5G and us: A European story

 

What do you want from your 5G? What will be the benefits to you and society? When will you meet 5G?  Much has been said about the transformative potential of 5G over the past few years, but few of us can name any concrete examples of applications that can make use of the capabilities 5G has to offer.

The “5G and us: A European story” report by ETNO provides you with insights on how the 5G technology works in practice by looking at use-cases from a variety of industries: from an ambulance connected to 5G in the UK, to smart helmets in a port area in Italy, a smart city involving 34 ICT companies and a local university in Portugal, or accessible remote mammography exams in Sweden.

The report takes a look at the policy measures with an instrumental role to play in ensuring 5G success in Europe and formulates recommendations for improvement in key areas: spectrum auctions, the cost of network deployment, demand-side targets and sustainability, to name a few.
