This deliverable contains the description of the four European (France, Greece, Italia and Spain) sites facilities that compose the 5G end-to-end infrastructure of 5G EVE. Since the deployment of the four facilities is in progress at the time of delivery of this document, the information here provided is to be considered as the state of hardware and software assets in each site facility planned for the end of April 2019, when the initial access to the 5G EVE platforms will be granted to the verticals to be integrated. The site facilities evolution will follow the specifications of 3GPP – Release 16 and the roadmap of equipment manufacturers. The final state of the different sites facilities that will compose the E2E facility will be described in the D2.3 deliverable due at the end of the project (June 2021).
Each site facility is described individually, with an effort to identify the possible commonalities and inter-relations among site architectures which aims at easing the process of smooth interworking in the 5G EVE platform.
For each of the sites, we provide through this document a description of the reference high level architecture and a summary of the main vertical use-cases that is planned to integrate. A set of technical features is also provided, such as:

  • • the RAN architecture (RRH, BBU, Frequency bands, implemented technologies, etc.);
  • • the distributed cloud/MEC elements;
  • • the CORE architecture;
  • • the network management and orchestration functions;
  • • the tools and software used for the network deployment, supervision management and KPI testing and validation;
  • • the main interfaces between layers.

The individual description of each of the sites allows to analyse the possible convergence between the different approaches of network deployment and thus to give the common blocks that can build the interworking between sites and the management of the 5G EVE end-to-end facility.
In the conclusion, we present a summary table of the technologies used by each site for each part of the network framework.
