Towards tomorrow’s 5G converged networks

Compelling use-cases, and the possibilities offered by converged networks, have been identified and are outlined in a recently conducted industry study led by the University of Surrey on behalf of Horizons 5G.

The results of this study would be the subject of an event held on 4th October 2018, which also identified additional input and participation needed to take this work to the next phase, and experimentation to explain how the technology could work as a converged solution. This needed to be undertaken in step with business so that commercially viable opportunities can be explored and new business models created.

The purpose of the event was to:

  • Highlight the key findings from the Study
  • Demonstrate the potential new sources of value to industry
  • Influence government thinking on its UK Digital strategy
  • Define and gain public funding for experimentation

Key outputs included:

  • Secure investments into Horizons 5G to create an influential business hub
  • Identify a programme of activity to plan, fund and commence the next phase.
  • Collaboratively, draft up pre-application strawman to fund experimentation

The aim of the event was to inform of the overall mission of a recently formed partnership called Horizons 5G. The event was to focus on the outcomes of a use case study performed by the University of Surrey on behalf of the Horizons 5G partnership.
