5G PPP projects and the automotive @ITS 2016 Glasgow- June 6- June 9
5G PPP projects have an information booth at the 11th European ITS Congress 2016 in Glasgow (Scotland, UK) from 6 to 9 June 2016. This is a major activity for 5G PPP projects since the automotive seems to be the most motivated and mature sector with regards to 5G.
METIS-II, FANTASTIC-5G, mmMAGIC, 5G-Crosshaul, Flex5Gware @ 2nd International Workshop on 5G RAN design Washington DC- December 8
The workshop will provide the opportunity to share and discuss results from the mentioned projects. and other 5G research activities and to elaborate on how the 5G RAN design shall be the best taken forth in the recently started 3GPP standardization.
5G PPP @ 4th CLEEN Workshop: how cloudy and green will mobile networks be? Grenoble (France)- May 30 – June 1
The 4th edition of the workshop will cover common aspects of interest in order to meet the need to study new technological trends in mobile communications. In particular, the collaborating projects are: Flex5Gware, 5G NORMA and Speed-5G. The CLEEN (Cloud Technologies and Energy Efficiency in mobile communications Networks) workshop is organised in conjunction with the 11th edition of CrownCom, the International Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks.
Workshop on Security in Virtualised Networks co-chaired by 5G-Ensure Seoul- June 10
The IEEE International Workshop in Virtualised Networks (Sec-VirtNet 2016) is held along with the 2nd IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarisation (NetSoft 2016). Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies fundamentally change the network architecture as well as the way networks (e.g., mobile or transport networks) will be deployed and operated.

List of whitepapers
METIS-II: 5G RAN Architecture and Functional Design
Published on March 8
This whitepaper summarizes the initial views and considerations of METIS-II on the 5G RAN architecture and functional design. It starts by listing the main service types that are considered for 5G, namely extreme mobile broadband (xMBB), massive machine-type communications (mMTC) and ultra-reliable machine-type communications (uMTC), as well as the five specific use cases towards which METIS-II is performing the 5G RAN design, and which typical represent a mixture of services.
6-100 GHz Channel Modelling for 5G: Measurement and Modelling Plans in mmMAGIC Published on February 2016
This whitepaper presents an overview of the propagation measurement and modelling plans as a first step of the mmMAGIC project. One of the final goals of the project is to provide adequate propagation and channel models in the frequency range 6-100 GHz to be used as inputs for 5G radio communications standardization in 3GPP and ITU.
mmMAGIC Architectural aspects of mmwave radio access integration with 5G ecosystem Published on April 2016
5G PPP – 1st Architecture White Paper To be published in June 2016
The Architecture working group as part of the 5G PPP initiative is working on a white paper with focus on the design of the architecture for the 5G era. A workshop was organised in Brussels in April 2016, where 5G related projects and initiatives were invited to submit inputs to be considered by the WG for inclusion in the white paper. The 5G PPP Architecture WG will publish the first version of the white paper early June and will immediately open a public consultation to collect feedback on that version. The updated verion of the white paper will be published by end of June.
EU and Brazil to work together on 5G mobile technology
Brussels, February 23
The EU and Brazil signed an agreement to develop 5G, the next generation communication networks. The Commission also started work on an action plan to deploy the technology in the EU by 2020. In the future, everybody and everything will use 5G. By 2020, there will be 26 billion connected devices and 70% of people will own a smartphone. 5G will be the backbone of the EU Digital Single Market, industries of the future, modern public services and innovative applications such as connected cars, smart homes or mobile health services.
