Journal 5G Experimentation for Public Safety: Technologies, Facilities and Use Cases Mojca VOLK, Janez STERLE IEEE Access 10.1109/ ACCESS.2021.3064405 Link This paper studies 5G PPDR experimentation associated with novel virtualized and cloud-native 5G technologies, architectures and deployment options, as well as feasibility studies and field performance and verifications trials involving vertical-specific 5G infrastructures and applications. Key enabling technologies, such as massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO), device-to-device (D2D), network slicing and multi-access edge computing (MEC) are discussed and 5G PPDR architecture and deployment options are investigated. A dedicated 5G PPDR experimentation facility is presented, and a case study of hands-on experimentation is provided. Pilot implementation deploying 5G IOPS as part of the 5GASP project is mentioned with key technology insights (using novel cloud-native techniques to achieve distributed application deployment and required services resilience exploiting OpenStack, Kubernetes, OSM and ONAP concepts).
Conference Automated onboarding, testing and validation for NetApps and Verticals Andreea Bonea et. al International Symposium on Signals, Circuits and Systems - ISSCS Iasi, 2021 TBD Link Joint paper between project participants Orange Romania and Neobility. Paper written as a result of the work performed on the european research projects projects 5GASP, Vital 5G and ICT-41. The paper aims to describe the 5G architecture and the testbeds for NetApps. A proposal for a Vehicle Route Optimizer NetApp, from the field of automotive, is presented. This can be tested and deployed following an iterative testing methodology and we introduce a paradigm focused on a fully automated toolchain that caters to the production of any NetApps with very little human interaction through open source software automation tools. In the context of the 5G-PPP project 5GASP we review the testing, integration and deployment of NetApps for improved ease of access and distribution.
Conference An automated CI/CD process for testing and deployment of Network Applications over 5G infrastructure Kostis Trantzas, Christos Tranoris, Spyros Denazis, Rafael Direito, Diogo Gomes, Jorge Gallego-Madrid, Ana Hermosilla, Antonio F. Skarmeta 2021 IEEE International Mediterranean Conference on Communications and Networking (MeditCom) TBD Link As 5G standards have largely matured, further enabling the radical development of 5G networks, the pressure for mobile operators to keep up with widening range of industry and contemporary use cases increases. Consequently, many approaches are emerged from the perspective of the vertical's interaction with the 5G system especially while onboarding specific vertical Network Applications (or NetApps). This work discusses an approach which reduces the complexity of this interaction by introducing a novel yet standard based vertical onboarding model. Our approach focuses on preserving interoperability and reproducibility with other systems through the exclusive utilization of data models derived by embracing well-known industry standards. Being also pragmatic, the mechanisms presented in this paper are implemented and applied in a large distributed 5G infrastructure.
Journal Links between 5G PPP projects: the road from the past to the future Roman Odarchenko, Giorgi Labadze Scientific and Practical Cyber Security Journal (SPCSJ) 5(2): 45-50 TBD Link To ensure the European leadership in the direction of the development and deployment of 5G networks 5G PPP in close collaboration with EC supports different related activities. There were already launched the 5G PPP project of three phases. It was shown that they are closely linked. This aims to present and analyze the links between 5G-Xcast, 5GTOURS, and 5GASP projects, the continuity of the conducted research activities, and new directions of future research.
Conference Security and Trust in the Integration of Network Functions within the 5G Architecture: The 5GASP Project Jorge Gallego-Madrid, Ramon Sanchez-Iborra, Antonio F. Skarmeta MobiSec 2021. The 5th International Symposium on Mobile Internet Security TBD Link European H2020-funded project 5GASP is developing an unified methodology to define the design, development, and onboarding of Network Applications (NetApps) within the scope of different vertical services. The principal aim of this work is to present such methodology as well as the main objectives of the project. The presented workflow allows a meticulous evaluation and certification of novel NetApps prior to their deployment in functional 5G systems.

This aims to present and analyze the links between 5G-Xcast, 5GTOURS, and 5GASP projects, the continuity of the conducted research activities, and new directions of future research. There were showcased which technologies and solutions from the past projects were reused for other projects and probably will be reused for further studies.
