The aim of the project is to develop intelligent network management and control functions techniques, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) mechanisms for future mobile networks autonomous management and intelligent business analytics functionalities. For this purpose, IMMINENCE conceives 5G based use cases and scenarios, which are exploited by the corresponding ecosystem.

The main focus of IMMINENCE is to develop intelligent network management and control functions techniques:

  • New mechanisms for future mobile networks: Application Aware Networks, Self -configuration Networks
  • Intelligent network management: Adaptive Management, Autonomous Management
  • Intelligent business analytics capabilities: Advanced Business Intelligence, Data Analytics open platform.

In addition, we propose specific use cases to be implemented in IMMINENCE:

  • Autonomous Mobile Network Management and Moving Vehicle Scenario
  • Drones & UAV for future mobile networks in Emergency situations
  • Factory 4.0: Industrial Communications and Smart Factories and Remote control in Industrial environments
  • E-Health Services in Rural Areas
  • Network Management, Alarm and Monitoring based on business analytics in new scenarios. Modelling Quality of Experience (QoE) and detection of objects from video.

The different technologies developed in this project can enable Europe to lead the technological leadership in the above given areas. In addition, there is a very strong focus on the vertical industries(manufacturing, utilities, transport, etc.) in IMMINENCE, since they are the real benefiters of the use cases that will be implemented.
