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 use-case experiments are taking place in Europe between 2018 and 2020, with more projects coming on board in 2019. 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 TRANSFORMER - Live Streaming

The aim is to encompass these services to the FAN ENGAGEMENT trend, which envisions smarter venue services by means of providing targeted and high-quality content and following fans along the journey with contextualized information. This trend also envisions fans as content producers (i.e. to share videos, photos, emotions, opinions, comments, etc.), and captures the explosion of IoT devices by including them as additional content producers. The final goal is to give the fans a more interactive, immersive and participative experience like never before.

5GCity: Mobile Backpack Unit for Real-time Transmission

This vertical application is studying how to provide Quality of Service (QoS) and guaranteed bandwidth allocation to the Mobile Backpack Unit (Real Time Transmission).

These backpacks are used by the Barcelona local broadcaster (BTV) for real-time transmission of content happening within the city. Key to realising the use case is the possibility to configure priority in the connection, maintain a high QoS for video quality, reduce end-to-end latency via 5G network.
