At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 5G PPP, the 5G Public Private Partnership between the European Commission and the 5G Infrastructure Association, launched its inaugural vision paper which outlines how 5G will create a single digital economy and put Europe back in the driving seat with a ubiquitous network. This network will connect people, things and services based on a plethora of innovation unseen before at such scale.
The European society and economic performance will strongly rely on 5G infrastructure in the years beyond 2020. 5G is more than an evolution of mobile broadband technology. It is an enabler for a truly digital society with ubiquitous, ultra-high-speed communications infrastructure that will support all economic sectors as well as ever-growing consumer demand for new services. 5G is also an opportunity for the European ICT sector, which is already well positioned in the global R&D race and contributes about 5% to Europe’s GDP, to expand its leadership position globally.
