INSPIRE-5Gplus at Online Workshop on 5G Trials in Europe
On 14 October, INSPIRE-5Gplus coordinator Uwe Herzog from Eurescom presented the INSPIRE-5Gplus project at an online workshop on ”5G Experimentation Facilities and Vertical Trials: Current Status and Future Perspectives”. The workshop attracted almost 100 participants. It was organised by the Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications of the Greek National Centre of Scientific Research “Demokritos” in the framework of 5G PPP infrastructure project 5GENESIS, which they are coordinating, and 5G PPP vertical use case project 5G!Drones. NCSR Demokritos is also a partner in the INSPIRE-5Gplus project.
The main goal of the workshop was to present the recent developments of the 5G experimentation facilities of the three 5G PPP infrastructure projects and the vertical trials by the 5G PPP use case projects. To complete the 5G picture, the workshop also featured presentations by projects under the Horizon 2020 topics ‘Secure Societies’ and ‘5G Long Term Evolution’, showing 5G trials related to first responder teams and discussing future perspectives of 5G.
Uwe Herzog’s presentation was part of the ‘5G Long Term Evolution’ session, which was moderated by Anastasios Kourtis from NCSR Demokritos. In his talk on “Intelligent Security and Pervasive Trust for 5G and Beyond”, which was prepared with the help of Chafika Benzaid from Aalto University, he presented the INSPIRE-5Gplus vision for 5G and beyond security and then explained the technical objectives and activities of INSPIRE-5Gplus for realising this vision.
