United Kingdom : EC & 5G PPP Association in deal to form 5G PPP [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Telecom equipment vendor NSN said that European Commission and the 5G PPP Association entered into a contract to make a 5G public-private partnership (PPP). The 5G PPP will develop 5G technology to prepare for the future standardization of the system and components expected to be deployed in the next decade.
Werner Mohr, head of research alliances, NSN, who will chair the 5G PPP Association, said, LTE and its continuous evolution will be sufficient until the end of the decade. However, after 2020 a new generation of technologies will be needed to address market demands. The industry and academia are working together to create a high-performance 5G environment.
NSN carries out research on the flexible use of spectrum and its propagation in new, higher bands, both for centimeter and millimeter wave. And, the company is working on system design for ultra-dense small cell deployments to deliver the high data rates and ultra-low latency to be needed to support future use cases like increased reality and tactile Internet. Other major research areas for NSN are wide area enhancements, including efficient support of machine type communication along with 5G architecture to integrate existing and new technologies. NSN also assesses how 5G may be adapted to such new uses as smart grids, homes or cities.
