Three papers supported by MATILDA have been presented at EUCNC and IEEE NetSoft conferences

MATILDA was recently represented at the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC 2020) with the paper "Validation of IaaS-based Technologies for 5G-Ready Applications Deployment" and at the IEEE Conference on Network Softwarization (IEEE NetSoft 2020) with two proceedings: "Debunking the “Green” NFV Myth: An Assessment of the Virtualization Sustainability in Radio Access Networks" and "Enabling Edge Computing Deployment in 4G and Beyond".
Since both conferences were held as virtual events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all presentations have been recorded and are now available on our YouTube channel.

MATILDA webinar

The MATILDA Workshop titled: MATILDA - Autonomic Development and Lifecycle Management of 5G & Beyond Services - was originally planned to be held in conjunction with the 6G Wireless Summit on March 20, 2020, in Levi, Finland. However, owing to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Summit was later transformed into a virtual event. As organizers of the Workshop on behalf of the MATILDA project, we decided to follow a similar path and asked our invited speakers to provide pre-recorded presentations that highlight different aspects of the MATILDA framework and have them uploaded to the workshop website.

The MATILDA project targets a coordinated, highly dynamic, and fully automated control of all the resources/services at any layer to enable verticals autonomically deploy and manage the lifecycle of their 5G-ready applications in a multi-tenant/domain ecosystem. This holistic approach will not only empower application developers by providing them with the appropriate tools for creating 5/6G-ready applications but also significantly contribute to bridging the gap between the verticals and the underlying cloud/edge networks.

We cordially invite interested participants to register for the webinar, where the topics explained in the presentations by the experts will be discussed no later than 20th of June using this link. The webinar will be held on the 30th of June at 5:00 pm CEST. Access to the webinar will be shared only with the registered participants.

Below is the list of our expert discussants:

Panagiotic Gouvas - Ubitech, Greece
Jaafar Elmirghani - University of Leeds, UK
Ingrid Moerman - Ghent University, Belgium
Antonio Manzalini - Telecom Italia Mobile, Italy
Luka Korsic - Internet Institute LTD, Slovenia
Slawomir Kuklinski - Orange, Poland
Kay Burow - BIBA, Germany
Rui Aguiar - University of Aveiro, Portugal
Artur Hecker - Huawei Technologies, Germany
Miloud Bagaa - Aalto University, Finland.

Thank you for your anticipated participation!

MATILDA demo: Smart City Lighting use case

Successful demonstration of the MATILDA Smart City Lighting use case in Bucharest at the Orange Romania’s premises, supported by the MATILDA framework in terms of Vertical Application Orchestrator (VAO) and OSS (dynamically instantiated in Athens and Genoa, respectively). Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the demo was presented remotely, on 19 March 2020, to one of the reviewers in Madrid and to the Project Officer in Brussels, and worked in a fully distributed setting.

MATILDA and SLICENET clustering workshop

MATILDA, in collaboration with the SLICENET project, organized a project clustering workshop, held in Bucharest, Romania, on 11-13 November 2019

Amongst other things, MATILDA and SLICENET consortium members had very fruitful discussions on the positioning of both projects and their respective outcomes. In particular, the focus of the clustering workshop was on the practicalities of the application of the results generated from both projects and their alignment with respect to their set objectives. More specifically, the coordination teams of both projects identified areas of interests in some of the implementation results realized within their respective frameworks. At the end of the clustering event, partners from both consortia came together to take a group picture, which is shown below.
