5G technology offers innovative network services to vertical players, able to boost their service portfolio in critical areas that could not be fully addressed with 4G systems. However, 5G networks are complex systems, massively relying on the virtualization of network and computing resources, which requires specific skills to fully exploit their potential. This may represent a hard barrier for vertical stakeholders to effectively test and use innovative services on 5G networks. Our solution…

5G experiment design through Blueprint
Automatic deployment, execution and analysis of 5G experiments using the 5G EVE platform
The design and results of the first 5G end to end experiment deployed on the 5G EVE infrastructure are presented, all the steps required to design and execute a simple experiment are presented and an analysis and discussion of the results are provided.


Network slices for vertical industries
A component of the 5G-Transformer system, named vertical slicer, is presented, which acts as the interface to verticals and has two main functionalities: allowing verticals to define vertical services based on a set of service blueprints and arbitrating among several vertical services in case of resource shortage.
5G-TRANSFORMER: Slicing and Orchestrating Transport Networks for Industry Verticals
The design of the next generation mobile transport networks to simultaneously support the needs of various vertical industries with diverse range of networking and computing requirements is dives into.
Adaptive Service Deployment using In-Network Mediation
The results demonstrate the feasibility of adopting in-network mediation to enable adaptive application deployment using declarative intents and design a general architecture and associated algorithms to realise intent formulation and processing for mapping application intents to service providers.
Network Slicing to Enable Scalability and Flexibility in 5G Mobile Networks
This article argues for network slicing as an efficient solution that addresses the diverse requirements of 5G mobile networks, thus providing the necessary flexibility and scalability associated with future network implementations, and investigates the revenue potential of network slicing.
OSDF: An Intent-based Software Defined Network Programming Framework
An SDN-based network programming framework, the Open Software Defined Framework (OSDF), is proposed that provides a high level Application Programming Interface (API) that can be used by managers and network administrators to express network requirements for applications and policies for multiple domains.
SDN/Cloud Solutions for Intent-Based Networking
The QoS balance formula for the hybrid network (physical and in cloud) and the scheme of such network is presented and the advantages and disadvantages are analyzed.
P4I/O: Intent-Based Networking with P4
P4I/O provides an intent-driven interface that can be used to install and/or remove P4 programs on the switches when needed and which is easy to use, and implement a proof-of-concept to demonstrate that intent modifications can be done on the fly.
Charting an intent driven network
This work sketches an incrementally-deployable design to serve as a stepping stone towards a practical realization of intent driven networking within today's Internet.
JGraphT—A Java Library for Graph Data Structures and Algorithms
