PoC Demo 1 – Static setup of local IoT traffic breakout, Feb 2017, Mobile World Congress 2017, Barcelona
Poc Demo 2 – Dynamic setup of local IoT traffic breakout based on performance KPIs or external trigger, Sep 2017, MEC Congress 2017, Berlin
This PoC considers a typical Industry 4.0 (RAMI 4.0 - Platform 4.0 Industrie)* IoT use-case for latency, mobility and location sensitive applications, wherein a MEC host with local RAN breakout can enable massively scalable real-time duplex trusted transit delivery of data between IoT devices (sensors, actuators, control systems etc.) and cloud based industrial applications that leverage low-latency transactions with real-time meta-data on localized usage, security and QoS. The PoC will simulate a real-world Industry 4.0* use case and demonstrate several value drivers for stakeholders driving IoT.
This PoC will leverage Xaptum’s distributed Peering IP-Overlay Network for IoT and extend their peering Xaptum ENF (Edge Network Fabric) Run-Time Architecture to the mobile edge for low latency and secure communication in Industrial IoT devices and applications. By combining Xaptum ENF with Oberthur’s embedded cryptographic authentication SE (Secure Element) offering and vendor neutral TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) and DAA (Direct Anonymous Attestation) to both IoT device and application end-points, we shall be able to demonstrate several use-cases that meet stringent requirements for industrial applications as defined by leading Industry 4.0 standards.
The entirety of the PoC will be deployed over an NFV infrastructure to highlight the benefits of COTS hardware and to reap the benefits of orchestration and automation. The PoC will leverage RIFT.io RIFT.ware, a commercially supported offering of the ETSI Open Source MANO (OSM).
This PoC is WORKING on:
PoC Contribution to PT01 and PT03 (Technical Report) is expected by Q3 2017
PoC Report is expected by Q4 2017
