IEEE 5G Summit 25 March, 2019

RECO, SLV and free5GC – a path toward softwarization and virtualization of 5G core networks

It is envisioned in the future that not only smartphones will connect to cellular networks, but also all kinds of different wearable devices, sensors, vehicles, home appliances, VR headsets, and robots. Because the characteristics of these devices differ largely, people argue that future 5G systems should be designed to elastically accommodate different user types. The evolution of core networks will be driven by integrating heterogeneous networking technologies with the ultimate goal of migrating toward a new form of softwarized and programmable network. Network function virtualization will provide flexibility, short time to market, and low-cost solution to build network services, which are important features of 5G networks. In this talk, I’ll first present the evolution of cellular systems from 1st generation (1G) to 4th generation (4G), with a focus on core networks. I’ll then discuss the softwarization and virtualization of 5G core networks. Finally, I’ll present the open-source projects we have been developing for 5G core networks, including Reconfigurable Core (RECO), Service Level Virtualization (SLV), and free5GC.
