5G ESSENCE addresses the paradigms of Edge Cloud computing and Small Cell as a Service by fuelling the drivers and removing the barriers in the Small Cell market, forecasted to grow at an impressive pace up to 2020 and beyond and to play a key role in the 5G ecosystem. 5G ESSENCE provides a highly flexible and scalable platform, able to support new business models and revenue streams by creating a neutral host market and reducing operational costs by providing new opportunities for ownership, deployment, operation and amortisation.

Estimated impact

5GEssence introduces innovations in softwarization, virtualization and cognitive management to provide a highly flexible and scalable platform capable of supporting new business models.

5G ESSENCE leverages knowledge, SW modules and prototypes from various 5G-PPP Phase-1 projects, SESAME being particularly relevant. Building on these foundations, very ambitious objectives are targeted, culminating with the prototyping and demonstration of 5G ESSENCE system in three real-life use cases associated to vertical industries, i.e., edge network acceleration in a crowded event, mission critical applications, and in-flight communications.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 / 5G-PPP research and innovation programme under Grand Agreement No 761592.
