5GCity is an H2020 project, part of 5G-PPP Phase 2 portfolio, funded by the EC. In the scope of the project, a distributed Edge Cloud and radio platform for 5G Neutral Hosts (such as municipalities and infrastructure owners) has been designed, developed and implemented. The platform incorporates a hierarchical architecture embedding network and computing and storage resources distributed across Small Cells, in several elements throughout the city (lampposts, urban furniture, street cabinets, and data centers). It’s main goal is to demonstrate the benefits of the Neutral Hosting paradigm and how different stakeholders may tap into the 5G market and benefit from its ability to deliver the needed requirements for specific verticals.

The platform demonstrates how different Service Providers may request a dedicated 5G slice composed of both 5G radio and compute resources on which different services and applications will run - most of them in the Edge, closer to the user, to achieve lower latency and make use of widely and possibly smaller and more constrained compute resources. 5G City has successfully illustrated, through pilots held in Barcelona, Bristol and Lucca, how reinforcing the city’s infrastructures and turning them into hyperconnected 5G distributors directly impacts on telecommunication providers, municipalities and the vertical sectors involved.

 This project has received funding from the EU´s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 761508
