Korea Republic of : EU, SOUTH KOREA to develop 5G technology [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) With the hopes that the future mobile service will help link the emerging Internet of Things (IoT), the EU and South Korea intend to work closely to develop 5G technology.
A Joint Declaration on Strategic Cooperation in Information Communications Technology (ICT) and 5G, has been inked in Seoul, under which the EU and South Korea will work closely towards a global definition of 5G, which is expected to offer 'Fibre-like' speeds.
It's hoped that as well as offering adequate bandwidth for owners of the iPhone 11S and the HTC One (M13) to download HD films in seconds, 5G will enable connected home services to communicate with smart grids, smart cars and eHealth services.
European Commission vice president Neelie Kroes stated : "5G will become the new lifeblood of the digital economy and digital society once it is established. Both Europe and Korea recognise this. This is the first time ever that public authorities have joined together in this way, with the support of private industry, to push forward the process of standardisation. Today s declaration signals the our commitment to being global digital leaders."
