News from July 30, 2019
Large scale trials for Railway, Energy, Media and Factories of the Future are planned. Fraunhofer FOKUS provides the 5G testbed infrastructure based on its 5G Playground which is already used in the 5Genesis and 5G-Vinni infrastructure projects to provide a 5G testbed platform.
The 5G-VICTORI Consortium came together last week for the Project’s Kick-Off Meeting in Berlin. 5G-VICTORI comprises twenty-five partners from eight European countries. The goal of the meeting was to trigger the discussions related to the definition of the use cases, the associated requirements, and to sketch the proposed field trials.
5G-VICTORI is funded by the EU program Horizon 2020 with around 13.5 Mio EUR. It runs over a period of three years and started on 1st of June, 2019. 5G-VICTORI is part of the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP), the joint initiative of the European information and communications industry. The goal of this organization is to specify the requirements for the next generation of communications networks and services. At this stage of 5G development, the 5G-PPP Projects are expected to execute large field trials for testing and verifying the performance of 5G technologies in operational environments.
