& Use Cases
Open Source Collaborators
Our first PoC is around cloud native 5G. The Aarna Networks Multi Cluster Orchestration Platform (AMCOP) orchestrates a 5GC + Next Gen Firewall (NGFW) onto a Red Hat OpenShift cluster. We will add 5GRAN to the PoC as well as network slicing. See more information here.
Our second PoC is a Private LTE/5G over CBRS with edge computing demo in the LF Edge Akraino community. Initially we are focusing on orchestration of Free5GC with Aarna Networks Multi Cluster Orchestration Platform (AMCOP) product followed by onboarding of TIP Open Core Network and OAI 5G RAN.
5G + Edge B2B computing Use Cases
5G and edge computing will cut costs and increase productivity for next generation factories, plants, mines, and more with wireless connectivity to replace Ethernet, AR applications, autonomous vehicles, IoT, and AI/ML applications at the edge.
Smart hospitals will use 5G and edge computing for reliable, low latency, and predictable connectivity, IoT, radiology AI/ML at the hospital, VR applications for pain management and other treatments, and enhanced security through video surveillance.
Given the food supply risks that have been exposed by COVID-19, precision agriculture is a key use case. Agriculture will use 5G for IoT connectivity, drone and robot control, autonomous tractors, AI/ML applications, and more.
These are not the only use cases for 5G and edge computing. Smart cities/buildings, V2X, retail, logistics, media and entertainment will all use these new technologies for improved connectivity, lower costs, and new streams of revenue.
