This document presents the results of the initial use cases description and requirements elicitation work conducted in the H2020 5GZORRO project. This R&D action has the overall objective to design, develop and validate in representative use cases a 5G architecture capable to incorporate zero-touch automation solutions for the orchestration of high volumes of ubiquitous and pervasive 5G services, with security and trust. For this, 5GZORRO will develop a zero-touch orchestration platform which

This document provides a detailed description of the 5GZORRO use cases. Each use case is contextualised through a review of the specific state of the art aimed at identifying the expected novelty that will be introduced in the 5GZORRO project. Multiple scenarios are covered for each use case, in order to illustrate the behaviour expected using the 5GZORRO platform and identify various ways for stakeholders to interact among themselves. Three Use Cases are proposed in 5GZORRO: Smart Contracts for Ubiquitous Computing/Connectivity: It covers mechanisms for the implementation of DLT-anchored Smart Contracts and Oracles with the objective of enabling decentralized trust for multi-party interactions and SLA management in trading of computing (and other) resources across edge and core parts of the network. Dynamic spectrum allocation: It envisions Blockchain enabled spectrum markets, where shared spectrum usage right holders can trade and lease spectrum rights for a given area and time, enhancing spectrum efficiency while maintaining the QoS at the required level. Pervasive virtual Content Distribution Network Services (vCDN): It covers the capacity for deliv [...]
