5G networks will meet the different requirements of new services and applications, such as IoT, virtual/augmented reality, autonomous cars, and precision agrobusiness. To deal with this diversity, multiple modes of operation, provided by different wireless access technologies, have been defined. In addition, 5G networks are being developed under an intense softwarization process, characterized by the use of cloud, virtualization and programmability. This process is significant in access networks and even more notable in the 5G core. Given the many challenges, there are still several open issues, such as the integration of non-3GPP IoT access network technologies to a 5G core. The SAMURAI project thus proposes to research, deploy and extend 5G systems, developing the software needed to demonstrate the integration of wireless access technologies into the 5G core. Additionally, the project will address issues related to the adoption of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) as a critical component in the evolution of 5G networks. Although standardization institutions are advancing in defining a framework, there are still several gaps for the full use of AI/ML in 5G. To overcome some of the most relevant gaps, the SAMURAI project will determine AI/ML algorithms and techniques suitable for problems in access and core networks, such as link adaptation to channel conditions, beam selection in millimeter waves and functionality positioning, in addition to advancing the state-of-the-art in data collection and use. Bringing together academic institutions and RNP, the project enables the assessment of AI/ML in a nationwide network, allowing the development of solutions that have predictable behavior and can be effectively adopted in production systems that leverage priority use cases in Brazil, such as online education enabled by long-distance networks.
