Path to 5G Smart Cities: Experiences from Media and Public Safety Pilots in 5GCity

Gino Carrozzo; Muhammad Shuaib Siddiqui

5GCity is an H2020 project within 5G PPP phase 2 which is working on deploying and testing the benefits of 5G technologies in Smart Cities. In particular, 5GCity is developing an architecture for the 5G-ready Neutral Host in which network slicing, SDN/NFV technologies, multi-access edge computing (MEC), and optimized lightweight virtualization platforms (e.g. based on unikernels) are all integrated to manage and orchestrate a distributed 5G cloud and radio platform. 5GCity has built city-wide pilots in the cities of Barcelona (ES), Bristol (UK) and Lucca (IT) where a number of media and public safety use cases are being simultaneously validated. This paper briefly reports on the key characteristics of these use cases and the main KPIs under evaluation selected to validate Vertical applications of interest and the 5GCity platform management and orchestration features
