In this second episode or the 5GCrosshaul series, Carlos J. Bernardos, from UC3M, explains 5GEX concepts and how they evolve with 5G-Crosshaul into 5G-TRANSFORMER project. The motivations for the development of 5GEx is to transform future 5G networks from dedicated physical networks with dedicated control and dedicated services and resources for different applications to a “network factory” where resources and network functions are traded and provisioned and new infrastructures and services are manufactured by software.
The project addresses the “multi-domain” problem, where, for instance, a vertical client requests a service that lay outside the footprint of their primary provider. The industry needs to be able to address and solve such scenarios in the 5G era.
In this episode, you will learn about the 5GEx architecture, 5GEx application with 5G-Crosshaul and the three building blocks of the 5GCrosshaul approach among other. Finally, the episode will present how all these developments are leading to the creation of the 5G-transformer project, addressed in more detail in future episodes.
