5G Network Deployment at UBT: Features, capabilities and challenges

Session

Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Description

In this work, we describe our experience in deploying a 5G network at UBT targeting different 5G use cases through the virtualization of the underlying infrastructure. This paper describes the features and capabilities of the 5G network followed by the description of the challenges we faced while building this network, which could require further study and will open up new research opportunities in this space.

The purpose of this deployed network is to allow students, researchers and academics to test and experiment with the features and capabilities of novel designs and solutions with very rigid technical requirements, i.e. very high bandwidth and very low latency by using network slicing and multi-access edge computing (MEC).. It helps to create a platform that would enable the customization and benchmarking of different prototypes for different use cases and scenarios.

Furthermore, this paper will highlight the intention to continue to use the network for more bandwidth-hungry applications, such as the integration of immersive technologies with 5G and the enhancement of the user experience through the immersive technologies.
