5G-MoNArch Use Case for ETSI ENI: Elastic Resource Management and Orchestration

5G networks will grant spectacular improvements of the most relevant Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) while allowing resource multi-tenancy through network slicing. However, the other side of the coin is represented by the huge increase of the …

Bidirectional highway traffic for network simulation

Reliable and reproducible research in vehicular networking demands, among other requisites, a suitable representation of road traffic. We leverage real-world fine-grained measurement data recorded on the M40 highway in Madrid, Spain, to feed a …

Optimising 5G infrastructure markets: The business of network slicing

In addition to providing substantial performance enhancements, future 5G networks will also change the mobile network ecosystem. Building on the network slicing concept, 5G allows to ``slice'' the network infrastructure into separate logical networks …

Flexible connectivity and QoE/QoS management for 5G Networks: The 5G NORMA view

The goal envisioned by 5G NORMA is to develop a novel, adaptive and future-proof 5G mobile network architecture. In order to fulfill these requirements, 5G NORMA envisions an extremely flexible architecture to be deployed in a multi-tier distributed …

The Bologna Ringway Dataset: Improving Road Network Conversion in SUMO and Validating Urban Mobility via Navigation Services

The current lack of reference datasets of road traffic mobility for network simulation jeopardizes the reliability and reproducibility of vehicular networking research. We contribute to the ongoing effort to develop dependable and publicly available …

Measurement-Based Modeling of Interarrivals for the Simulation of Highway Vehicular Networks

Simulation is the standard approach to the performance evaluation of vehicular network solutions. However, the relevance of its results is often questioned by the adoption of unrealistic vehicular mobility representations. In this letter, we propose …

Vehicular networks on two Madrid highways

There is a growing need for vehicular mobility datasets that can be employed in the simulative evaluation of protocols and architectures designed for upcoming vehicular networks. Such datasets should be realistic, publicly available, and …

Optimized IPv6 Internet access from vehicles in multi-hop and heterogeneous environments

In order to provide efficient Internet connectivity from vehicles, three fundamental functionalities are needed: IP address autoconfiguration, enhanced routing and mobility support. This extended abstract provides a brief view of the work done so far …
