  • MEC at work: 4G and 5G deployments.
    MEC at work: 4G and 5G deployments. Sami Kekki, Huawei and Fabio Giust, Athonet, active participants of the ETSI MEC ISG. Recorded: Sep 13 2018 60 mins
    ETSI ISG MEC is the home of MEC standards. ETSI MEC has developed a flexible API framework for multi-access networks that can be deployed not only in 5G systems but in current 4G systems. MEC specifications support the transition from 4G to 5G, by enhancing the capabilities of current systems with full forward compatibility with the next generation. This webinar will explain these concepts, illustrating a few deployment options of MEC in 4G. It will also describe its relation with the key elements and functionalities of the brand new 5G architecture and explain their collaborative interactions with MEC. The content of this webinar is supported by two recently published ETSI white papers, “MEC Deployments in 4G and Evolution Towards 5G” and “MEC in 5G networks.”

    ETSI Multi-access Edge Computing: where we are, where we are going Alex Reznik, HPE, chair of ETSI MEC. Dario Sabella, Intel, secretary of ETSI MEC, Dirk Lindemeier, Nokia Recorded: May 16 2018 61 mins
    Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is one of the key building blocks of 5G and a market driver for current 4G networks. After a short introduction to MEC, this webinar will bring you through ETSI MEC progress and how the industry is using it to build actual commercial products, based on Nokia use case. We will also share how ETSI drives activities to help accelerate market adoption through hackathons, Proofs of Concepts, best practice and informative white papers.
  • Introduction to ETSI Software Radio Reconfiguration Standards
    Introduction to ETSI Software Radio Reconfiguration Standards Dr. Markus Mueck, Intel, Chairman of ETSI’s technical committee for Reconfigurable Radio Systems (TC RRS). Recorded: Dec 8 2017 59 mins
    Software radio reconfiguration offers solutions to recurring issues when linking hardware radio systems with software, allowing the upgrade and patching of radio systems deployed in the field. However, software radio systems must address a number of issues:

    • How to transfer and install radio software components in a secure way

    • How to provide access to new software components to a user/operator

    • How to deal with device certification and type approval issues when new radio software components can modify the radio behaviour of a device

    • How to provide software portability and achieve efficient radio performance

    • How to gradually evolve a system towards software reconfigurability

    ETSI’s Software Radio Reconfiguration model provides a modular and scalable solution to the challenge of deploying and using software radio systems. The solution, described in a recent ETSI white paper and in the EN 303 146 series of European Standards, allows a gradual and stepwise deployment of software reconfigurable radio, through different generations of equipment. This enables device manufacturers to gradually implement software reconfigurable radios, developing confidence at each step of the way.

    Dr. Markus Mueck, of Intel, is the chairman of ETSI’s technical committee for Reconfigurable Radio Systems (TC RRS). In this webinar, he will explain in more details the advantages of software radio reconfiguration, and explain how the ETSI Software Radio Reconfiguration model addresses each of the issues identified above.
  • Getting started with ETSI Test Description Language
    Getting started with ETSI Test Description Language Philip Makedonski, University of Göttingen, TC MTS and Martti Käärik, Elvior, TC MTS Recorded: Nov 21 2017 62 mins
    This webinar walks the audience through the main ingredients of the Test Description Language (TDL) standardized at ETSI. It showcases the use of TDL for designing scenario-based test purposes and test descriptions, using examples from test suites standardized at ETSI. An integrated development environment for TDL, developed as part of the TDL Open Source Project (TOP) under the guidance of the ETSI Technical Committee Method for Testing and Specification (TC MTS), will be demonstrated as means to get started with using TDL today.
  • NFV Tutorial on VNF Package specification
    NFV Tutorial on VNF Package specification Bruno Chatras, Orange (SOL WG Chair); Andrei Kojukhov, Amdocs (Rapporteur) Recorded: Jul 12 2017 47 mins
    This Webinar will provide a high level overview of ETSI activities on the development of REST APIs for NFV Management and Orchestration, followed by a tutorial on the VNF Package specification that has just been completed.
    The VNF package specification ETSI GS NFV-SOL 004 defines a standard way for VNF providers to deliver VNFs to service providers and makes the delivery simple, effective and efficient. A uniform VNF package format enables automatic execution of VNF on-boarding and acceptance testing, and allows the VNFs to be interoperable with independently developed NFV management and orchestration systems.
    The VNF package specification leverages the TOSCA YAML CSAR archive format by adding all necessary integrity and authenticity features.
  • Radio Equipment Directive: How do ETSI’s Harmonised Standards assist?
    Radio Equipment Directive: How do ETSI’s Harmonised Standards assist? Dr. Michael Sharpe, Director of Spectrum and Equipment Regulation at ETSI Recorded: Apr 27 2017 91 mins
    Since 13 June 2016, European Union Member States applied new rules for placing radio equipment on the European market and putting them into service. From 13 June this year, all radio equipment being placed on the market or put into service must comply with the new Radio Equipment Directive (RED), 2014/53/EU. ETSI’s Harmonised Standards are often the preferred method of demonstrating compliance with European radio regulations. This webinar will explain how industry can access the EU market using ETSI Harmonised Standards, provide an update on the status of availability of ETSI’s Harmonised Standards, and indicate alternative paths in the cases where Harmonised Standards are not yet available.

    Dr. Michael Sharpe is the Director of Spectrum and Equipment Regulation at ETSI. He is responsible for ensuring effective co-operation of ETSI’s technical activities with the work of key regulatory bodies and partner standards bodies at the National, European and Global level. His current priorities include working with the European Commission to ensure the smooth introduction of the Radio Equipment Directive, and the continuing close co-operation with CEPT and the Commission Radio Spectrum Unit to ensure that ETSI Harmonised Standards and Regulations on radio frequency use are developed in a co-ordinated and effective manner.

  • MEC PoC#8 Webinar – Video Analytics
    MEC PoC#8 Webinar – Video Analytics Dirk Lindemeier, Nokia, Andreas Beerbaum, SeeTec and Easwaren Siva, Vodafone Hutchison Australia Recorded: Sep 23 2016 62 mins
    As urbanization continues, cities need to become smarter, which includes leveraging information systems for improving the safety and wellbeing of their citizens. Many of these systems rely on extensive deployment of distributed sensors. These sensors generate large amounts data which calls - in particular in the context of public safety - for efficient real-time processing strategies in order to detect incidents as quickly as possible for initiating appropriate counter actions. Also, sensor data handling is typically governed by tight requirements for data privacy, meaning that data needs to be appropriately protected and cannot be carried outside of the city perimeter.

    Video Analytics is an end to end use case for providing video surveillance to cities, municipalities, and enterprises over an LTE network. Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is used for analysing raw video streams from surveillance cameras connected over LTE, and for forwarding relevant incidents to the local control room. This use case benefits from MEC which provides analysis capacity close to the network edge, as well as local break-out of network traffic. This saves video transmission bandwidth, as a lot of processing can take place close to the point of capture to reduce the amount of data forwarded, and local break out allows to consume locally-produced high volume data locally without routing them through larger parts of the network.

    Nokia, Vodafone Hutchison Australia and SeeTec have run a MEC proof of concept (PoC) during the Informa MEC congress in Munich. As use cases, the classification / counting of people, and the tracking of object presence/absence were demonstrated. This webinar describes the architecture of the PoC, presents the demonstrated use cases and discusses the findings of the PoC.
