5G Everywhere at MWC

March 1, 2017
Our participation at the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, has demonstrated the key role that 3GPP is playing in the industry’s plans for a new type of network – that will deliver ever more stunning user experiences, but will also define a new type of internet, empowering connectivity across all kinds of communities.

3GPP Presentation at MWC:

Dino Flore, the RAN Chairman, presented on LTE evolution and 5G, focusing on diverse Release 14 topics (Offload to unlicensed spectrum, Cellular IoT, LTE-based V2X, Low latency LTE…) and on the 3GPP 5G submission for the ITU’s IMT-2020 call for 5G systems. Dino also presented at MWC in his new role, as Director General of the 5GAA - the newly formed Association created to connect the telecom and vehicle manufacturers (Get Dino’s 5GAA presentation…here).

3GPP Partners' Press Events:

At their promotional event on Tuesday, the NGMN revealed its work-programme and objective to encourage alignment on solutions to avoid fragmentation in the market, particularly through collaboration for assessing and testing 5G technology.

New 3GPP Market Partner – The 5G Infrastructure Association (5G-IA) - also held their press event at MWC, delivering a strong message of support for technologies that will achieve the ‘Olympian objective’ of delivering 5G in hospitals and in cities - as well as the headline grabbing sporting events that catch the public’s attention. 

The 3GPP leaders and ETSI also attended a variety of Member meetings during the week, catching the news first hand on how the standards for both LTE Pro and future 5G are being [or will soon be] implemented.
