5G!Drones 2nd GA Meeting in Cosmote premises

5G!Drones H2020 project objective is to trial several UAV and drone use-cases taking advantage of the eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC services/slices that experimental 5G facilities across Europe, such as 5GENESIS, 5G-EVE and others, are offering.

Towards this, 5G!Drones project has specified business-wise valid use cases in the Drones market and industry, which will showcase efficiently the added value and advances by using 5G technologies.

NCSR “Demokritos” delegation at 5G!Drones project contributes actively on the successful execution of drones experiment in 5GENESIS platform, reassuring the assessment of KPIs related both with the 5G platform itself and the drone/UAV itself.

The project will feature Network Slicing as the key component to simultaneously run the three types of UAV services on the same 5G infrastructure (including the RAN, back/fronthaul, Core), demonstrating that each UAV application runs independently and does not affect the performance of other UAV applications, while covering different 5G services.

5G!Drones is a 5G-PPP project.

5G!DRONES Kick-off Meeting at Thales in France

The 5G!Drones kick off meeting took place 10-12 June in Paris, France.

5G!Drones aim is to test and validate several UAV use-cases (https://5gdrones.eu/use-case-scenarios/) covering eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC 5G services, and to validate 5G KPIs for supporting such challenging use-cases. The project will drive the UAV verticals and 5G networks to a win-win position, on one hand by showing that 5G is able to guarantee UAV vertical KPIs, and on the other hand by demonstrating that 5G can support challenging use-cases that put pressure on network resources, such as low-latency and reliable communication, massive number of connections and high bandwidth requirements, simultaneously. 5G!Drones (https://5gdrones.eu/) will build on top of the 5G facilities provided by the ICT-17 projects and a number of support sites, while identifying and developing the missing components to trial UAV use-cases.

Participating in the annual review of H2020 SMESEC project

On 5 July 2018 I had the chance to participate in the annual review of H2020 SMESEC project at FORTH in Heraklion, Crete as independent expert of EU. SMESEC aims at providing a unified security framework for Small Medium Enterprises (SME). Since SME’s are one of the most important drivers for innovation, but they often tend not properly to plan their cybersecurity defence, either by underestimating the risks and consequences of cyber attacks or by not being capable of keeping pace with the progress in this ever-evolving field, the main goal of SMESEC is to identify what are the needs from the SME perspective and translate them into requirements for a unified framework, which will eventually consist of the SMESEC partners’ contributed products.

The SEMSEC products can cover a wide range of security market segments, and it is expected that the unification will bring even higher added value to the products and the project framework itself.

It was really an interesting review meeting, which showcased the added value of SMESEC framework. I would like to thank the consortium for the hospitality and the great organization of the meeting.
