D2.4: Final report on facility design and experimentation planning

5Genesis
2020 Zenodo  
The purpose of this deliverable is to present in one concise document the final 5GENESIS architecture and experimentation methodology. As such, it presents the work undertaken as part of WP2 "Facility Requirements and Specifications", Tasks T2.1, T2.2 and T2.3. The content of this deliverable represents our final view on requirements, architecture and experimentation methodology, and therefore supersedes any architecture specification and experimentation methodology content presented in our

The work performed in WP2 and included in this deliverable forms the basis for the implementations of the common architectural components in WP3, and for the deployments, testing and KPI validation work done in WPs 4, 5, and 6, while the inputs towards 5G-PPP groups are taken further by WP7. Through a continuous feedback loop between WP2 and the implementation, deployment and testing work packages (WP3, WP4, WP5 and WP6), our view on the architecture and methodology was enhanced. This process included: • enhancing the work done on requirements, • adding new components such as the Slice Optimisation Module, • specifying the east/west interface through detailing multi-platform experiment workflows, • update the 5GENESIS reference architecture, • refine the 5GENESIS experimentation methodology. The key target of the 5GENESIS Experimentation Platform is to support 5G experimentation and our architecture design was conducted from this perspective. While the design accommodates for a diverse set of capabilities in each of the underlying platforms of 5GENESIS, including technological advancements in spectrum management and multi-domain end-to-end orchestration, as well as interactions between different administration and experimentation domains, it is also based on one common slicing and experimentation model, allowing for an easy interface and experimentation procedure for all experimenters. Our developed experimentation methodology is now incorporated into the 5G-PPP [...]
