5G for verticals: from large scale trials to adoption, driving economic value in Europe



It takes 10 years for a new mobile technology to become commercially available. Research, standardization, trials for validation, network deployment are needed steps to bring to market a new generation of mobile technology. 5G was not an exception. In Europe, the 5G Public-Private Partnership (5GPPP) incubated 5G, from research to trials. Then industrial players brought it to market making 5G technology the fastest mobile technology for adoption worldwide. Currently, the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS-JU) is playing a similar role in what concerns R&D activities towards the definition of 6G technologies.

This co creation event will share 5GPPP and SNS JU experience in developing mobile technologies. 6G-IA members will share results on trials to validate vertical uses cases, while industrial players will share their experience to bring 5G to real world.

A view on the impact of 5G in the real-world economies will complete the session and trigger a panel discussion.
