5G PPP “5G empowering verticals” @ MWC 2016 in Barcelona

22 February 2016 @ 14:00 - 15:00 CET

The 5G PPP participation at the Mobile World Congress 2016 will include a Media and Analyst briefing on the launch of the 5G PPP White paper “5G empowering verticals” to be held on Monday 22, 2016 afternoon in the Media Village.

5G network infrastructures will be a key asset to support the digitalization of economic and societal processes, leading to the fourth industrial revolution impacting multiple sectors. This White Paper depicts innovative digital use cases from most important vertical sectors and how requirements from verticals impact 5G design. It also presents how 5G will open the field to new business value propositions by cementing strong relationships between vendors, operators and verticals. Deploying 5G for vertical markets in Europe by 2020 (the earliest date currently contemplated by the industry) should be a common framing objective.

During the event, Mr. Günther H. Oettinger, European Commissioner, Digital Economy and Society, and executives from global top technology companies will discuss the impact of 5G on digital society and digital economy, as well as requirements from vertical industries, business models, architectures and standardization aspects of 5G.
