5GROWTH & 5G-DIVE Exploration Workshop “Experiences from field trial about vertical industry”

29 October 2021 @ 9:00 - 12:00 CEST

Driven by cellular technology, a rapid transformation of all industries is underway, with countless innovative solutions reshaping every sector for the better. Any sector can harness cellular to solve ongoing challenges and boost their agility, efficiency, safety, and profitability.

In this context, business and technical aspects are strictly related as the new 5G paradigm has the merit not only to allow a simple “cable replacement” but also to unlock important use cases (UC) which were not possible with legacy technologies.

Several actors or “stakeholders” are involved in this revolution: verticals, Mobile Network Operators (MNO), Small and Medium Enterprises (SME), and vendors of communication systems.

5GROWTH and 5G-DIVE explored the concrete applicability of 5G technologies to real-world use-cases across various vertical sectors, by the realization of advanced 5G validation trials aimed at proving the technical merits and business value proposition of 5G technologies.

This workshop aims at presenting the key aspects inferred by the project’s outputs from several perspectives: vertical operators, vendors, SME, with scope to highlight the opportunities, challenges, and critical aspects to perform concrete exploitation.
