The introduction of digital technologies is giving a major boost to societal and economic transformation. In the future, this will enhance our technical capacity to bring forth new and innovative products and services, in areas such as manufacturing, transport, energy, health, education and entertainment.
5G will be a key enabler of this transformation, coping with the different connectivity, storage and processing needs for each of these industry sectors. Therefore, a close interaction of vertical industries and 5G infrastructure stakeholders will be mutually beneficial. A fundamental point will be the validation of 5G technologies in a system-wide context, including multiple use cases, while supporting the requirements of these key vertical sectors.
WWRF is at the heart of this process, with its Vertical Industry Platforms creating a bridge between the ICT and vertical industries, and providing opportunities in its meetings to promote and discuss new trials and testbeds.
