“Highlights of the 5G PPP Arch. White Paper V4.0: A European View on 5G Architecture and Beyond”

13 October 2021 @ 15:00 - 18:15 CEST

Virtual workshop Oct 2021:  Introduction to the 5G PPP Architecture

The workshop was organised in two parts:
The first part was organised as a webinar, which was hosted by the 5G PPP, to present the 5G PPP architecture white paper version 4.0.

The second part was a regular workshop included in the programme of the IEEE 5G World Forum conference.


3GPP standardization has been progressing at an astonishingly rapid phase, where Release 15 and Release 16 have set the foundations of the 5G system, while Release 17 provides enhancements and optimizations to enable support for further use cases. In parallel to 5G standardization efforts, several initiatives worldwide endeavour to drive and support the evolution of smart networks and services. Among others Europe is establishing the Joint Undertaking on Smart Networks and Services in the frame of the Horizon Europe programme for research and innovation. Other initiatives are complementing the European initiative, such as Secure 5G & Beyond Act in the U.S., roadmap towards 6G in Japan, MSIT 6G programme in S. Korea, and MIIT 6G programme in China.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for reflection and discussion about requirements and architectural considerations for future generations of mobile systems. The focus will be on presenting version 4.0 of the Architecture white paper developed by the 5G PPP architecture working group. It will allow to move from 5G and beyond towards a fully-fledged 6G architecture.
