OPEN CALL 1: facts and figures

6G-XR Platform and Network Enablers

The purpose of Open Call 1 was to address identified gaps in the current 6G-XR experimental infrastructure and targets its further development and extension to make them ready for advanced experimentation in upcoming project open calls for experimentation. 

For the first Open Call, four key areas were identified for which third parties were invited to propose solutions.

1

Networking, computing enablers

such as slicing, service migration, orchestration, security.

2

XR enablers

including XR media processing and delivery functions along the end-to-end chain.

3

RAN enablers

interesting and innovative, but sufficiently mature, RAN technologies.

4

Sustainability enablers

for local green energy, controlling energy sources and charging/discharging, energy measurement and optimization solutions.

The four focus areas are further broken down into the following topics:

  1. Automated IP network measurement system 
  2. Edge discovery API 
  3. Holographics API 
  4. CAMARA QoD implementation over Open5GS 
  5. Fab Lab digital twin environment
  6. Advancing Heterogeneous XR Capture Systems 
  7. XR fusion 
  8. Wireless Connectivity for XR Sensors 
  9. Encoding solutions optimized for Point Cloud/Volumetric Video compression 
  10. Low-latency or scalable streaming protocols and methods for XR 
  11. QoE assessment models and methods for XR experiences 
  12. XR Interaction and Collaboration Software Modules and APIs 
  13. Multi-sensory communications and interactions
  14. End-to-end slicing with RAN resource sharing
  15. RAN or Sustainability enablers for local green energy, controlling energy sources and charging/discharging, energy measurement and optimization solutions
