5G-EmPOWER flexible architecture and high-level programming APIs allow for fast prototyping of apps and services.
In 5G-EmPOWER everything, including radio access, is treated as Virtual Network Function. Data-plane support includes Wi-Fi, LTE, and unikernels.
Complex network services are implemented by chaining different Virtual Network Functions. Self-x features are supported.
Network service programmability is enabled through an intent-driven application framework implemented by the COHERENT SDK.
5G-EmPOWER builds upon a set of high-level programming abstractions providing developers with full visibility of the network state and allowing them to dynamically deploy and orchestrate network services.
Centralized mobility management for Wi-Fi and LTE Networks.
Custom packet processing operations over a precise portion of the traffic.
Deploy custom resource allocation schemes within a network slice.
Manage and orchestrate lightweight virtual network functions.
5G-EmPOWER has been partially supported by the following projects:
Control and Coordination Plane for heterogenous 5G Radio Access Networks.
Management and Orchestration in Multi-access Edge Computing scenarios.
Embedded Network Services for 5G Experiences.
Thanks to the following institutions for activelly contributing to 5G-EmPOWER:
The objective of the WiN research unit is to develop future converged broadband networks and communication infrastructures, which will connect the future Internet of people, content, cloud and things.
