FogRAN: A glimpse into the 5G- CORAL solution

Fog spans across the continuum between things and clouds. Yet its key challenges lie at the extreme edge with mobile, volatile and constrained computing and networking resources.

  • 5G-CORAL is developing a FogRAN solution which marries the Fog and the RAN (including M-RATs) at the extreme edge
  • The baseline solution includes two sub-systems: the EFS and the OCS
  • The solution is being specified, implemented and tested for 4 main use cases all involving multiple RATs: (1) AR/VR; (2) Robotics; (3) Connected Car; and (4) IoT GW
  • First trials will test the baseline solution in Nov’18 in Taiwan. These will be followed by a refined solution and final trials in Summer 2019
