MONROE Southern Stakeholders' meeting

Discussing cellular measurements for QoS assessment in future 5G and IoT systems

Date: Feb 8, 10:00-16: 00 (Tentative)

Where: IMDEA Networks, Leganes (Madrid), Spain


Measurement and experimentation in mobile broadband networks (MBB) have attracted considerable attention and fostered debates across Europe. The European Commission has initiated several initiatives, for example H2020 MONROE for the active and passive measurement of mobile broadband networks in Europe ( IMDEA Networks is involved in MONROE and its researcher Vincenzo Mancuso acts as technical manager in the project.

At MONROE we believe that it would be useful for interested parties such as operators, regulators and demanding use cases to meet to discuss and discuss all current approaches and requirements, and also to share ideas on how to capture quality in future 5G and IoT networks.

Therefore, IMDEA Networks is organizing a workshop in Leganes (Madrid) on February 8, 2018, to bring together operators and regulators from Southern European countries. The workshop is by invitation only and will be informal to motivate dialogues and open discussions.

We encourage participants to briefly present how they measure (their) networks. On the other hand, MONROE will present the capabilities of its platform, which can currently produce performance and reliability measurements, analysis of application performance (web and video services), network neutrality, international roaming analysis, etc.
