5G PERFECTA focuses on efficient information handling, where QoS och QoE for new 5G services are combined for the purposes of developing machine learning technologies for real-time systems and new control capabilities.
The problem. 5G imposes high requirements on infrastructure and control mechanisms capable of delivering mobile services with higher traffic volumes, greater user concentration, shorter response times, and greater ability to customize the network for a greater variety of services. Examples of services enabled by 5G technology include remote control of vehicles (e.g. in the mining industry) and individualized information through augmented reality. The complexity of 5G (in both infrastructure and future services) requires a high level of network autonomy at different temporal scales (from real-time to longer response times) based on effective machine learning and new combinations of data sources.
For some services that include sensory information, such as video, audio and haptic signals, we see the combination of Quality of Service (QoS) and User Experience Quality of Experience (QoE) as particularly important. Managing these issues is essential for achieving technical 5G requirements and next generation mobile services, which will be a central part of the future digitalized society and industry.
The scope. Celtic Plus 5G PERFECTA takes steps towards effective information processing with the objectives of:
5G-PERFECTA collaboration partners. This project is coordinated by INDRA (Spain) in collaboration with participants in Poland, Turkey, Portugal and Sweden. The Swedish consortium consists of Ericsson, RISE, Lund University, Time Critical Networks and Sandvine.
