This article provides an overview on objectives and first results of the Horizon 2020 project 5G NOvel Radio Multiservice adaptive network Architecture 5GNORMA. With 5G NORMA, leading players in the mobile ecosystem aim to underpin Europe's leadership position in 5G. The key objective of 5G NORMA is to develop a conceptually novel, adaptive and future-proof 5G mobile network architecture. This architecture will allow for adapting the network to a wide range of service specific requirements, resu...

To build a flexible and an adaptable architecture network supporting variety of services and their respective requirements, 5G NORMA introduced a network of functions based architecture breaking the major design principles followed in the current network of entities based architecture. This revolution exploits the advantages of the new technologies like Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) in conjunction with the network slicing and multi-tenancy concepts. ...

The goal envisioned by 5G NORMA is to develop a novel, adaptive and future-proof 5G mobile network architecture. In order to fulfill these requirements, 5G NORMA envisions an extremely flexible architecture to be deployed in a multi-tier distributed data-center. In this paper we focus on the novel mobility management schemes, QoE/QoS, Control and Orchestration mechanisms that are being developed in 5G NORMA. These modules, that follow the software-defined principle, jointly optimize core and acc...

As a chain is as strong as its weakest element, so are the efficiency, flexibility, and robustness of a mobile network, which relies on a range of different functional elements and mechanisms. Indeed, the mobile network architecture needs particular attention when discussing the evolution of 3GPP EPS because it is the architecture that integrates the many different future technologies into one mobile network. This article discusses 3GPP EPS mobile network evolution as a whole, analyzing specific...

Following Mobile Cloud Computing, Mobile Edge Computing and Network Functions Virtualisation tendencies, we envisage the utilization of computationally-enhanced base stations as computing nodes in which Virtual Machines can be deployed to perform computing tasks, leveraging the closeness of computing resources to end-users. This paper presents a seamless approach for the deployment of computationally-enhanced Small- Cells, also applicable to macro base stations, with no impact on the LTE-A archi...

Small cell networks are currently seen as a new way to satisfy the increasing wireless traffic demand. The proximity of base stations to subscribers brings many possibilities for the development of new applications, including new offerings based on cloud computing. Smartphones can directly offload applications to close base stations, provided that these are equipped with additional computational and storage resources. The cloud concept applied in the framework of small cells can also combine rad...

This deliverable defines general framework for consequent technical workpackages in TROPIC. First, scenarios from the business point of view are defined and further transformed to more technical representation. Then, abstraction models are introduced for both communication and computation parts of femto-cloud concept. Furthermore, requirements need to be met to ensure efficient and feasible utilization of the femto-cloud are presented. To enable prove of the femto-cloud concept and to compare th...

This deliverable intends to provide an analysis of the network architecture required for small-cell-cloud computing. The architectural framework considered in this document refers to LTE small cell architecture options outlined in the 3GPP standard.The individual elements for radio, cloud and backhaul are described and various possibilities are considered and compared in order to bring them all together for the operation of a small cell cluster to take place in an LTE environment, taking into ac...
