IPD 1: 5G Wireless Networks Prototyping: A Software Defined Radio (SDR)-based Approach

Abstract: In March 2016, 3GPP kicked off the first phase of the multi-phase 5G standardization process. This process aims to develop a standard that can support the diverse application requirements specified by ITU IMT-2020, specifically, the three pillar applications of enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive machine type communications (mMTC) and ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC). The standard also addresses diverse spectrum resources such as the existing < 6GHz cellular bands, newly available millimeter wave bands (20GHz – 100GHz) and unlicensed bands (5GHz, 60GHz). In addition to enhancements to LTE technologies, 5G New Radio (NR) will consider new access technologies with significantly different performance capabilities and trade-offs such as massive MIMO, directional PHY in millimeter wave bands, etc. and new waveforms such as non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA). The 5G NR solution creates a flexible, scalable PHY frame structure that is forward compatible towards future phases. This provides the necessary dynamism that the upper layers can leverage to meet the diverse user requirements efficiently. In addition to these, network architectural enhancements such as distributed RAN (DRAN), cloud RAN (CRAN), software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) will play a critical role in 5G networks.
This presents opportunities and challenges for 5G wireless network design. 5G NR provides several axes of flexibility to improve capacity, coverage and capabilities of the networks. At the same time, design and verification of algorithms and protocol stack enhancements that can take advantage of this dynamism can be complex. Due to the cross-layer impact of these enhancements, it is necessary to create system prototypes and testbeds that consist of multiple layers of the stack to verify the theoretical performance expectations and iterate on the algorithms.  In this presentation, we propose National Instruments’ (NI) software defined radio (SDR)-based platform as a solution to conduct experiments on multi-node heterogeneous wireless networks. Full wireless communications stack prototyping is usually challenging because it requires diverse experience across different computing platforms (e.g. FPGA boards, general-purpose processors, RF cards, etc.), time consuming system integration tasks and knowledge of diverse tools (software and hardware). The NI LabVIEW graphical system design software addresses these challenges by providing a common development platform for all the heterogeneous elements present in the NI SDR system with tight hardware/software integration and a good abstraction layer.
This presentation will contain two parts. In the first part, we will discuss key design directions in 5G wireless networks based on the 3GPP 5G NR standardization process. In the second part, we will describe the NI SDR-based platform for 5G wireless network prototyping and describe a few example systems.

6 Dec 2017, 14:00 - 15:30, at Room 3
Dr. Ian C. Wong, National Instruments, US

Abstract: The term 5G seems to refer to all kinds of different wireless technologies. But what actually is 5G? The 3GPP standards body has been meeting regularly to define this next-generation standard for a New Radio(NR). In this presentation the audience can learn what 3GPP organizational partners have already approved for 5G and what technologies they are considering. The standardization process in 3GPP proceeds in Releases which within the context of 5G have been split into Phases. The timeline, structure and deployment of these Phases will be explained. Specifically, Phase 1 of New Radio that is relevant to the current 5G Work Item and Phase 2 of New Radio that is relevant to the upcoming 5G Study Items will be elaborated in detail.  We will also cover the detailed structure of the New Radio Physical Layers. As is well known by now, beam based communication is one of the foundational additions in 5G New Radio. The presence of narrow beam based communication impacts protocol design in myriad aspects such as for initial access, synchronization, broadcast and control channel design etc. We will cover the salient decisions in these topics taken by 3GPP and provide the rationale behind the key decisions.  By the end of this presentation, the audience should be well informed and up to date on the latest developments in 5G cellular standards and have a firm understanding of the key technologies and protocols being developed at a rapid rate in the standards bodies.

IPD 6:  Drone Base Stations: Opportunities and Challenges Towards a Truly “Wireless” Wireless Network

7 Dec 2017, 11:00 -  12:30, at Room 3
Dr. Ming Ding, Data 61, CSIRO, Australia
Prof. Mahbub Hassan, University of New South Wales, Australia
Mr. Lorenzo Galati Giordano, Nokia Bell Labs, Ireland
Abstract:  With recent advancements in drone technology, researchers are now considering the possibility of deploying small cells base stations using drones or even plugged on dynamically flying drones. An obvious advantage of such drone base stations (DBSs) is that the operators can quickly provide cellular services in areas of urgent demand without having to pre-install any infrastructure. However, before walking down this path of DBSs and plunging into the detailed design of futuristic DBS networks, we need to acquire clear answers for the following questions:
-          The viability of the business model for DBSs, i.e., what special advantages can DBSs bring about, compared with the conventional terrestrial base stations (TBSs). And more importantly, in exchange for those advantages, what are the new costs, e.g., more energy consumption due to flying drones combating the gravity, etc.
-          The fundamentals on the performance of DBSs, i.e., how do the DBSs compare against the TBSs in terms of theoretical performance.
-          The physical limitations of practical DBSs and their performance impacts, i.e., how do the DBSs compare against the TBSs in practice. In particular, we also need to consider the current regulations, i.e., which are the constraints that need to be taken into account while operating DBSs.
-          The recent advances in DBS prototyping, i.e., what is the level of technology readiness.
In the proposed presentation, we will explore the above questions from perspectives of market survey reports, literature review, drone simulator/hardware experiments, computer simulations of wireless communication networks based on DBSs, and prototype DBS equipment developed by Nokia Bell Labs.
 Historically, drones had been used mainly in military for reconnaissance purposes, but with recent developments in light-weight battery-powered drones, many civilian applications are emerging. Use of drones to deploy small cells in areas of urgent needs is one of the emerging applications currently being studied by many researchers. The greatest advantage of this approach is that DBSs can be sent immediately to a specific target location to establish emergency communication links without having to deploy any infrastructure.
However, it is still not clear whether DBSs can go beyond being just a solution for emergency communications. Is it a far-fetched thought to deploy DBSs in 5G or 6G networks? Note that as mentioned before, the DBSs addressed in this presentation is different from the high-altitude (~20km) aerial platforms investigated by Google/Facebook and the medium-altitude (~200m) aerial platforms developed by European Union FP7 ABSOLUTE Project.  To sum up, the proposed presentation is important and timely because:
-          It answers an intriguing question why we should consider adopting DBSs in cellular networks.
-          It provides a very large picture of DBSs, covering business model, technology taxonomy, experiment and simulation, and prototyping.
-          It shows another possibility of network deployment for 5G, which is estimated to roll out in 2020.

IPD 7: Modular virtualization framework for management and support of PNFs and VNFs in the context of vRAN 5G Small Cell Protocols

7 Dec 2017, 14:00 - 15:30, at Room 3

Mr. Mateusz Jemielity, IS-Wireless, Poland
Dr. Slawomir Pietrzyk, IS-Wireless, Poland
Abstract:  In this presentation and demo we will share our industrial experience on design and implementation of the virtualization framework - the key element of complete vRAN 5G Small Cell network stack. Unlike the actual 3GPP functionalities, the framework is not specified and is left for proprietary implementation. Nevertheless the services it provides are needed by many architectures. For embedded environments the framework provides a set of useful, basic services - allowing the developers to focus on actual specification. For cloud environments, the framework extends what is available through MANOs. It complements and further details basic features available either through NFV-compliant MANO or other popular projects, like Juju. Our solution offers plug and play services that significantly shorten stack development time.
We will demonstrate results of virtualization framework development providing a set of useful services for client NFs (network functions). The framework modules are designed to be deployed both as PNFs (physical NFs) and VNFs (virtual NFs). VNFCs (VNF components) comprising the modules are implemented in standard C99 as a set of binaries and libraries, making them suitable for both embedded environments and the cloud. The default implementation makes use of standard POSIX features, but its high granularity and abstraction allows easy ports to any required platforms. Each VNFC is independent and relies on message passing for communication, by default realized over network sockets. This makes it easy to deploy in a distributed manner and easy to customize for the end user. The message passing implementation and API uses open, industry-standard protocols.
Mateusz Jemielity is a senior software engineer focusing on architecture and development of the protocol stack. He joined the company in 2015. His previous experience was in Samsung Poland R&D Center (2009-2015). He holds M.Sc. in Informatics from University of Gdansk and was awarded “best student” in 2008/2009. Mateusz is a developer skilled in C/C++, Java and Python.

He holds a Ph.D. degree from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and postgraduate diploma in management from the Warsaw School of Economics. Prior to IS-Wireless, Slawomir worked for T-Mobile and Ubiquitous Communication Program at the Delft University of Technology.

Abstract:  The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) project spearheaded by Intel is a collection of software libraries, designed to help improve the packet processing efficiency across a wide range of wired and wireless platforms built using Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware. Libeventdev is a new DPDK library aimed at network application developers, that need to use an event-based programming model in concert with the existing high-performance packet processing framework of DPDK to develop networking applications capable of handling large volumes of packet flows. This tutorial will walk the attendees through the process of creating functional applications using the DPDK eventdev library.
The next generation of wireless deployment referred to as 5G demands capacity, latency, and power numbers that are an order of magnitude more stringent compared to 4G. Here are the minimum requirements for 5G deployment that are currently being finalized.
The first part of the tutorial will contain three subsections and will take about one hour.
-          It will first introduce attendees to the concept of an event scheduler and highlight its benefits to applications in the wired and wireless networking domain.
-          Next, the presenters will provide an overview of the libeventdev-based EM application and DPDK.
-          Then the presenters will walk the attendees through the libeventdev API, tying it back to the event scheduler concepts introduced previously.
The second part of the tutorial will be hands-on and will take about two hours.
-          Attendees will be guided through all stages of development of a runnable eventdev application, using the software eventdev PMD.
-          Then, attendees will learn how to configure an event scheduler and its queues and ports, how to enqueue and dequeue events to the scheduler, and tips for writing high-performance event-based applications.
-          System requirements, as well as virtual machine and container images containing the necessary development environment, will be made available in advance
