SPEED-5G Presentations at METIS-II Workshop in Sweden
On 28-29 September 2015, the METIS-II project organised a 5G-PPP cross-project workshop at Ericsson in Kista, Sweden. The workshop was dedicated to scenarios, requirements, performance evaluation, spectrum and RAN design assumptions. SPEED-5G contributed to the workshop discussions very actively.
On 28 September 2015, the first workshop day, Andreas Georgakopoulos (photo on the right) from SPEED-5G partner WINGS presented scenarios, use cases, and requirements of SPEED-5G. He explained that the main objective of the project is to achieve a significantly better exploitation of heterogeneous wireless technologies. The use cases he presented included massive IoT (indoor/outdoor), broadband wireless (indoor/outdoor), reliable communications (indoor/outdoor), and high-speed mobility, like, for example, in vehicles on highways or high-speed trains.
On 29 September, the second workshop day, SPEED-5G project coordinator Óscar Carrasco (left photo) from Sistelbanda presented scenarios and models for 5G performance evaluation in SPEED-5G. He explained that defining a proper validation framework is highly relevant for the 5G-PPP programme, as it allows having a common approach for providing results and mapping them to the defined KPIs.
