TUT10: 5G City – New Vertical Use Cases Enabled by 5G


5G stands for 5th generation cellular. What were the previous generations like? With 2G, I got off the plane, I called home saying that the flight had gone well; with 3G I bought a Nikkei stock from the beach, 4G allowed to watch a movie on the train. 5G will allow a massive internet of things: sensors, appliances, drones or robots connect to a telecommunications network and communicate with each other and with humans. So, there will be machine to machine, machine to human, and, of course, human-to-human communication, that is, the traditional one between two people. The tutorial describes an ideal city where 5G is deployed, innovative, and thematically diverse digital services requiring 5G capabilities and performance in the vertical domains of Factories of the Future, Smart Energy, Smart Cities, Smart Ports, and Media & Entertainment are going is in a pre-commercial phase. The process also comprehends the validation of technological performances of 5G technology in successfully serving them, as well as the business models and potential of these, use cases before commercial deployment.
