5G PPP – Future of Mobile Communication

5G PPP - Future of Mobile Communication
Mobile internet and in particular the wireless network will evolve hundred-fold in next ten to fifteen years. To cope with the changes ETSI Future Mobile Summit discussed how 3GPP systems will ensure future stability as the network copes with an explosive growth in complexity and usage.

With 3GPP providing the evolutionary framework for mobility, via its Releases of new functionality and features, the more radical thinking, at the Summit, came in the form of Research projects and some future focused industry initiatives, such as the WWRF, the METIS Project and the DVB Project.

In his keynote address, Mario Campolargo – of the European Commission – introduced a new initiative on research & innovation that will provide momentum to funded work on research. The 5G Public Private Partnership is being launched as a blueprint for the deployment of 5G, in the years after 2020.

5G Cellular Standard evolution

In summing up the Summit’s main themes, the ETSI CTO, Adrian Scrase identified some certainties; “…traffic will continue to increase, connected devices will increase dramatically over time, new device types will significantly contribute to that increase (e.g., probes, sensors, meters, machines etc) and new sectors will bring new priorities (e.g, critical infrastructures).”

On the concept of 5G, Mr. Scrase reported that ultra-reliable 5G networks should, among other things, enable the tactile internet, the perception of infinite capacity and bring in augmented reality.

Here are all the presentations from ETSI Future Mobile Summit.
