    WP4: Reference architecture, vertical requirements and description of KPI collection framework

    IDName of the innovationShort description of the innovation
    4.1Intent-based experimentation (work by WINGS, UC3M)The 5G-EVE Intent Based Networking mechanism is processing natural language input from the user and translates it into service requirements for their experiment. The innovation lies in the translation engine where specific vertical terminology is translated into types of service (slices) and in the first implementation of an itterative interogation technique for soliciting additional information from the user. The mechanim results in a Service Descriptor, which is later used for setting-up and configuring the user's experiment over the 5G-EVE platform.

    WP5: Advanced KPI framework

    IDName of the innovationShort description of the innovation
    5.1WP5: KPI collection frameworkThe 5G EVE KPI Collection framework is a powerful framework for collecting several 5G related metrics, both on 5G network and application layers. The two main building blocks of the framework are the Data Collection Manager and the Data Shippers. The Data Collection Manager is based on Apache Kafka, which is a well-known publish-subscribe tool that acts as a bus, being able to manage and send data to different applications connected to it. The Data Shippers are the information collection agents responsible for gathering metrics and logs and shipping them to the Data Collection Manager. In order for the implementation of these agents to be robust and modular, the tool adopted for this task are the Beats by Elastic.

    5.2 WP5: KPI testing/validation framework

    IDName of the innovationShort description of the innovation
    5.2WP5: KPI testing/validation frameworkAs 5G technology is evolving, consolidation and moving to deployment stage, more and more verticals are exploring how to best leverage the potential of 5G for their business, conceiving and developing new applications. In order to validate the functionality and performance of those applications before launching them in the market, extensive and reliable tests are required (which normally implies a great deal of investments, effort and time). 5G EVE builds and offers a validation framework for easily integrating, executing, testing, validating and monitoring 5G-enabled vertical applications developed by European industry leaders. It powers an agile process that allows vertical “citizen” users to easily define how their application can be deployed in a real 5G environment, over a number of potential configuration plans and validated against a broad set of situations and conditions (realistic scenarios). With that added-value service the vertical can easily validate, improve and fine-tune their service and pinpoint the key requirements that their new 5G-based services under test pose on the target environments for launching them commercially. The impact of this framework is therefore a dramatic reduction of testing investment and vertical’s innovation lead time.

    5.3 WP5: Performance Diagnosis framework

    IDName of the innovationShort description of the innovation
    5.3WP5: Performance Diagnosis frameworkVerticals applications need to accomplish (often stringent) KPI levels, over complex 5G infrastructures, which encompass radio, access/edge, transport/core, cloud, etc. segments. Tools are needed for verifying the degree of KPI compliance, as well as for diagnosing the reasons at the level of the segment, and also for suggesting respective improvements. Such tools are part of the innovation, which will be oriented, primarily, to verticals and, potentially, to operators also. 5G EVE is developing a Performance diagnosis frameworking supporting Anomaly Detection, Root Cause Analysis and Performance Optimization in 5G infrastructures.
