5G Exchange (5GEx) enables business and technical cross-domain orchestration of services over multiple administrations. Such orchestration allows instantiating end-to-end networks & services into multi-vendor heterogeneous technology resource environments. The goal of 5GEx is the automated assignment and mapping of virtualised service elements, creating opportunities for operators to buy, sell, and integrate infrastructure services in an automated and cost-effective manner.


5GEx focuses on a number of use cases for demonstrating the set of functionalities required for multi-domain and multi-technology perspectives, reflecting future realistic scenarios enabled by 5GEx. The use cases are categorised according to the target service scope: the Connectivity, the NFV Infrastructure as a Service, the Virtualised Network Function as a Service, and the Slice as a Service (composition of the previous ones) cases.

5TONIC Involvement

The project is using 5TONIC to host one of the testbed (islands) connected to the 5GEx sandbox, where different integration and evaluation efforts take place. Besides, 5TONIC hosted the second technical review of the project, which took place in May 2017.
