The 5G Infrastructure Association launched an activity in 2016 to first, generate a strategy for developing a Pan-European 5G Trials Roadmap, and then, second, to prepare the comprehensive Trials Roadmap.
To generate these documents and roadmaps the 5G Infrastructure Association coordinates a 5G Trials Working Group expanding the work initiated by the Industry and EC in the context of respectively the 5G Manifesto of industry in Europe and the 5G Action Plan of the EU Commission. This group has to date produced 4 Versions of the Trials Roadmap.
Nov. 2018: The 5G Pan-EU Trials Roadmap Version 4.0 has just been released.
You can download this version of the Trials Roadmap here: 5G-PPP Trials Roadmap Version 4.0.
The 5G Pan-European Trials Roadmap Version 4.0 has been elaborated and is supported by the Trials Working Group (WG) Members organizations. It is coordinated by the 5G Infrastructure Association (5G-IA), expanding the work initiated by the Industry and the European Commission (EC) in the context of the 5G Manifesto and of the 5G Action Plan (5GAP).
This Roadmap Version 4.0 highlights the key EU cities that are targeted for 5G early deployments, already engaged in 5G pre-commercial/commercial trials and pilots, engaged in 5G R&I trials and pilots and also making available 5G R&I platforms.
