Wednesday 24 May 2017 | 13:46 CET | News

The 5G Infrastructure Association (5G-IA), the organisation representing the private side of the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (PPP), has announced the release of version 1.0 of the “5G Pan-European Trials Roadmap” by the 5G Trials Working Group. The aim of the roadmap is to address several key elements of the European Commission’s 5G Action Plan, including the need to support  global European leadership in 5G technology, validate benefits of 5G to vertical sectors, public sector, businesses and consumers, initiate a clear path to successful and timely 5G deployment, and expand commercial trials and demonstrations as well as national initiatives. The roadmap has four pillars (5G Private Trials, 5G Vertical Pilots, 5G for UEFA EURO 2020 and 5G Trials Cities) and refers to vertical industry sectors of strategic importance, including automotive, e-health, public safety, media and entertainment.

5G-IA added that the 5G IA Trials WG has developed a solid and comprehensive strategy for Pan-European coordinated trials as well as international trials with non-EU partner countries and that the roadmap was being issued to coincide with the third Global 5G Event in Tokyo. An updated version of the roadmap is expected to be released by the end of 2017.
