5GZORRO will develop these envisaged solutions for zero-touch service, network and security management in multi-stakeholder environments (ubiquitous), making use of Smart contracts based on Distributed Ledgers Technologies to implement required business agility.
5GZORRO consortium envisions the evolution of 5G to achieve truly production-level support of diverse vertical applications, which coexist on a highly pervasive shared network infrastructure, through automated end-to-end network slicing, across multiple operators and infrastructure/resource providers, who can share heterogeneous types of resources (spectrum, virtualized radio access, virtualized edge/core).
5GZORRO uses distributed Artificial Intelligence (AI) to implement cognitive network orchestration and management with minimal manual intervention (Zero-Touch Automation).
Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) are adopted to implement flexible and efficient distributed security and trust across the various parties involved a 5G end-to-end service chain.
Cross-domain Secure And Trusted Zero-touch Service And Network Management solution (it includes intelligent and automated resource discovery, brokerage, selection and operation mechanisms to facilitate workload offloading to 3rd-party resources)
• 5G Operational Data-Lake with APIs for multi-party 5G services.
• Smart Contract solution for SLA management based on DLTs to improve business agility in 5G scenarios.
• Cross-domain Security & Trust for end-to-end distributed security and trust parameters, policies and ML-models
• Secure Shared Spectrum Market for real-time trading on spectrum allocations
