5G-Connected Virtualized Enterprise Infrastructure for Smart City

In 5G context, Mobile Service Providers should provide future mobile networks that can support at least the following four demands: mobile broadband, ultra-low latency, dense broadband and massive connectivity. This paper is proposing a “all-in-one” solution that could deliver all the services, to every de-vice, everywhere in the network in a viable option, from the Enterprise Network Segment perspective. The main role of this Segment will be to identify the key vertical sectors’ requirements, anticipating re-levant trends early and mapping them into the 5G architecture. From the enterprise networks perspective, the challenge regarding 5G is to provide end-to-end network and cloud infrastructure slices over the phy-sical infrastructure in order to fulfil specific requirements for the 5G use cases. In our case, the Enterprise Segment for Smart City will connect sensors, machines, city administrations and citizens to cloud-based IoT applications and we will prototype it. Our IoT platform will be implemented using an open source appli-cation, as the platform to be deployed and prototyped also may be exposed to different scenarios of deve-lopments, as a simplified ecosystem for building and managing the app into a more automatic and progra-mmable perspective.
