Webinar on 5G Trials in Europe: 5G Experimentation Facilities and Vertical Trials

Update 17 October 2020: You can catch up with the recording below:

Organised by the Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications of NCSR Demokritos in the frame of EU projects 5GENESIS and 5G!Drones and with the support of the 5G-PPP partnership, the workshop “5G Experimentation Facilities and Vertical Trials: Current Status and Future Perspectives” will be held online on Wednesday, 14th October.

The workshop will provide a space for sharing the recent developments of the ICT-17 5G experimentation facilities and the ICT-19 vertical trials. 5G-VICTORI Coordinator, Jesús Gutiérrez (IHP) will present the project activities during the session “5G Vertical Experimentation (5G-PPP ICT-19 Projects).”

The intense research work on 5G realisation has reached the point where the 5G capabilities are ready to be exploited by third party innovators, also referred to as vertical industries. In this context, the new ecosystem that emerges on service provisioning over 5G and beyond networks has two major stakeholders. On the one hand, the verticals that are ready to take advantage of the performance gains and the configuration flexibility that 5G brings; and, one the other hand, the operators (or  infrastructure owners) that eventually have a rich toolbox based on the virtualisation and the network slicing features, which enables new business opportunities.

The workshop is further complemented with presentations by invited projects from the Secure Societies and the 5G Long Term Evolution calls, showing 5G trials in the framework of first responder teams and discussing future perspectives of 5G.
