OREOS
Orchestration and Resource optimization for rEliable and lOw-latency Services

Challenge

In the current virtualized environments (NFV), the allocation of the necessary resources to support some Management and Orchestration services, raises new problems such as i) what functions it should perform to support the service, ii) where to perform each of these functions taking into account the distribution of resources (e.g., on the device itself, in the Cloud, or on the Edge), iii) when to migrate each of the functions or iv) when to change the optimization models taking into account the current policies. These issues are particularly difficult to address in support of critical communication services, which combine very low latency and high reliability requirements.

Solution

The objective of OREOS project is to design and implement an end-to-end orchestration platform for provisioning and managing critical services (such as vehicle communications, electrical distribution networks or emergency communications from public or private entities) in the context of fifth generation (5G) mobile communications. The project thus intends to address advanced technological challenges associated with the evolution of 5G networks, in particular the support of services based on ultra reliable and low latency communications (URLLC), which will be essential for the expected disruption in areas such as automotive or smart cities.
