This workshop presented and discussed recent research results covering the need for 5G spectrum and the suitability of the frequency bands under consideration (sub-GHz to millimetre) for 5G to provide ambitious services and adequate coverage, especially leveraging the 5G PPP projects advancements. Special attention will be given to the vertical industry requirements.
As no wireless 5G service can be provided without satisfactory access to radio spectrum – regulatory spectrum availability for enabling timely trials and commercial roll-outs of 5G technology and service provision will be discussed. The availability and selection of the right 5G frequencies is of crucial importance to the current on-going international standardisation, to the European industry stakeholders 5G Manifesto and to the EC’s 5G Action Plan, as also pointed out in the RSPG opinion on 5G spectrum.
The workshop was attended but over 80 experts and their presentations and discussions are presented on the program page.
