Arturo Azcorra from IMDEA Networks / University Carlos III of Madrid explains the European 5G-Crosshaul project of the 5G Infrastructure Public-Private Partnership (5G PPP).
The 5G-Crosshaul project, part of the European H2020 5G Public-Private Partnership (5G PPP) Infrastructure, will define and develop the next generation of integrated fronthaul and backhaul networks that will respond to the needs of the future 5G communications system
The Expert Group of NetWorld 2020, the European Technology Platform for communication networks and services together with the Vision Group of the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) held a joint workshop in Paris last June*, collocated with the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC 2015).
5G NORMA project, part of the 5G Infrastructure Public-Private Partnership (5GPPP) initiative, will define the overall 5G mobile network architecture, including radio and core networks, to meet the demanding 5G multiservice requirements.
5G networks are set to be operational in 2020 and will be the gateway to the age of “intelligent everything”. In addition to increasing workers’ productivity, they will improve their quality of life.
5G connectivity is to become the new lifeblood of the digital economy and society, according to Günther Oettinger. The European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society endorses the presentation of the European 5G vision made by the 5G-Public Private Partnership at the Mobile World Congress 2015.
Arturo Azcorra, a pioneer of internet and network science research in Spain, has been elected chairman of the 5G Expert Group from NetWorld2020, the European Technology Platform (ETP) for communications networks and services. The ultrafast mobile broadband technology of the future, branded as 5G, will be the foundation of the future Internet.
Even though the deployment of 4th generation mobile networks has not yet been completed, operators and handset manufacturers, as well as leading research teams in the field, have launched a series of R&D initiatives to develop the 5th generation of mobile technology, called 5G, intending to commercialize it by 2020.
IMDEA Networks Institute participates in the 5G “ignition-phase” events organized by the European Commission (EC) at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2015 (MWC’15) in Barcelona (2-5 March). The objective is to present the status of EU work on 5G, the ubiquitous ultra-broadband network that will carry the Future Internet, and is expected to withstand data connections 1,000 times heavier than today's.
Communication networks are evolving to keep pace with increasing consumer needs and business demands. We’ve already experienced the progressive jumps from 1G to 4G wireless networks and 5G is looming in the not-too-distant future. But 5G is much more than 4G plus 1. In the manner of an evolutionary leap, 5G technologies and ICT networks bring the global competition for technological leadership to a whole new level. This is a truly wireless environment that will realize the promise of near-instantaneous, zero-distance online connectivity at any time, from anywhere and from almost any device or terminal.
