The Global5G.org closing project details a transformative 5G future

5G will transform centuries-old industries like manufacturing, healthcare, automotive, among many others and the recently completed Global5G.org project has been analysing some of the trends and mechanisms for guaranteeing the transformative impacts of 5G in Europe in the coming few years.

Global5G.org has been a thirty-month collaboration between various European research and educational institutions, and consultancies under the umbrella of the 5G Public and Private Partnership (5G PPP), with funding from the European Commission. The project was focused on tracking the progress of 5G across diverse vertical industries, mapping rollouts across Europe and supporting standardisation by connecting vertical industries and standards specialists.

Aalto University Staff Scientist, Edward Mutafungwa says ‘The success of 5G from a transformational perspective is contingent on the strong interaction between relevant stakeholders, such as vertical industries, standards organisations, regulators, policymakers and technology developers, with the latter including the cutting-edge 5G research and innovation actions under the 5G-PPP (5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership)’.

The contribution of Aalto University researchers to Global5G.org has included the collaboration with Trust IT in development and analysis of a verticals cartography of experimental trials and pilots by 5G PPP projects conducted over different phases (2018-2022 timeframe).

The verticals cartography highlighted the vertical industries targeted by the experiments, but also includes details on the level of maturity of the tests and 5G functionalities implemented. The online version of the cartography has had significant exposure impact, recently averaging around 50,000 page views month. It is an ongoing activity that will continue to be maintained beyond the Global5G.org by a newly launched project - Full5G.

Furthermore, Aalto University contributed to the study of interventions for eliminating barriers for dense deployment of Small Cells in Europe, which is a key of 5G rollouts delivering on their envisioned performance enhancements. The study was conducted with inputs from stakeholders, including the Small Cells Forum (an industry alliance), noted need for further simplification and harmonisation of rules for deployment and operation of Small Cells across different countries, as the key for achieving the level network densification required for 5G (and beyond) networks.
