5G stakeholders from across the globe gathered in Rome on 9-10 November to discuss topics of crucial importance for 5G, namely spectrum, standards and deployment plans. Experts from Europe, Korea, Japan, China, USA, Canada, and Brazil presented national, European and international strategies and policy priorities for the next few years with a focus on system architecture, 5G for verticals and multi-lateral collaboration, under the theme: “Enabling the 5G EcoSphere”.
Trust-IT represented 5G-ENSURE, a security flagship project in the European 5G public private partnership (5G PPP) and was responsible for the exhibition stand, as the place to network and seek advice on 5G security and privacy challenges. Chief among the visitors were industry vertical representatives, who need practical advice on the major challenges they are facing in Industry 4.0, and guidance on the most relevant standardisation efforts. Other visitors included representatives from the European Commission, regulatory bodies and peer projects, with lively and fruitful exchanges on collaborative work within the 5G PPP.
The 2-day conference was hosted by the 5G Infrastructure Association and co-organised by the 5G Public Private Partnership (5G PPP, Europe), IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group (China), the Fifth Generation Mobile Communications Promotion Forum (5GMF, Japan), 5G Forum (South Korea) and 5G Americas (Americas).
