5G NORMA aims to develop a novel mobile network architecture that provides the necessary adaptability in a resource efficient way able to handle fluctuations in traffic demand resulting from heterogeneous and dynamically changing service portfolios and to changing local context.  The developed «multi-service and context-aware adaptation of network functions» will allow for a resource-efficient support of these varying scenarios and help to increase energy-efficiency by always selecting the most energy efficient option. The «mobile network multi-tenancy» approach to be developed by 5G NORMA will leverage the adaptability  and efficiency of network functions and enable an inherent and dynamic sharing and distribution of  network resources between operators. This will allow operators to increase their revenue through the new services, while leveraging the efficiency of the architecture to do so in a cost-effective way. 5G NORMA will apply concepts from software-defined networking (SDN) and network virtualization (NFV), and, in the long-term, will result in enhanced and flexible 5G base stations, software-based centralized controllers and software-based RAN elements.

5TONIC Involvement

Some of the experiments on orchestration and network virtualization of the 5G NORMA project have been performed in the 5TONIC testbed, in order to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme in realistic scenarios.
