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.
 

ARCHITECTURE

5GZORRO will produce an architecture for future 5G networks capable of automated,
flexible and multi-stakeholder combination and composition of resources and services,
in a secure and trusted manner

architecture

The 5GZORRO platform

Instantiated in each operator domain to share heterogeneous types of resources
(i.e. spectrum, virtualized radio access,
virtualized edge/core, software defined WAN, etc.)
across multiple operators and infrastructure / resource providers

A permissioned Distributed Ledger infrastructure to offer services for:

  • Smart Contracts Management,
  • Resource Discovery & Brokering;
  • Intelligent 3rd-party virtual resource selection;
  • Spectrum trading and sharing;
  • Secure SLA Monitoring

Sharing of operational data across the whole system in a logically centralized data reservoir (Operational Data Lake),to unleash truly end-to-end optimization of target network or application  KPIs

  • Full automation of network and service management (zero-touch) and slice orchestration via:
  • Network Intelligence and Analytics,
  • Security & Trust,
  • Management of Service & virtualized Resources

Platform design inspired to the principles of service-based-architectures with effective coexistence of Cloud-native vs more traditional IaaS network functions
