Business Finland 6CORE

6G Bridge – Finland-Korea Collaborative Research on 6G System Architecture. This project is the Finnish counterpart to the Finland-Korea collaboration initiative on 6G system architecture research where Korea has its own national project as well led by ETRI. The 6CORE project is a strategic part of the University of Oulu 6G Flagship program. It builds upon the foundation laid by the former 6G Flagship work in this area but going deeper into selected key system architecture principles and technologies envisioned for the next generation networks. The implementation of the project is organised by dividing the work plan into three technical work packages (WPs). WP1 is mainly devoted to elaborate networking research problems including, e.g., deterministic data delivery, autonomous telco cloud fabric, and semantic routing related research tasks. The primary goal of WP2 is to develop and validate novel multi-networking approaches in conjunction with an open architecture to meet in an efficient and sustainable manner the stringent requirements of different 6G services. Wireless connectivity is the main theme of WP3 searching solutions to such research topics as dependable end-to-end & security, trust and privacy preserving connectivity, heterogeneous wireless networks orchestration and radio access level network slicing.

Industrial Distributed Edge Architecture over Machine Intelligence for Local Learning.

January 2021 - December 2023

The project consortium consists of the University of Helsinki, Aalto University (MOSA!C Lab), and Tampere University. The project has significant industry collaboration and an extensive international network of partners with planned researcher mobility.
The Industrial Distributed Edge Architecture over Machine Intelligence for Local Learning (IDEA-MILL) research project addresses the key challenges in future hyper-connected industrial systems to deliver innovative solutions, which are prepared to handle the extremely large data volumes collected from multiple heterogeneous sources, make adequate inference, and provide timely response. Our proposed distributed edge architecture diffuses machine intelligence across the network by bringing more critical and demanding applications closer to smart machines while moving lightweight data and local learning outcomes to the cloud for enterprise-level analytics. The methodology holistically combines AI, edge computing, and 5G radio concepts to facilitate remote control and collaborative telepresence applications. Our expected key scientific results are in developing efficient, flexible, and scalable methods that automate model training processes as well as control storage, computing, networking, and radio resources to minimize the associated costs and latencies (1) via scalable edge intelligence for distributed computing and analytics; (2) via flexible device-edge-cloud interworking for dedicated services; (3) via robust radio connectivity with on-demand topology management.

ACCORDION will achieve its design goal by leveraging the available resources at a private cloud, Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC), as well as end-devices, leaving the public cloud as a last resort. ACCORDION will also offer a ubiquitous and collaborative system that will address the needs and expectations of the next-generation application developers and infrastructure owners by offering a system that encompasses frameworks for next-generation application development, the establishment of an adaptive and robust cloud/edge infrastructure continuum, and the abstraction of widely heterogeneous pools. The ACCORDION project consists of three main layers that are on cascade one on top the other starting from the underlying edge infrastructure pool named Edge Infrastructure Pool Framework. The latter will help for creating a viable federation of edge and cloud resource and infrastructure owners. The second layer, dubbed edge/cloud continuum management framework, that offers different tools for achieving an intelligent interplay between edge and cloud resources, primarily aiming at the former and using the latter in the last resort basis as a “capacitor”. Finally, the last layer is application management framework that supports the development of next-generation “liquid” applications, formed from software that casually and effortlessly follows users as they use different types of computing devices by migrating computation, code and state flexibility between the devices.
