The overall objective of the 5G-HEART is to define and validate the cost efficient 5G converged network concepts, which enable an intelligent hub supported by multiple vertical industries.
Objectives 1-6 are specified as follows
To define and implement specific use cases of healthcare, transport and aquaculture industries enabling testing and validation of typical 5G network KPIs like latency, throughput, capacity, connection density, mobility and reliability.
To define and develop 5G enhancements required for demonstration of Proof of Concepts (PoC), trials of multiple vertical services, such as transport industry, healthcare industry, and aquaculture industry and demonstrate support for concurrency (simultaneous support of use cases from different vertical domains with diverse QoS requirements) in a scalable manner.
To describe and validate viable business models for the use cases tested across the multiple industry verticals.
To implement and validate converged network functions on 5G end-to-end (E2E) platforms using virtualization and slicing to support multiple 5G use cases targeting the eMBB, URLLC and mMTC scenarios.
To perform field trials and demonstrations of selected use cases involving multiple vertical services on the available 5G E2E platforms in order to assess how 5G can provide differentiated services across multiple verticals.
To ensure extensive exploitation of project results with thoroughly planned dissemination and communication activities targeted towards carefully selected standardisation bodies and industry associations.
