Hack the 5G City: new Smart Apps in 5GCity slices

The 5GCity project, in its last year of execution, focuses on live demonstration of 5G services in three cities already going through digital transformation: Bristol, Barcelona, Lucca. 5GCity consortium will be involved in the organization and implementation of the 5GCity Hackathon.

Through our 5G management and orchestration platform and a powerful Service Development Kit (SDK) we offer access to a rich set of primitive functions for network and vertical application services which can be used to programme connectivity with QoS, media acquisition and transcoding, traffic monitoring in the new NFV infrastructures for 5G.

ORGANIZATION

The hackathon will start with a short workshop to let participants get familiar with the technologies offered by 5GCity. Each team will be assigned a mentor who will advise its members during design and implementation. Apart from the mentors, additional experts will be available to provide technical support. After the end of the hackathon, the teams will have to pitch their idea/product and demonstrate their software for evaluation from a jury. Finally, the jury will decide and announce the winning teams
Looking forward to seeing amazing outcomes with innovative practical solutions that reflect your abilities in Concept, Implementation, Presentation and Business plan!

Ideally we would like to have teams just working on 5G, NFV, SDN solutions, from research institutes or universities and from Vertical industries related to 5G (start-ups, SMEs, or companies).
