Small Cells coordinAtion for Multi-tenancyand Edge services

SESAME targets innovations around three central elements in 5G: the placement of network intelligence and applications in the network edge through Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) and Edge Cloud Computing; the substantial evolution of the Small Cell concept, already mainstream in 4G but expected to deliver its full potential in the challenging high dense 5G scenarios; and the consolidation of multi-tenancy in communications infrastructures, allowing several operators/service providers to engage in new sharing models of both access capacity and edge computing capabilities.

VIrtualized hybrid satellite-TerrestriAl systems for resilient and fLexible future NetworksVIrtualized hybrid satellite-TerrestriAl systems for resilient and fLexible future Networks

VITAL is an ambitious proposal addressing the combination of Terrestrial and Satellite networks by pursuing two key innovation areas, by bringing Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) into the satellite domain and by enabling Software-Defined-Networking (SDN)-based, federated resources management in hybrid SatCom-terrestrial networks. Enabling NFV into SatCom domain will provide operators with appropriate tools and interfaces in order to establish end-to-end fully operable virtualised satellite networks to be offered to third-party operators/service providers.

Wireless IP NEtwork As a Generic Platform For Location Aware Service Support

The IST WINEGLASS project aimed to exploit IP-based techniques to support mobility and soft-guaranteed QoS, in a wireless Internet architecture incorporating UMTS (3GPP) and WLAN access networks in the same "framework". The main purpose was to explore the potential of this framework in enabling location- and QoS-aware application services for wireless mobile users.
