The RELIANCE consortium, formed by 16 leading entities in the telecommunications sector, is coordinated at European level by SII Concatel. The project has been funded by the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI), by the innovation agency of Sweden, Vinnova, and by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBITAK).

In the short and medium term, the evolution of the Internet of the Future will mainly have its base in the 5G infrastructure. Providing comprehensive services, point to point, with the same infrastructure becomes one of the main challenges to be clarified.

The international project RELIANCE, an acronym for REsiLIent And scalable sliCing over multiplE domains, has as main objective the provision and deployment of a new level of services through a more flexible network architecture. The proposed solution, focused on the federation of network segments, will allow the dynamic combination of resources from multiple domains. In other words, the consortium aims to develop the concept of federated network segmentation to compose end-to-end services, covering different technical and administrative domains.

To respond to these technological challenges, RELIANCE will introduce the concept of slice choreography or section choreography, associated with the management of different federated segments. In other words, segments that are deployed transparently over different domains and that allow the deployment of services taking into account the requirements of scalability and reliability.

The coordination of the RELIANCE project, framed within the CELTIC-NEXT program, which in turn bears the EUREKA seal, is added to the rest of the European projects in which SII Concatel actively participates as a company committed to research and development. Development of new technological solutions in the field of Information and Communication Technologies.

he initiative positions RELIANCE and the consortium responsible for the project, in a position of leadership in the field of network research, in complete harmony with the objectives of the CELTIC-NEXT program on improved connectivity.
