SATIABLE

Objectives The objective of the SATIABLE project is to study the impact of the satellite (GEO, MEO, and LEO), and in general NTNs, in an IAB scenario, envisaging a new topology in which the satellite can be integrated as an IAB-node or an IAB-donor. The study considers the low-level protocols of the 3GPP-NR stack for…

SURPRISE

Objectives Softwarization and virtualization are recent network technologies expected to be more and more adopted in next-generation networks and already intensively used in current terrestrial infrastructures, from cloud environments to mobile networks. They operate in synergy by decoupling network functionalities from the underlying hardware. When used together, they allow the creation of software instances of…

5G-EMERGE

Objectives 5G-EMERGE is a digital transformation project, converging satellite services with online delivery, making use of the 3GPP 5G specification as convergence technology. The project envisages an open multi-tenant ecosystem that seamlessly integrates Near Edges well connected to Satellite Teleport with distributed Far Edges through a virtualised satellite connection to 5G- base stations. This solution…

AMOR

Objectives Italy is one of the richest countries in the World by number of cultural sites per square kilometre; however, geo-morphological, weather related and anthropogenic phenomena pose a constant threat to the structural integrity, and conservation status of the historic monuments and cultural sites. This put at risk the fruition and related economic exploitation of…

ANChOR

Objectives ANChOR objectives are focused on the design and implementation of an integrated infrastructure for 5G Satellite-Terrestrial networks, with data-driven orchestration techniques applied to the optimization of the multi-domain network. The project aims to investigate satellite-based extensions to 5G architectureand use cases, targeting eMBB and mMTC services, analyzing new business models and multi-domain deployments combining…

NB-IoT4Space

Objectives Preliminary analysis have shown that the NB-IoT standard can be used by satellite systems in non-geostationary orbits under certain constraints. However, to enable the integration of user sensors employing this technology, it is necessary to develop an on-board evolved node B (eNB) capable of using a standard not originally conceived for satellite communications with…

5G4Space

Objectives In the past three years, 5G was born. The principal arena where this effort has been worldwide coordinated is the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) that has recently standardized its release 15 containing the first phase of 5G, dubbed as New Radio (NR) by 3GPP. The first phase addressed mainly the so called eMBB…

VIBES

Objectives The high-level project objective was to provide a tailored architectural and technological solution for performance optimization of end-to-end IP-based services, when a satellite component is present in the communication path. Target scenarios are compliant to upcoming 5G use-cases. VIBeS project outcomes allow to review the role of Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP) agents, redesigned as…
