5G trials for vertical industries

Thursday, 20 June 2019, 14:00-15:30, room to be defined

Session Chair:
  • Massimo Bertoncini (Engineering Ingegneria Informatica, Italy)
  • Giampaolo Fiorentino (Engineering Ingegneria Informatica, Italy)
  • Filippo Rebecchi (Thales, France)
  • Maria Rita Spada (Wind Tre, Italy)

The “5G trials for vertical industries” special session is jointly organised by a group of active 5G PPP projects working towards the realization and validation of vertical applications enabled by 5G technologies, including NRG-5 (www.nrg5.eu), 5GCity (www.5gcity.eu), 5G-MEDIA (www.5gmedia.eu), and 5G Essence (www.5g-essence-h2020.eu). The workshop targets vertical industries such as Energy, Media, Smart City, and Public Safety.
As most of 5G PPP phase 2 projects will reach their end in 2019, the special session represents an outstanding opportunity to share experiences on planning and execution of real world validation activities, examine the set of addressed validation metrics (KPIs) together with their relationship with the associated vertical requirements, and illustrate preliminary results and lessons learned.
The special session will serve as a privileged venue for all the 5G PPP projects that are entering the technology validation phase, including those providing platforms (ICT-17) and trial activities (ICT-19), to cross-fertilize, exchange best practices for trial and validation activities taking into account the selected 5G PPP KPIs, fostering also future collaborations between partners of different projects and vertical industries.
