The 5G-EPICENTER objectives are:
Build an end-to-end 5G experimentation platform specifically tailored to the needs of the public safety and emergency response market players.
Pilot 5G systems in PPDR-based trials, successfully demonstrating 5G-EPICENTRE onboarded apps as a crucial communications accompaniment to public safety mission critical communications technologies.
Cultivate a ‘5G Experiments as a Service’ model, which will enable developers and SMEs to experiment with PPDR applications in parameterized, easily repeatable, and shareable environments.
Facilitate automation, continuous deployment and multi-access edge computing supported by containerized network functions, so as to reduce service creation time and time-to-market for 5G solutions.
Leverage Artificial Intelligence for achieving cognitive experiment coordination and lifecycle management, including dynamic 5G slicing, application awareness and insightful ML-driven analytics.
Implement impact-driven dissemination, standardisation and exploitation.
