The 2021 Joint EuCNC & 6G Summit took place from 08 to 11 June in a dedicated virtual platform. The European H2020 projects 5GMETA and 5G-LOGINNOV, organized a joint workshop titled ‘Connectivity and Beyond: How the 5G Ecosystem Empowers the Port, Logistics and Automotive Industries’ on 08 June. This workshop explored the various applications of 5G, with a focus on the logistics and automotive sectors. Additionally, the 5G-LOGINNOV project was presented in a demonstration in one of the virtual exhibition booths. 

The vision of the 5G-LOGINNOV project is to design an innovative framework addressing integration and validation of Connected Automated Driving/Mobility (CAD/CAM) technologies related to the industry 4.0 and port domains by creating new opportunities for LOGistics value chain INNOVation. 5G-LOGINNOV is supported by 5G technological blocks, including new generation of 5G terminals notably for future CAD/CAM new types of Industrial Internet of Things devices, data analytics, next generation traffic management and emerging 5G network architectures, for city ports to handle upcoming and future capacity, traffic, efficiency and environmental challenges. Thanks to the new advanced capabilities of 5G relating to wireless connectivity and core network agility, 5G-LOGINNOV ports will not only significantly optimize their operations but also minimize their environmental footprint to the city and the disturbance to the local population.

The objective of the 5G-LOGINNOV booth demonstration and participation in the EuCNC event was to showcase the 5G-LOGINNOV Private 5G network capabilities supporting implementation of novel 5G technologies and cutting-edge prototypes tailored to be operated in port ecosystems. Cloud-native principles will enable on-demand provisioning of Private 5G mobile network and 5G IoT services. They will assure the expected network and application performance metrics and KPIs, and finally they will enable on boarding, deployment automation and other required functions such as scalability, high availability and resilience of the operated services and applications. These mechanisms present essential capabilities that are required to run the most demanding logistics, Industry 4.0 and mission critical use cases in the future European ports.

The 5G-LOGINNOV project was presented in a demonstration in one of the virtual exhibition booths. The EuCNC exhibition was used as an important European event where beyond state-of-the-art capabilities of 5G-LOGINNOV were released and showcased to the technical and business-side and the public.The  demonstration was used to promote 5G-LOGINNOV’s vision and to collect valuable feedback from several industrial vertical stakeholders. The ‘Private 5G mobile system for future European ports’ demonstration showcased the implementation of novel 5G technologies (Private 5G mobile network operating in SA mode) and cutting-edge prototypes (5G IoT platform operating in SA mode) tailored to the need of future port environments. A private 5G network live (on-line) demonstration at the EuCNC was realized on top of a cloud-based infrastructure and showcased specific 5G-LOGINNOV technology support and solutions for rapid deployment and reconfiguration of a network and services components that have to operate reliably and with high availability, under strict industrial and security conditions in targeted port domains.
