Stuttgart, August 2017 – Thirteen leading telecommunications innovators have joined forces to advance the development of new radio technologies for 5G (5G New Radio – 5G NR) driven by growing interest in mobile 5G applications based on fully standardized technology. The European research project ONE5G* 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 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.
In a nutshell, the two-year project is
“ONE5G holds a key role in advancing 5G NR towards its goal of supporting a multitude of vertical services and boosting capacity anytime and anywhere. Special attention will be paid to cost-efficient roll-outs and operations in dense urban areas as well as sparsely populated areas, building upon the initial considerations of 3GPP”, says Frank Schaich, (Dr.-Ing.) Nokia Bell Labs, coordinator of the project.
Background on Horizon 2020
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market. Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative securing Europe’s global competitiveness. * ONE5G stands for E2E-aware Optimizations and advancements for the Network Edge of 5G New Radio
