Use Case 2:

Collaborative Robotic Exploration of Mining Environments

This use case showcases the federation of Private Networks within an overarching 6G ecosystem (“Network of Networks” concept) with applications in harsh and demanding mining environment.

The OULOU facility will act as an Aggregation Node, securely federating the stand-alone private network on wheels in Luleå site as a third party (non-end-to-end) resource domain fully leveraging the capabilities of the Open Federation framework.

This scenario also showcases AI Plane federation concept, allowing the testbed to operate as the AIaaS “Supernode”. Thus, it is able to assist the resource-constrained site in zero-touch infrastructure optimization tasks.
