IoT and 5G uses cases (Hall 4, Auditorium 4)
Under the theme of “IoT and 5G…brought to life”, some of the most exciting IoT demos in automotive, manufacturing or connectivity will be presented by leading players, disruptors and newcomers. During the main conference session, at 11.30 on Thursday (1-March), the following 5G-PPP representatives will speak about technologies that will have a direct impact on 5G and IoT applications:
Jean-Pierre Bienaimé, 5G-IA Secretary General will be among the keynote speakers, presenting an overview of the 5G PPP Projects and expected impact on 5G & IoT applications
Panagiotis Demestichas and Dr. Evangelos Kosmatos of WINGS ICT Solutions will present a demo from the ONE5G project. ONE5G consortium partner “WINGS ICT Solutions” will present demo on “Serving underserved areas through 5G (IoT and big data) technologies: A critical infrastructure and agricultural use case”
New 5G Architecture WG white paper
Revised version of 5G PPP Architecture Working Group view on 5G Architecture
The 5G PPP Architecture Working Group published its revised view on 5G Architecture at the end of December 2017. The first version was released after one year research mainly from 16 projects. The revised version highlights the key 5G architecture design recommendations from 5G PPP Phase 1 and provides a baseline architecture for Phases 2 and 3.
The 5G Architecture Working Group as part of the 5G PPP Initiative is looking at capturing novel trends and key technological enablers for the realization of the 5G architecture. It also targets at presenting in a harmonized way the architectural concepts developed in various projects and initiatives (not limited to 5G PPP projects only) so as to provide a consolidated view on the technical directions for the architecture design in the 5G era. The first version of the white paper was released in July 2016, which captured novel trends and key technological enablers for the realization of the 5G architecture vision along with harmonized architectural concepts from 5GPPP Phase 1 projects and initiatives. Capitalizing on the architectural vision and framework set by the first version of the white paper, this Version 2.0 of the white paper presents the latest findings and analyses with a particular focus on the concept evaluations, and accordingly it presents the consolidated overall architecture design.
SELFNET will present in this workshop its network management framework, which provides three major benefits for 5G networks:
The SELFNET framework helps operators build a resilient network infrastructure for 5G, which makes the most effective use of the network technologies they already have.
The SELFNET framework enables service providers to significantly reduce the time for service creation, depending on the conditions down to about 10 minutes. The SELFNET framework can help network operators significantly reduce the total cost of ownership for their network infrastructures.
Barcelona, Spain- February 26th- March 1st
The next MWC will be again a major promotion opportunity for 5G PPP projects. 5G-IA and 5G PPP participation are on going. A stand has been booked in Hall 7. Videos from 5G PPP projects will be displayed; paper brochures will also be available there.
Four 5G PPP Projects will have demos/videos : 5GCAR, 5GXHaul, 5GMoNarch and ONE5G, respectively at the MWCapital booth and at the Conference session on « 5G & IoT use cases ».

“Cloud Technologies and Energy Efficiency in Mobile Communication Networks”
In this 2018 edition, a particular emphasis to edge cloud, MEC and vertical segments will be given, due to the growing interest of these topics toward 5G networks.
The ONE5G project focuses on boosting the capacity of mobile networks, improving their energy efficiency and enabling a variety of new vertical use cases in dense urban areas as well as in rural environments. ONE5G has received eight million Euros in funding from the European Commission under the EU’s “Horizon 2020” initiative to drive research that enables a swift move towards 5G NR and advance digitization.
The 5G CHAMPION “5G Communication with a Heterogeneous, Agile Mobile network in the PyeongChang Winter Olympic competition” Project develops key enabling technologies for a proof-of-concept environment to be showcased at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, Korea. This will allow maximum visibility for the available technology two years ahead of 2020, i.e. the official launch of 5G. 5G-CHAMPION is led by CEA-LETI on the EU side and by ETRI on the South Korean side.
Several workshops focusing on 5G. Several 5G PPP projects involved.
A main 5G workshop approaching the last innovations and research activities in 5G PPP is organised:
