The Mosaic5G develops, promotes, and shares an ecosystem of open-source platforms and use-cases for 4G-5G system research and prototyping leveraging SDN, NFV, and MEC. It explores advanced RAN and CN architectures towards a service-oriented architecture along the following directions – control and user plane programmability, model-driven network service orchestration with RAN and CN plugins, and network application store and SDK. It strives to transform radio access and core networks into an agile network service delivery platform to rapidly explore new ideas as well as application and business needs
The Mosaic5G membership is open to operators, service providers, vendors, and academic institutions who wants to use it as well as contribute and/or collaborate within its ecosystem. The initiative offers three levels of membership to respond to diverse requirements and to promote participation.
