Avanti confirms successful integration, testing of 5G Limassol platform

Friday 12 July 2019 | 13:38 CET | News

Avanti Communications achieved a significant milestone in the 5Genesis project with the successful integration and testing of the first release of the 5G Limassol platform in Cyprus. The functional network is enabled by satellite backhauling through Avanti’s Hylas 2 satellite, with added virtualisation functionalities at the core and edge networks of PrimeTel.

This development paves the way to integrate a 5G core and a 5G base station in 2020 as they become available from consortium partners Athonet and Eurecom respectively, Avanti said.

Moreover, as part of the preparation for demonstrating a complete 5G End-to-End test case, the IoT application provided by the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia was also integrated into the platform with both its physical and virtual components at the core and at the edge.

As part of the integrated setup, Avanti installed a 1.2 m iDirect terminal providing satellite backhaul bandwidth (15Mbps downlink / 5Mbps uplink) through Hylas 2 to the Limassol platform using Avanti’s Gateway Earth Station located in Cyprus.

The integration of the 5G Limassol platform is coordinated by Space Hellas Cyprus who is responsible for the overall architecture. The platform itself is hosted at PrimeTel's premises, using its Limassol data centre for hosting as well as providing local and remote connectivity to its terrestrial operational network. The Limassol platform is one of the five platforms comprising the 5GEnesis 5G facility.
