OTE participated in the 5G Verticals Workshop, in Brussels, in 12-13 February 2019.
This 5G Vertical Users Workshop, as an initiative of a subset of European 3GPP Market Representatives (MRP), aims to establish a collaborative event for strategic dialogue between industries and 3GPP by exchanging on future needs and upcoming standard developments. The workshop as a result, aims to produce a report shared directly to 3GPP Project Coordination Group (PCG) as a mean to stimulate and facilitate greater involvement of the 5G Vertical Users in the 3GPP process.
The agenda for this 5G Vertical Users Workshop therefore focused on: 5G Vertical profiles, needs and expectations; Current 5G activities including 5G Projects and Standardisation activity; 5G Rel.16&17 3GPP Standardisation, and a Draft Report based on the workshop finding.
OTE has got the opportunity to update the status of the 5G ESSENCE use cases and pilots, as well as the actual progress regarding the standardization activities.
