https://www.comsoc.org/publications/ctn/5g-can-shape-mission-critical-healthcare-services Seamless connectivity for patients, first responders and health care professionals including medical centres is becoming an important aspect of the quality of emergency medical care. 5G networks and related technologies can significantly improve “care on the g...
Article
There is a lack of effective security solutions that autonomously, without any human intervention, detect and mitigate DDoS cyber-attacks. The lack is exacerbated when the network to be protected is a 5G mobile network. 5G networks push multi-tenancy to the edge of the network. Both the 5G user mobility and multi-tenancy are challenges to be addres...

Provisioning of network slices with appropriate Quality of Experience (QoE) guarantees is one of the key enablers for 5G networks. However, it poses several challenges in the slice management that need to be addressed to achieve an efficient end-to-end (E2E) services delivery. These challenges, among others, include the estimation of QoE Key Perfor...
Article
This paper presents the design and prototype implementation of the SELFNET fifth‐generation (5G) mobile edge infrastructure. In line with the current and emerging 5G architectural principles, visions, and standards, the proposed infrastructure is established primarily based on a mobile edge computing paradigm. It leverages cloud computing, software...
Article
Full-text available
The progress in realizing the Fifth Generation (5G) mobile networks has been accelerated recently towards deploying 5G prototypes with increasing scale. One of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in 5G deployments is the service deployment time, which should be substantially reduced from the current 90 hours to the target 90 minutes on average as...
Article
The Fifth-Generation (5G) networks, as the emerging next generation mobile networks, are adopting softwarization and virtualization technologies as the cornerstones for the network operators to gain significant competitive advantages by reducing both capital and operational expenditure, enabling agile and flexible service creation and deployment, a...

Full-text available
With the advances of new-generation wireless and mobile communication systems such as the fifth-generation (5G) mobile networks and Internet of Things (IoT) networks, demanding applications such as Ultra-High-Definition video applications is becoming ever popular. These applications require real-time monitoring and processing to meet the mission-cr...
Article
Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) video applications such as streaming are envisioned as a main driver for the emerging Fifth Generation (5G) mobile networks being developed worldwide. This paper focuses on addressing a major technical challenge in meeting UHD users' growing expectation for continuous high-quality video delivery in 5G hotspots where cong...

Botnets are one of the most powerful cyberthreats affecting continuity and delivery of existing network services. Detecting and mitigating attacks promoted by botnets become a greater challenge with the advent of 5G networks, as the number of connected devices with high mobility capabilities, the volume of exchange data, and the transmission rates...

Sharp increase of video traffic is expected to account for the majority of traffic in future 5G networks. This paper introduces the SELFNET 5G project and describes the video streaming use case that will be used to demonstrate the self-optimising capabilities of SELFNET’s autonomic network management framework. SELFNET’s framework will provide an a...
Article
To meet the challenging key performance indicators of the fifth generation (5G) system, the network infrastructure becomes more heterogeneous and complex. This will bring a high pressure on the reduction of OPEX and the improvement of the user experience. Hence, shifting today’s manual and semi-automatic network management into an autonomic and...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents and discuses the underlying infrastructure deployment of a cloud architecture used in our Data Center. This is based on a hybrid Virtual-Physical deployment for the cloud management platform OpenStack, where some of its principal management nodes of the cloud have been virtualized on a physical node. This particular infrastructu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Currently, network traffic monitoring tools do not fit well in the monitoring of cloud computing infrastructures. These tools are not integrated with the control plane of the cloud computing stack. This lack of integration causes a deficiency in the handling of the re-usage of IP addresses along virtual machines, a lack of adaption and reaction on...
Article
Chemotherapy treatment is the standard in triple negative breast cancers, a cancer subgroup which lacks a specific target. The mechanisms leading to the response, as well as any markers that allow the differentiation between responder and non-responder groups prior to treatment are unknown. In parallel, miRNAs can act as oncogenes or tumor suppress...
Article

Down syndrome (DS), one of the most common birth defects and the most widespread genetic cause of intellectual disabilities, is caused by extra genetic material on chromosome 21 (HSA21). The increased genomic dosage of trisomy 21 is thought to be responsible for the distinct DS phenotypes, including an increased risk of developing some types of chi...

End-to-End Cognitive Network Slicing and Slice Management Framework in Virtualised Multi-Domain, Multi-Tenant 5G Networks (https://slicenet.eu), supported by the European Commission as part of the H2020 5G PPP (https://5g-ppp.eu)
Project
The SELFNET project will design and implement an autonomic network management framework to achieve self-organizing capabilities in managing network infrastructures by automatically detecting and mitigating a range of common network problems that are currently still being manually addressed by network operators, thereby significantly reducing operational costs and improving user experience. SELFNET explores a smart integration of state-of-the-art technologies in Software-Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Self-Organizing Networks (SON), Cloud computing, Artificial intelligence, Quality of Experience (QoE) and Next-generation networking to provide a novel intelligent network management framework that is capable of assisting network operators in key management tasks: automated network monitoring by the automatic deployment of NFV applications to facilitate system-wide awareness of Health of Network metrics to have more direct and precise knowledge about the real status of the network; autonomic network maintenance by defining high-level tactical measures and enabling autonomic corrective and preventive actions against existing or potential network problems. SELFNET is driven by use cases designed to address major network management problems including Self-protection capabilities against distributed cyber-attacks, Self-healing capabilities against network failures, and Self-optimization to dynamically improve the performance of the network and the QoE of the users. SELFNET is designed within this economic and business context to substantially reduce operational costs of network operators by automating a significant number of current labour-intensive network management tasks. Therefore, SELFNET directly addresses the Network Management challenge highlighted by the EC.
