The present document addresses a challenging class of vertical applications, namely cyber-physical control applications, which require very high levels of communication service availability, and some of them also require very low end-to-end latencies.
The present document provides Stage 1 normative service requirements for 5G systems, in particular service requirements for cyber-physical control applications in vertical domains. In the context of the present document, cyber-physical systems are to be understood as systems that include engineered, interacting networks of physical and computational components; control applications are to be understood as applications that control physical processes.
Communication services supporting cyber-physical control applications need to be ultra-reliable and, in some cases, the end-to-end latency must be very low. Communication for cyber-physical control applications supports operation in various vertical domains, for instance industrial automation and energy automation.
The aspects addressed in the present document include:
end-to-end service performance requirements and network performance requirements related to these end-to-end service performance requirements;
support for LAN-type services specific to industrial/high performance use cases. Related Ethernet functionalities include, for example, those in IEEE 802.1Qbv.
