This document presents the intermediate validation results for the use cases of the H2020 5GZORRO project. In addition, it describes the available infrastructure and the initial setup on the 5GZORRO testbeds (i.e., 5GBarcelona and 5TONIC).
The 5GZORRO platform is validated in terms of overall functionality and KPIs using three reference use cases:
1. Use Case 1 (UC1): Smart Contracts for Ubiquitous Computing/Connectivity, testing the DLT-based Smart Contracts and Oracles application in order to support a trusted Marketplace catalogue of 5G resource offers from many providers and stakeholders.
2. Use Case 2 (UC2): Dynamic spectrum allocation, which utilizes the Marketplace platform to trade licensed spectrum resources, configure the RAN elements of the relevant network slices accordingly, and monitor associated SLAs for breach verification.
3. Use Case 3 (UC3): Pervasive virtual Content Distribution Network (vCDN) Services, which covers the smart selection of resource offers from the Marketplace and the subsequent orchestrated provisioning and management of virtual CDN services, based on the developments of the first two use cases. Specifically, the goal is to evaluate the overall scalability of the vCDN service, in cases of different resource requirements, in order to maintain the required SLAs.
The document describes the details of the 5GBarcelona and 5TONIC testbeds that were used to validate the presented use case scenarios. These details refer to the actual components that are in use in the testbeds for 5GZORRO’s purposes as well as the setup and configurations made in order to support the ongoing tests. Moreover, this deliverable contains results of the first tests executed for the three use cases with the intermediate release of the 5GZORRO platform components.
