The 6G Research and Innovation Cluster (6G-RIC) is a research hub designed to provide scientific and technical foundations for the next generation of mobile communications (6G) across all technology levels, including radio access, core- and fiber optic transport networks.
Through cutting-edge research and international networking, 6G-RIC aims to help establish Germany and Europe as a global leading drivers of sustainable 6G technologies.
The focus of 6G-RIC is on researching and developing a secure, flexible and open communications infrastructure as the basis for successful digitization in business and all areas of society.
The project aims to build an ecosystem for Open 5G-campus networks with open radio technologies and interoperable components.
The flagship project CampusOS was launched beginning 2022. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) with 18.1 million euros over the next three years. CampusOS is coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institutes HHI and FOKUS, located in Berlin, Germany.
The aim of the “Open6GHub” is to contribute to a global 6G harmonization process and standard in the European context that takes German interests into account in terms of our societal priorities (sustainability, climate protection, data protection, resilience, …) while strengthening the competitiveness of our companies and our technological sovereignty as well as the position of Germany and Europe in the international competition for 6G.
EdgeSAT was a research project funded by the European Funding Agency (ESA) within the ARTES Advanced Technology workplan that was addressing edge network computing from the satellite perspective. Edge network computing is a widely adopted concept among the terrestrial communication actors. From the perspective of EdgeSAT the challenge was the global alignment of edge computing capabilities for satellite remote terminals in a global uniform network currently being developed in 5G.
SATis5 is a research project funded by the European Funding Agency (ESA) within the ARTES Advanced Technology workplan that focuses on satellite terrestrial integration into the 5G context. In this context, different edge-central split slicing models enable local and private data paths, end-to-end data paths as well as different trust levels within the control plane.
DAWN is a research project funded by the European Funding Agency (ESA) within the ARTES Advanced Technology workplan that focuses on the developement of a data-driven network controller and orchestrator for real-time network management. In this context, a special attention is set on the seamless integration of dynamic resource management in 5G mobile with satellite communication.
Expanse is a research project funded by the European Funding Agency (ESA) within the ARTES Advanced Technology workplan that studies and demonstrates the opportunities brought by leveraging Big Data in future converged satellite-terrestrial 5G communication networks. As a result, a cloud-native, micro-services architecture for orchestrated, chained, edge-based data processing is being developed that offers APIs for third parties.
NEMI is being used for various AI driven use cases. We will extend this section over time with a selected list of released show cases that demonstrate the integration of NEMI in partner activities.
We want our system to be used as easly as possible so you can focus on the actual work. Please find below a short screencast of how to setup the base system.
As part of the EdgeSAT project we’ve demonstrated the management of and data exchange between 90 edge notes over satellite links.
