Verticals Cartography

Home » Verticals Cartography

In 2035, when 5G’s full economic benefit should be realised across the globe, a broad range of industries – from transportation to entertainment and education, and everything in between – could produce up to 10.7 trillion euros worth of goods and services enabled by 5G mobile technology. Meanwhile, Europe’s 5G Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) is developing new applications across a diverse set of verticals spanning proofs of concept, prototypes, demonstrations, trials, and pilots in order to validate the functionalities defined for 5G by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) – Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Massive Machine Type Communications, and Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications – so consumers and sector end users can really know what 5G is all about.

How to use the 5G PPP verticals cartography:

The experiments are taking place in Europe between 2018 and 2020. You can view the experiments by sector, country, and ITU functionality by clicking on the boxes on the right. New country locations and tests will be added in the future. Meanwhile, enjoy our 5G PPP showcase.

5G-PHOS: PON-overlaid Dense City Area

5G-PHOS demonstrates a 25 Gb/s PON-overlaid 5G fronthaul targeting dense city areas applications over currently deployed PON facilities. 5G-PHOS will initially carry out a lab-scale demonstration at Orange Lab facilities that will be followed by a field-trial demo at the PON infrastructure of Greek Mobile Network Operator Cosmote.  

In terms of ITU 5G functionalities, 5G-PHOS investigates: 

Smart Cities

5G-MoNArch: 5G Touristic City

Haptic internet, augmented and virtual reality,and public deployment of a 5G network. The touristic city test-bed  demonstrates a selected set of innovations  on the topic of network slicing and elasticity.

5G-MEDIA: Ultra High Definition over Content Delivery Network


Smart phones, tablets and goggles are just some of the devices increasingly used to consume audio-visual content, which is also growing in volume and quality as users ceare and upload more and more content via social networks. 

A reliable and high-quality content-aware network is key to meeting increasing demand, with open standards, interfaces and protocols, potentially to everyone can and pervasive across all areas of the Internet.

5G ESSENCE: Next-Generation integrated in-flight connectivity and entertainment systems

The 5G ESSENCE In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity demonstration tests and validates the multi-tenancy enabled network solution for passenger connectivity and wireless broadband experience. The multi-RAT Cloud-Enabled Small Cells (CESCs) will be implemented as a set of integrated access points to be deployed on-board.
