Objectives

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are emerging as major transformational technologies towards “software networks”, a new paradigm that is evolving the telecom sector with new network capabilities and business opportunities. 5GTANGO addresses the significant challenges associated with both the development and deployment of the complex services envisioned for 5G networks and empowered by these technologies. Core objectives include:

Reduce time to market for networked services by shortening service development cycle and by qualifying network services to be adopted.

To enable new business opportunities with the customisation and adaptation of the network to vertical application requirements.

Generate impact and standardization of project results. 

Reduce entry barrier to third party developers and support the creation and composition of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) and application elements as "network services".

Accelerate the NFV uptake in industry via 'extended' DevOps model and validation at scale of network service capabilities of 5GTANGO platform in vertical show cases.

Support the 5G PPP programme.
