METIS is developing a 5G system concept that meets the requirements of the beyond-2020 connected information society and supports new usage scenarios. To meet the objectives METIS uses Horizontal Topics (HT) that addresses a key new challenge, identifies necessary new functionalities and proposes HT-specific concepts. This paper presents an initial view of the HT-specific concepts for each of the METIS HTs: Direct Device-to-Device Communication, Massive Machine Communication, Moving Networks, Ultra-Dense Networks, and Ultra-Reliable Communication. It also describes how the HTspecific concepts will be integrated into one overall METIS 5G concept. Keywords--5G; Direct Device-to-Device Communication (D2D); Massive Machine Communication (MMC); Moving Networks (MN); Ultra-Dense Networks (UDN); and Ultra-Reliable Communication (URC); System concept; METIS

  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
