The members of the 5G Infrastructure Association have the pleasure to invite media and ICT industry analysts to a briefing on the evolution of European 5G initiatives from Research to Trials at Mobile World Congress 2017. The event will be held on the 28th of Feb from 14:00 to 15:30 in the Press Conference Room 1, in the Media Village at the MWC in Barcelona.
The European work for the preparation of 5G has been progressing dramatically under the leadership of the 5G-Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP), notably after the launch of the strategic projects of the first phase in 2015. The progress achieved to date will be presented in a new White Paper – “5G innovations for new business opportunities” – which will be issued at the event. The paper identifies recommendations of the EU telecom sector towards harmonized 5G standardisation, spectrum, deployment and regulation from this work.
During the event, Roberto Viola, Director General of DG CONNECT at the European Commission, as well as executives from leading global technology member companies, will discuss the progress being achieved through European 5G Research, the emergence of 5G standards, and prospects for investments in the new infrastructure, while representatives of the vertical industries and the public sector will outline their needs and expectations for 5G. A major discussion point will be technology experiments, validation tests, and eventually field trials as outlined in 5G Action Plan that will be needed between now and 2020 to facilitate the development of 5G. The roadmap for the implementation of advanced pre-commercial trials, to be launched in key sectors in 2018 and to be promoted at EU level, will then be presented, in view of ensuring Europe leadership in the context of the accelerated global agenda for the introduction of 5G.
