Strategic Goals

An SLA (service Level Agreement) that captures the particular Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of a delivery –i.e., scope, quality, and responsibilities– can play a significant role towards realizing business success.The critical point is that, even though there is already a good understanding and experience available on the radio access and/or cloud computing services KPIs, there is no clear vision on a “joint” radiocloud SLA, which covers both worlds –and related concepts- simultaneously.

Solutions Developed / Used

SESAME targets innovations around three central elements in 5G: the placement of network intelligence and applications in the network edge through Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) and Edge Cloud Computing; the substantial evolution of the Small Cell concept, already mainstream in 4G but expected to deliver its full potential in the challenging high dense 5G scenarios; and the consolidation of multi-tenancy in communications infrastructures, allowing several operators/service providers to engage in new sharing models of both access capacity and edge computing capabilities.
