5GDRIVE has joined the 5G Core Summit 2020 Event!

The 5G Core Summit 2020 Event explored the evolution of 5G networks to support next-generation services across the globe, digging deep into how those at the forefront of the industry are preparing for this shift to 5G and, what is needed to capitalise on the 5G opportunity. This annual event intended to “bring together” the technologists and innovators from across the 5G ecosystem to analyse how networks can help deliver added-value services to their customers.

This virtual event took place on the 2nd to 4th of November 2020.

5G-DRIVE had a strong presence by participating in the “5G CORE REQUIREMENTS, ROLLOUTS AND USE-CASES” Special Session, by giving a multi-speaker presentation, entitled as “EU – China 5G Trial Cooperation”.

In particular, OTE has organised a series of presentations about the project working together with VTT, Dynniq, the University of Surrey and China Mobile Research Institute. The presentations have covered: (i) an overall approach of 5G-DRIVE & trial sites; (ii) description of and discussion about the eMBB use cases, and; (iii) description of and discussion about the V2X use cases

The representatives from the 5G-DRIVE project were: Alexandros Kostopoulos (Hellenic Telecommunications Organization S.A. – OTE), Yuanri Xing and Jianhua Liu (China Mobile Research Institute), Na Yi (University of Surrey), Tao Chen (VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland), and Xiaoyun Zhang (Dynniq).
