View on 5G Architecture and RINA, a US perspective

In a previous post, we discussed a view on 5G Architecture from the European 5G PPP Architecture Working Group, and now its worth considering recommendations for End-to-end 5G systems from the US perspective. The 5G Americas (formerly known as 4G Americas) whitepaper “5G Technology Evolution Recommendations” discusses a selected set of scenarios and technologies for 5G.

D4.3 Design of experimental scenarios, selection of KPIs and metrics

ARCFIRE’s D4.3 Design of experimental scenarios, selection of KPIs and metrics [pdf] is now available for download at the deliverables area. This deliverable details the preparatory work done in ARCFIRE WP4 before the actual experimentation can begin. It takes the converged network operator scenarios for a traditional network design and the RINA designs that were developed

RINA Tutorial presented at ETSI ISG NGP meeting

During the 3rd meeting of ETSI’s ISG NGP group, a RINA tutorial was presented by ARCFIRE representatives. The tutorial covered the basics of RINA (structure, DIF components, overview of data transfer and layer management), followed by a toy example of a RINA mobile network. The presentation triggered a lot of questions and a lively discussion
