORMER, as we are leveraging some of the multi-domain concepts from the work done by 5GEx. 5G-TRANSFORMER aims at evolving these concepts and making this document progress further. The document was presented at the NFVRG session. The document is available at https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-bernardos-nfvrg-multidomain/, and the slides presented
- The network slicing effort where Luis Contreras is actively participating had a new non-WG forming BoF on “Common operation an management of network slicing” (COMS). The material presented by Luis is available at https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/101/materials/slides-101-coms-motivation-for-management-of-network-slicing-and-ietf-coms-work-from-operators-view-point-luis-m-contreras-00
- “Proxy Mobile IPv6 extensions for Distributed Mobility Management” (draft-bernardos-dmm-pmipv6-dlif-01), a document which describes mobility approaches that can be applied to support also mobility of virtualization resources. This document was presented at the DMM WG session and was decided to be adopted as WG (pending confirmation on the mailing list). Slides are available here: https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/101/materials/slides-101-dmm-proxy-mobile-ipv6-extensions-for-dmm-00
- “IPv6-based discovery and association of Virtualization Infrastructure
Manager (VIM) and Network Function Virtualization Orchestrator (NFVO)” (draft-bernardos-nfvrg-vim-discovery), a document which describes mechanisms allowing dynamic discovery of virtualization resources and orchestrators in IPv6-based networks, was presented at the NFVRG session. Slides are available at https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/101/materials/slides-101-nfvrg-01-3-draft-bernardos-nfvrg-vim-discovery-00
- “Service Function discovery in fog environments” (draft-bernardos-sfc-discovery-00), discussing the need for service function discovery mechanisms and propose some solutions for sfc-aware nodes to discover available service functions in fog environments. The document was presented at the SFC WG session. Slides can be found here: https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/101/materials/slides-101-sfc-service-function-discovery-in-fog-environments-00
- “A YANG Data Model for Microwave Topology” (draft-ye-ccamp-mw-topo-yang-00) and “A framework for Management and Control of microwave and millimeter wave interface parameters“ (draft-ietf-ccamp-microwave-framework). The first document was presented at the CCAMP WG session, and slides are available at: https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/101/materials/slides-101-ccamp-sessa-3-a-yang-data-model-for-microwave-topology-01
The last edition of 5G Summit took place in Trento, Italy, on March 6, 2018. It was the first time the event is organized in Italy. IEEE 5G Summits were organized by IEEE Communication Society within a strategic framework based on the principles that embrace Industry’s interests and priorities, while integrating IEEE and ComSoc’s objectives. In order to engage industry members with high value and innovative technologies, IEEE Communication Society planned to hold a series of high impact one day Summits in emerging technology areas (e.g., SDN/NFV, 5G, IoT, Big Data, and Cybersecurity). These one day summits provided a platform for the industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from the industry and academic community to collaborate and exchange ideas in this emerging technology that may help in driving the standards and rapid deployment.
