Vertical demos over common large-scale field trials for rail, energy and media industries
June 01, 2019 to May 31, 2022
5G-VICTORI is addressing the well-defined European objective of providing 5G solutions for verticals. This requires developing 5G infrastructures to address a wide range of applications adopting flexible architectures, offering converged services across heterogeneous technology domains with unified software control. The project will provide enhancements of existing infrastructures towards integration of a large variety of vertical and cross-vertical use cases. Fraunhofer FOKUS supplies 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. 5G-VICTORI’s platform aims to transform current closed, purposely developed and dedicated infrastructures into open environments where resources and functions are exposed to ICT and vertical industries through common vertical and non-vertical specific repositories. These functions can be accessed shared on demand and deployed to compose very diverse set of services in a large variety of ecosystems.
5G-VICTORI is funded by the EU program Horizon 2020 with around 13.5 Mio EUR. It 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.
