Trials and testbeds was a major topic @ WWRF’17 “Ready ‘n’ Go- 5G Trials and Testbeds” in Castelldefels, Spain on October 18-20.
SONATA, 5GTANGO, 5GCAR, 5G-Crosshaul, 5G-Transformer presented their objectives/results. Mr. Colin Willcock, Chairman, represented the 5G-IA and gave a high-level overview of the 5G Pan-EU trial roadmap on October 18, 2017.
Trials roadmap @5G-IA
The 5G Infrastructure Association launched an activity in 2016 to (1) create a strategy for developing a Pan-European 5G Trials Roadmap, and (2) prepare the comprehensive Trials Roadmap. To generate these documents and roadmaps the 5G Infrastructure Association initiated and coordinates a 5G Trials Working Group expanding the work kicked-off by Industry and EC in the context of respectively the 5G Manifesto of industry in Europe and the 5G Action Plan of the EU Commission.The Trials WG is elaborating a solid and comprehensive strategy to develop the Pan-EU coordinated trials as well as international trials with non-EU partner countries. The 5G Pan-EU Trials Roadmap is addressing several of the 5G Action Plan (5GAP) key elements and aims to develop the necessary synergies between these elements. The main objectives of the Roadmap are to:
Support global European leadership in 5G technology, 5G networks deployment and profitable 5G business.
Validate benefits of 5G to vertical sectors, public sector, businesses and consumers.
Initiate a clear path to successful and timely 5G deployment.
Expand commercial trials and demonstrations as well as national initiatives.
Ultrafast broadband, video content, the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence…: where is the money going?
4th Global 5G Event
Seoul, South Korea- November 22-24
“5G Accelerating The 4th Industrial Revolution”
Political and industrial review on 5G

Get a comprehensive coverage of signal processing methodologies, theories and practices in prevalent and next-generation communication systems and networks.
5G for Automotive
Cologne, Germany – December 12-14
The 5G for Automotive conference is one of the largest event for autonomous driving. Among other things, sessions and workshops will deal with the role of semiconductors in the scope of 5G technology, the potential of 5G from an OEMs perspective.
WCNC’18 is seen as a major dissemination opportunity for 5G PPP phase 2 projects.
Three phase 2 projects will be present @WCNC’18 and call for papers:
ONE-5G, 5G-XCast and 5G-Transformer.
5G-CORAL as complementary 5G project will also be there. One5G and 5G-Xcast are co-organizing a joint workshop on cm-wave and mm-wave based communications for 5G Networks (CmMmW5G). 5G-TRANSFORMER co-organises the First Workshop of COntrol and Management of network slices for VERTicals (COMVERT). At last, 5G-CORAL co-organises the First International Workshop on Edge and Fog Systems for 5G & Beyond (IWEF).
