SESAME targets innovations around three central elements in 5G:

  • The substantial evolution of the Small Cell concept, already mainstream in 4G, but expected to deliver its full potential in the challenging dense deployment 5G scenarios.
  • Consolidation of multi-tenancy in communications infrastructures; this allows several operators/service providers to engage in new sharing models of both access capacity and edge computing capabilities.
  •  Placement of network intelligence and applications in the network edge through NFV and Edge Cloud Computing.
