This deliverable presents two of the main milestones of the project: on the one hand, we present the second version of the 5G EVE Portal, including all services planned at the beginning of the project and, on the other hand, the results and benchmarking of innovative data planes and radio access features.
With respect to the second version of the 5G EVE Portal, this deliverable includes an updated version of the REST API offered by the Portal backend to both the GUI elements developed by the project, and to other authorized projects by means of the public methods defined by the 5G EVE project. This second version of the Portal includes new services, based on the requirements imposed by other technical work packages. Thus, we have included some implementation details of these new services. Finally, we have also included a new update of the service handbook, presenting a complete 5G EVE Portal user guide, which for sure will be helpful for all actors using our portal.
Furthermore, the deliverable explores many research directions to exploit innovative data plane techniques: (i) the use of P4 abstraction model to share non-local states between the VNFs, (ii) the comparison of different approaches to support VNF, (iii) the use of two novel networking technologies, namely Flexible Ethernet and of Preferred Path Routing, (iv) a fully cloud-native implementation of OpenAirInterface RAN and Core, (v) the implementation of an efficient and accurate solution for loss monitoring in SRv6 (Segment Routing over IPv6).
