NEC Laboratories Europe and the University of Antwerp – imec, IDLab just published the paper “Building Realistic Experimentation Environments for AI-enhanced Management and Orchestration (MANO) of 5G and beyond V2X systems“. The scientific publication acknowledges the Fed4FIRE+ project, which supported the research work granting open and free access to the Fed4FIRE+ federated testbeds.
The paper has been accepted at the 19th IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC) and will be presented in January 2022. More information about the conference here.
Congratulations to Nina Slamnik-Krijestorac, Miguel Camelo Botero, Luca Cominardi, Steven Latre, and Johann M. Marquez-Barja!
The plethora of heterogeneous and diversified services in 5G and beyond requires from networks to be flexible, adaptable, and programable, i.e., to be able to correspondingly adapt to changes. As human intervention might significantly increase delays in MANagement and Orchestration (MANO) operations, automation and intelligence become imperative for orchestrating services and resources, especially the ones with stringent requirements for latency and capacity, such as Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) services. As virtualization and Artificial Intelligence (AI) promise to mitigate those challenges towards enabling true automation in MANO operations, in this paper we present our effort towards building and fully utilizing the real-life testbeds, such as Smart Highway and Virtual Wall, located in Belgium, to conduct realistic experimentation and validation of distributed orchestration intelligence in a dynamic network such as V2X system.
