Main Focus

RELIANCE extends the 5G network architecture with new functionalities needed for multi-service and multi-domain management, with the related abstractions, interfaces, and mechanisms to support needed resilience, security, and scalability.

In particular, RELIANCE aims to conduct research activities on the concept of federated network slicing to compose end-to-end services that span across different technical and administrative domains.

RELIANCE slice choreography over multiple technical and administrative domains

The architectural work of the project is driven by the diverse needs and requirements stemming from vertical industries (e.g., automotive, industry 4.0, enhanced multimedia broadband, train control & management, and public protection & disaster relief).
