SESAME is organizing a Special Session on "Development of a Cloud-enabled “Small Cell as a Service” concept, for Multi-Tenancy and Edge Services in the 5G Framework" at the next EuCNC in Oulu, that will take place on 12-15 of June 2017.
The proposed Special Session focuses on the recent innovations around three central elements -or pillars- in 5G: (i) The placement of network intelligence and applications in the network edge through Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) and Edge Cloud Computing; (ii) the substantial evolution of the Small Cell (SC) concept, already mainstream in 4G but expected to deliver its full potential in the challenging high dense 5G scenarios, and; (iii) 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. The above “pillars” may drastically affect future 5G design and
deployment in modern European markets, in particular as they implicate -either separately and/or jointly- for the proper “inclusion” of innovative features that may affect networks for
the provision/offering of innovative and modern solutions and/or other services for the immediate benefit of the market.
There will be invited talks coming from various 5G-PPP projects with relevant thematic domains of interest.
