The EU project 5G-SMART, led by Ericsson, is organizing a webinar on “Demystifying 5G and Industrial Networks slicing, from theory to practice ” with Jose Costa-Requena (Cumucore) as presenter on 18th November, 2021 at 3 pm CEST with 60 minutes duration.

Registration to the event is required.

Abstract: Industrial networks in smart manufacturing is one of the areas where 5G will play a major role and specifically network slicing is a tool to comply with reliability and security requirements. Network slicing has been proposed for sharing public mobile networks, however industrial non-public networks (NPN) are more demanding in terms of security and low latency communication which makes 5G network slicing a tool to support those demands. The webinar will showcase recent development done in the 5G-SMART and NG-IoT projects targeting industrial robotic and IoT networks. The  trial setup located inside a laboratory at the Aalto University campus consists of commercial indoor 5G network operating at 3.5GHz licensed frequency granted by government Traficom for trial of private networks. The setup consists of an end to end system including 5G routers and Cumucore 5G SA core that resembles a real deployment of a smart factory . The webinar will show practical configuration of network slices as well as the implementation aspects and benefits of 5G network slicing.

Other panellists in the webinar are Jose Costa and Dhruvin Patel.

  • Dr. Jose Costa-Requena is Cumucore CEO and Staff Scientist at Aalto University. He worked at Nokia as Technology manager leading multi-site programs with 1000+ team, part of patent board and several years top inventor. Contributor to several standardization forums including 3GPP, IETF, DLNA, UPnP where he was chair and co-author of multiple technical specifications. He coordinated multiple EU projects starting from FP5
  • Dhruvin Patel is senior researcher at Ericsson where his current research is focused on end-to-end aspects of 5G for factory automation. He is currently a member of 5G-SMART project management committee. He joined Ericsson in 2016 and holds an M.Sc. in Computer and System Engineering from Technical University Ilmenau, Germany.
