METAMORPHOSIS - TOPOLOGIES, ARCHITECTURES, BUSINESS MODELS, AND OPERATIONAL CONCEPTS FOR FUTURE VIRTUAL NETWORK OPERATIONS

Objectives

METAMORPHOSIS will

  • Define Reference scenarios and use cases and associated requirements for 5G services for the targeted verticals,
  • Define Business models, value chain configuration evolutions, and the roles of different actors involved per targeted vertical and across verticals,
  • Define integrated satellite terrestrial reference architecture(s) to provision a perceived integrated infrastructure that accommodates the requirements defined by the verticals.
  • Define the integrated satellite terrestrial reference functional architecture, with the associated interfaces (APIs) and the overall management and orchestration (MANO), including those towards OSS/BSS

Challenges

METAMORPHOSIS will consolidate its analysis, present its results defend corresponding contributions in vertical associations meetings, relevant 5G events and / or standardisation bodies.

Benefits

The recommendations of this study will be used by the Agency to identify cross cutting technology developments and pre-deployment integrated pilots of 5G services across the targeted vertical.

Plan

This 12 months project started on September 2018. 

Current status
