Faster Software Packet Processing on FPGA NICs with eBPF Program Warping

FPGA NICs can improve packet processing performance, however, programming them is difficult, and existing solutions to enable software packet processing on FPGA either provide limited packet processing speed, or require changes to programs and to their development/deployment life cycle. We address the issue with program warping, a new technique that improves...

Evaluation of AI-based Smart-Sensor Deployment at the Extreme Edge of a Software-Defined Network

The introduction of AI-based smart-sensors on the network might suppose stringent requirements for the network edge, including the necessity to process real-time video feeds. Moreover, the introduction of vehicular communications allows the multiple location placement of necessary computational processes. To this end, we have proposed an AI-based smart- sensor solution...

Demo: Interoperability between Cellular and V2X Networks (802.11p / LTE-PC5) under a Cloud Native Edge Scenario

By leveraging the use of wireless communication technologies and edge computing capabilities, Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) aims to improve safety and traffic management in mobility use cases. However, the deployment of C-ITS poses some critical challenges. Specifically, in heterogeneous systems, it is necessary to guarantee interoperability among the various...

5GMED Architecture for Automotive and Railway Communication Services in Cross-Border Scenarios

Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) and Future Railway Mobile Communications System (FRMCS) use cases present strict requirements in terms of service end-to-end latencies, data-rates, reliability and service availability, posing challenges in the design of 5G network architectures for cross-border scenarios, where current roaming mechanisms introduce large latencies and service...

5GMED Connected and Automated Mobility and Future Railway Mobile Communication Use Cases in the Mediterranean Cross-Border Corridor

The 5GMED project will demonstrate advanced Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) and Future Railway Mobile Communications System (FRMCS) use cases along the cross-border corridor between Figueres (Spain) and Perpignan (France), enabled by a multi-stakeholder compute and network infrastructure based on 5G and offering support for AI functions, and deployed...

10th Newsletter – April 2023: Connectivity beyond limits in mobility cross-border scenarios with 5G

SUBSCRIBE TO THE 5GMED NEWSLETTER HERE! Last week, 5GMED released the demo days video showcasing the different use cases of the project but, most importantly, getting team members to explain and describe the latest progress. Snow in Barcelona! You would probably think it is nonsense. Actually, it happened, and it was just the day the 5GMED team...

5GMED proves connectivity beyond limits in mobility cross-border scenarios with 5G

In February 2023, small scale pilots’ demonstrations of the 5GMED project were held in the Circuit of Castellolí (Spain) and the LFP facilities (Spain-France) to showcase the project’s progress to the European Commission delegation. The impact of 5G extends far beyond our smartphones: it has already arrived to mobility to disrupt...

9th Newsletter – March 2023: Safe, efficient, digital, connected and sustainable: that’s the future of mobility

SUBSCRIBE TO THE 5GMED NEWSLETTER HERE! 5GMED was on stage last month at the Mobile World Congress 2023 among mobility experts in a panel discussion on “Europe and Spain facing the challenge of connected mobility”. We know the event was hectic and busy, and you already forgot about it, so we delivered a recap article...
