Experimenting along the Road to 5G Network Slicing in Brazil

This talk will initially present a testbed that is being developed in the context of the FUTEBOL project, in Europe and Brazil, to enable 5G through end-to-end wireless and optical orchestration. Some experiments on an SDN infrastructure for wireless-optical integration and the interplay between wireless and optical networks for IoT will be commented. Next, some ideas about network slicing in the LTE Radio Access Networks will be discussed.

The talk will introduce a Slice Optimizer component as an extension to LTE’s evolved NodeB in this context. Finally, the talk will present an adaptive mechanism for LTE P-GW virtualization using SDN and NFV, as well as the possible integration of this mechanism to Open5GCore platform.
