5G automation solutions for industry verticals

  • The fifth-generation (5G) of wireless networks promises to bring new advances, such as a huge increase in mobile data rates, a plunge in communications latency, and an increase in the quality of experience perceived by users that can cope with the ever-increasing demand in Internet traffic. However, the high cost of capital and operational expenditure (CAPEX/OPEX) of the new 5G network and the lack of a killer application hinder its rapid adoption. In this context, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) have turned their attention to the following idea: opening up their infrastructure so that vertical businesses can leverage the new 5G network to improve their primary businesses and develop new ones. However, deploying multiple isolated vertical applications on top of the same infrastructure poses unique challenges that must be addressed. In this thesis, we provide critical contributions to developing 5G networks to accommodate different vertical applications in an isolated, flexible, and automated manner. This thesis contributions spawn on three main areas: (i) the development of an integrated fronthaul and backhaul network, (ii) the development of a network slicing overbooking algorithm, and (iii) the development of a method to mitigate the noisy neighbors' problem in a vRAN deployment.
