Radio Access and Spectrum innovations for 5G Pre-FIA Workshop - Athens 17 March 2014

5G is the next frontier of innovation for entire mobile industry. The Radio Access Network (RAN) of 5G will have to respond to the increase in traffic volume, by increasing capacity and by improving efficiency in energy, cost and spectrum utilization.
This workshop will look at technology innovations on the ultra-broadband wireless access being developed by European Commission co-funded research projects that combined will contribute to the capacity improvement and low latency required by the next generation of wireless networks. The projects will present intermediate results that are in the "ignition phase" of the 5G European initiative in H2020. The panel will discuss what are the key RAN technology enablers for reinforcement of European industry in mobile broadband systems.

TROPIC is one of the 5G key projects for EC

European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes announces €50 million for research to deliver 5G mobile technology by 2020, with the aim to put Europe back in the lead of the global mobile industry. "I want 5G be pioneered by European industry, based on European research and creating jobs in Europe – and we will put our money where our mouth is", Kroes said. By 2020 worldwide mobile traffic alone will reach a 33 times increase compared to 2010 figures. In this time Internet access will become dominated by wireless devices such as smartphones, tablets, machines and sensors, requiring more efficient and ubiquitous technology to carry the data traffic.
Every sector of the economy is going digital. Every EU business and citizen needs to know they can enjoy easy-to-use, reliable and fast Internet on the move. This new wave of research projects promises to bring cutting-edge ultra-high-speed mobile broadband technology to the daily lives of Europeans.
METIS, 5GNOW, iJOIN, TROPIC, Mobile Cloud Networking, COMBO, MOTO and PHYLAWS are some of the new EU research projects that address the architecture and functionality needs for 5G / beyond 4G networks.
