“5G-PPP in Review” brochure is out

The 5th Generation Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) Steering Board’s and Technology Board’s recently released publication documents the 5G PPP approach, the work and major achievements delivered, assesses its effectiveness, and looks ahead to how the progress made by 5G PPP can be built upon by the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS-JU), and more broadly through Horizon Europe.

The formation of the 5G-PPP in 2014, as part of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme, set in motion what will be ten years of research into 5G Mobile Telecoms. The work of the projects (including 5G for CCAM automotive projects, the 5G core and 5G CAM projects), working groups (including the 5G4CAM WG) and governance structure of 5G PPP has driven forward the European contribution to the development, standardisation and commercial launch of 5G technology.

The achievements described in the document are just a small sample of the overall strides forward made by the projects during 5G PPP’s duration. A full view of the progress made can be gathered by reading documents produced during the programme, available on the 5G PPP web site, including the annual Progress Monitoring Reports (PMRs), the ‘Trials & Pilots’ brochures, the European 5G Annual Journals, and the many working group white papers. Individual projects’ have also recorded many of their major advancements under the ‘Key Achievements’.

Perhaps the most impressive way to think about the progress made is to compare the starting point of 5G PPP with the advent of the new 6G-IA association, which now has a wide and diverse membership covering large and small businesses, representations from a multitude of industries, SMEs, academia, R&D centres and other industry fora. That membership is feeding into the SNS-JU programme to ensure that projects both build on the work of 5G PPP, and also allow new ideas and methods to be brought
into their research.
