Project Abstract

5G-PICTURE will design and develop a next generation converged infrastructure integrating a variety of advanced wireless access network technologies through novel wireless, optical and packet network solutions. This infrastructure will interconnect a large number of “disaggregated” compute/storage and network elements and deploy the concepts of hardware programmability and network softwarisation to facilitate the Dis-Aggregated RAN approach. This will enable the provisioning of any service across the infrastructure by flexibly and efficiently mixing-and-matching network, compute and storage resources.
