Latest updates on SIGMA’s SliceNet Project

02 September, 2019

The H2020 SliceNet project has now entered its final year and the next project meeting will be hosted in Cork by CIT and DellEMC on the 25th-26th September.

The project is at the point where the 5G network slicing technology, at the heart of the project, will now be integrated into our three flagship testbeds in Cork, Aveiro and Bucharest.

CIT and DellEMC have developed an innovative in-ambulance TeleStroke Assessment Service use case, which acts as a demonstrator to showcase this underlying network slicing technology.

The key focus for the meeting will be an integration Hackathon, where around 20-30 networking specialists from all over Europe will be on site at our Cork testbed, where they will integrate their specific project enablers.

In addition, a paper entitled “5G Network Slicing for Mission-critical use cases” authored by four CIT researchers and three DellEMC researchers, has been accepted by the IEEE for presentation at the 5G World Forum conference in Dresden at the beginning of October. Senior CIT researcher Mark Roddy will present this paper at the conference on behalf of his co-authors.
