ICT 2015 (http://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/ict2015-innovate-connect-transform-lisbon-20-22-october-2015) took place in Lisbon on October 20-22, 2015. It gathered 5,748 participants that attended the main conference, the several workshops, the exhibitions and the various networking sessions this event offered.
The 5G PPP initiative and many of its key players were actively participating to ICT2015 in several ways:
Several H2020 projects were present on the 5G PPP booth, including 5G NORMA, FANTASTIC-5G, X-Haul, METIS-II, mmMAGIC and EURO-5G.
5G NORMA successfully re-presented 5G-PPP at ICT2015 together with other Horizon 2020 projects. 5G-NORMA showed its vision and showcased a video which illustrates its envisioned Proof of Concept. The video, available at https://goo.gl/hGfa8H, shows how 5G-NORMA will impact different key aspects of the future 5G networks such as the increase in the mobile data volume, support for flexibility and diverse services, and reduced service creation time. The video, broadcast during the three days of the event on a HD screen, gathered the attention of many visitors interested in both the project contents and its role within the 5G PPP portfolio.
METIS-II presented its visualization platform. Professional “Serious Game Engineering” concepts and tools are used to visualise the use case scenarios, the achievable network capabilities and features, and the individual benefit of 5G that a user can experience.
FANTASTIC-5G revealed its vision and latest results on 5G use cases to be supported by a New Air Interface within the 5GPPP booth during ICT 2015. The technical manager of FANTASTIC-5G, Berna Sayrac (ORANGE), represented the project and explained the approach to the many visitors.
mmMAGIC was showcased in two days at the 5G PPP booth during ICT 2015 Conference in Lisbon, receiving great interest from an international audience attending the conference. The project was also highlighted at the first 5G Multilateral Workshop between Regional Initiatives on 5G Spectrum and Standards which was held on October 20 in conjunction with ICT 2015.
