5G-PPP Automotive Working Group has released a new brochure on "Trials and Pilots for Connected and Automatd Mobility" that aims at providing a schematic and visual summary of the key use cases, key performance indicators, and tests and pilots being conducted in the context of research and innovation projects funded by the 5G-PPP which contribute to enabling efficient and reliable 5G-V2X communications for CAM.

The brochure can be downloaded here.

Next Web Seminar on Monday 14th June 2021 at 12:00 CE.

Next 5GCroCo web seminar relies on the work detailed in “Intermediate E2E, MEC & Positioning Architecture” with respect to the specification of the 5GCroCo MANO and SDN architectures. Moreover, it provides some insights with respect to the specific work done in the context of the Barcelona small-scale site with respect to the automated provisioning and orchestration of the Anticipated Cooperative Collision Avoidance (ACCA) service.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Motivations, Background and Challenges
  • Standardization Aspects in Multi-domain Environments
  • Cross-domain Service Orchestration
  • End-to-end Network Slicing
  • Internet eXchange Point (IXP), MANO & SDN Aspects
  • Future Work

  • Session continuity: 3GPP gateway switching
  • Session & service continuity: 3GPP session continuity + discovering and switching MEC-hosted application servers incl. examples based on 5GCroCo use cases Anticipated Cooperative Collision Avoidance (ACCA) and HD Mapping
  • MEC in context of cross-border / -MNO handover
  • Joined management and orchestration of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) and MEC-hosted Application Servers
  • Deployments for controlled end-to-end QoS across multiple MNOs
  • Overview of conducted and planned trials   

Speaker Bio: 

Maciej Muehleisen received his PhD on “Voice over LTE” from RWTH Aachen University in 2015 and worked as a group leader for vehicular communication at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) from 2012 until 2016 focusing on highly reliable aircraft and maritime networks.

He is with Ericsson Research since 2017 and leads the architecture work package of the EU funded 5GCroCo projects on 5G for CCAM in cross-border environments. where he also serves as deputy Technical Coordinator. As “Industry Verticals Coordination” in the Research Area “Networks” he is furthermore supporting the technical coordination of Ericsson’s efforts in the Automotive Edge Computing Association (AECC) and 5G Automotive Association (5GAA).

His key research interest is in end-to-end design, evaluation, and approval of safety critical communication services. 


EuCNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications), in its 30th edition, supported by the European Commission; and the 6G Summit, in its 3rd edition,  will be held virtually from the 8th to 11th June 2021.

5GCroCo will partipate in the following activities:

  • 5G for CCAM for Cross-Border Corridors Workshop, on Tuesday, 8 June 2021, 9:30-13:00, together with 5G-MOBIX and 5G CARMEN


  • Maciej Muehleisen, will present “Performance and Service Continuity of HD Map Downloads in MEC Enabled Cross-Border Mobile Radio Networks “, on Wednesday 9th June 2021 11:30, in IoT Services and 5G Technologies Session.



Next Monday 17th the last session of the Docker Security Guidelines Web Seminar will be held. Registration are now open.


Container technologies have seen a rise in popularity in recent years. They provide a convenient way of packaging applications for deployment in production and offer lightweight alternatives to virtual machines (VMs). However, containers do not offer the same security benefits as VMs and - from a security perspective - many things can be done wrong when developing and running containerized workloads.

This web-seminar gives an overview of security threats and common vulnerability patterns related to designing, developing, and deploying docker containers. The focus are the most common docker vulnerability patterns, as seen "in the wild" from the experience of security assessments and based on security best practices. Insecure practices, potential misconfigurations and common pitfalls related to the building of docker images, containers at runtime, and the host environment are covered. For every issue, secure solutions, available protection mechanisms, as well as examples are provided.

The target audience of this web-seminar are developers with a basic understanding of docker who want and need to ensure they build and run containerized workloads in a secure manner. Only issues to docker and docker-compose are covered. More complex container orchestration tools, such as Kubernetes or OpenShift, are out of scope. As preparation we suggest reading Section 4.5.3 of 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.2
