This deliverable reports on the set of identified use cases and the initial requirements coming from vertical industries that are considered relevant for the project. It also analyses key project performance indicators and how they relate to the ones identified by 5G-PPP. The scope of this deliverable, which is the first document of WP1, is to describe the following Vertical industries:
The peculiarities and the main characteristics of each use case, from different verticals, are highlighted and analysed.
The main outcome of this deliverable consists in detecting/extracting/collecting a set of requirements from the use-cases defined by the internal vertical-industries participating in the 5G-EVE project. For each use case two types of requirements are used, general requirements and more specific requirements.
Each of the participating partner presents a detailed description of all Verticals Use Cases. Also, definitions of all requirements are given (both general and specific) and an introduction to the methodology of information gathering and analysis is described. The analysis compares the capabilities of existing 4G/LTE networks as well as those promised by 5G network technologies with the requirements for proper operation for each of the Use Cases above and each sub-Use Case (also referred to and as scenario). The analysis is also presented in graphical forma with extensive use of radar charts. Moreover, the results of the requirements definition for each Use Case and Sub-Use Case (12 in total) is listed. The tables with the requirement values are given and in some cases, explanation is also provided.
The most universally demanded requirement from the verticals is the increased Reliability and Availability of the Networks and Services offered to end-customers. There is a tendency to migrate and/or develop all new services to the upcoming 5G networks even if the requirements do not need the enhanced capabilities of 5G. Finally, after Reliability and Availability, the most important parameters are Latency and Capacity of the Network.
The requirements given per UC in this deliverable, can be used as an input for the subsequent work-packages of 5G EVE.
