Abstract 1 (Day 1, Track 2, Session 4)
In Search Of Value And Synergies With 5G-SOLUTIONS
The EU 5GPPP ICT-19 project 5G Solutions for European Citizens aims to prove and validate that the 5G capabilities enable forward-looking services to prominent industry verticals, with significant improvement over 4G, thus bringing the 5G vision closer to realisation. In this talk special attention is put at the Smart Port use case from two perspectives. On one hand, the needs of the vertical enterprise must be explored and understood systematically in order to assess the potential business value, and on the other hand, the network service provider need to explore how synergies across use cases can be achieved.
