5TONIC Lab bags key roles in €50m EU sponsored 5G programme like 5G EVE, 5G-VINNI and 5GENESIS.
The 5TONIC 5G co-creation laboratory in Madrid, together with some of its member companies, has been awarded a vital role in three high-profile EU-sponsored 5G development projects.
The three projects are designed to help innovate and test 5G vertical market applications and services in the end-to-end environment that is a key feature of the 5TONIC facility and will run for three years.
Announcing 5TONIC’s role in the three chosen projects, David Del Val, Chairman 5TONIC and CEO Telefonica R&D said, “To be chosen to participate in these EU vertical market 5G trials is complete vindication of the approach we took when establishing the 5TONIC facility.
The 5TONIC laboratory will be a center for 5G EVE, 5G-VINNI and 5GENESIS projects, which form part of the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.
5G EVE (European Validation platform for Extensive trials) aims to create the foundations for the roll-out of end-to-end 5G neworks in Europe. 5G-EVE supports this transition by offering to vertical industries, and to all 5G PPP Phase 3 projects, facilities to validate their network KPIs and their services.
5G-VINNI (5G Verticals INNovation Infrastructure) looks to accelerate the uptake of 5G in Europe by providing an end-to-end (E2E) facility that validates the performance of new 5G technologies by operating trials of advanced vertical sector services.
5GGENESIS (5th Generation End-to-end Network, Experimentation, System Integration, and Showcasing) will create an integrated end-to-end 5G facility where 5G network KPIs for various 5G use cases can be validated and brought together with a view towards their integration in one united full-stack, end-to-end 5G platform.
The 5TONIC facility was co-founded by Telefonica and IMDEA Networks Institute. Both of the co-founders will be closely involved with the new projects, working alongside other 5TONIC member companies including Ericsson and UC3M.
