ATH / ISI 5G testbed facility

5G experimentation platform

Experimental activities include the development of a flexible platform for smart environments and an end-to-end 5G experimentation platform. The ATH/ISI 5G testbed facility, located at the ISI premises in Greece, implements a full-stack 5G system, as illustrated pictorially in the Figure, encompassing Core, Edge and RAN tiers as well as advanced 5G UE emulation capabilities. The ATH/ISI testbed is based on open-source frameworks and software stacks, including an Amarisoft 5G RAN and Core Network, Kubernetes/OpenStack based MEC nodes and ETSI OSM based Orchestration components. It is currently being upgraded with O-RAN compliance while Zero-Touch management, MANO and dynamic slice reconfiguration enablers are developed.
