5GTANGO (5G Development and validation platform for global industry-specific network services and Apps)

Cloud Computing & 5G

5GTANGO is a 5GPPP Phase2 Innovation Action that enables the flexible programmability of 5G networks with: a) an NFV-enabled Service Development Kit (SDK); b) a Store platform with advanced validation and verification mechanisms for VNFs/Network Services qualification (including 3rd party contributions); and, c) a modular Service Platform with an innovative orchestrator in order to bridge the gap between business needs and network operational management systems.

5GTANGO creates an integrated vendor-independent platform where the outcome of the development kit, that is a packaged NFV forwarding graph, is automatically tested and validated in the Store for their posterior deployment with a customizable orchestrator compatible with common existing Virtual Infrastructure Managers (VIM) and SDN controllers in the market. This end-to-end ecosystem for the agile development and deployment of services realises an extended NFV DevOps model between service developers, telecom operators and vertical industries, increasing operational efficiency, facilitating the implementation and validation of new services and accelerating the adoption of NFV technologies.

The 5GTANGO system will be demonstrated in two vertical pilots: advanced Manufacturing and immersive Media. 5GTANGO will actively promote collaboration and try to influence the SDOs most relevant for the project such as ETSI NFV or IETF, as well as the key open source initiatives such as OSM and Open-O. It is also 5GTANGO’s ambition to make key contributions to the 5G-PPP Programme, the targeted KPIs and commits to work with its peer 5G-PPP projects.
