What is 5G Sandbox Simulation?
The 5G Sandbox simulation project aims to address issues of restricting R&D opportunities for research communities and provide users with easy-to-access experimentation of network stacks with just commercially Off-the-shelf (COTS) components. With the assistance of the Sandbox tool, it will set the trend of creating a larger community with dense knowledge base and allow the next course of network operations and deployments to be more accessible.
With open-source software communities engaged, the tools will allow us to perform changes, and configurations and build the required knowledge on emerging telecommunication technologies.
Our setup consists of a large number of components and thereby requires a high computational requirement for a seamless experience. Therefore, to make it accessible to everyone who wishes to use it, the platform is hosted on a cloud service. Exclusive access is currently awarded to the users of the 5G Innovation Centre universities.
To start with the simulation, the following things are needed:
- IP address with the username for your cloud service platform
- .PEM certificate file of the server
- Visual Studio Codeinstalled on your computer
Note: the IP address, username, and the PEM file will be provided by our team to the University’s 5G Innovation Centre Lab Director.
Workshop: 16th November 2022
The following use cases have been implemented as part of the first workshop
