The 5th Generation of mobile networks (5G) aims to
provide a new infrastructure for an extremely high number of
diversified devices and applications. A new player has entered
the communication market: The machines not only communicate with
humans and among each other, but also take advantage from the new
internet and telecommunication developments to learn from each other
and to build the base for the industry of tomorrow, also known as
Within the 5G environment a huge number of devices will be connected to the network, using different communication requirements (delay/capacity), different communication patterns (on exceptional events, regular, continuous), different reliability requirements and information trust levels. Easy remote management/administration/calibration will also be needed. Open5G-MTC is a practical implementation based on ETSIM2M, oneM2M and OMA LWM2M standards with the main target of achieving more flexibility, programmability, resilience, faster response and security within a 5G environment for the Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IOT) communication.
Open5G-MTC is an R&D prototype, providing advanced features for device and connectivity management of a very large number of wireless devices (human controlled or machines). It enables the establishment of relevant device oriented testbeds including:
Connectivity and transport management for virtualised network infrastructures,
End-to-end service establishment,
Security and reliability of communication,
Device management and automation,
Cost effective support for x1000 devices testing and evaluation.
Open 5G-MTC can be integrated with the OpenMTC toolkits for adding M2M functionality and protocols.
