5G-DRIVE partner OTE participated in the 5G Verticals Workshop, in Brussels, Belgium, on February 12-13, 2019.
This 5G Vertical Users Workshop, as an initiative of a subset of European 3GPP Market Representatives (MRP), aims to establish a collaborative event for strategic dialogue between industries and 3GPP by exchanging on future needs and upcoming standard developments. The Workshop aims to produce a report shared directly to 3GPP Project Coordination Group (PCG) as a means to stimulate and facilitate greater involvement of the 5G Vertical Users in the 3GPP process.
The agenda for this 5G Vertical Users Workshop focused on: 5G Vertical profiles, needs and expectations; current 5G activities including 5G Projects and Standardisation activity; 5G Release 16 & 17 3GPP Standardisation, and a Draft Report based on the workshop findings.
OTE, as a partner of the 5G-DRIVE project, had the opportunity to present the status of the 5G-DRIVE’s use cases and related pilots, as well as discuss the progress and the overall plan with respect to standardisation activities.
