The workshop will be jointly organized by the flagship projects ONE5G & 5GXCast within the European Union 5G- PPP Phase II framework.
ONE5G has focused on key technology components for 5G New Radio (NR) Advanced, specifically extensions that support the cost-efficient provision of services both in Megacities and in Underserved Areas. This encompasses PHY/MAC link and multi-link advancements as well as network and user experienced E2E performance optimization and context awareness specifically for the vertical sector. Broadcast and Multicast Communication centric 5G-Xcast project aims at developing media delivery solutions while taking into account the more extensive use cases of 5G including services to vehicles, public safety and health, IoT etc. to ensure they dovetail together.
Essentially, this workshop will be a herald to aggregate technical components, latest research results from EU flagship projects that will pave the way towards new 5G Advanced standard. In addition, the workshop features sessions for local operators, service providers, local 5G industry and startup scene as well as academia of the IEEE GLOBECOM hosting city (and the MENA region) to prepare for 5G Advanced.
