Every year, rapidly increasing data consumption is causing congestion in existing spectrum bands and service breakdowns. The fifth generation of mobile internet connectivity (5G) can handle thousands of devices simultaneously, and promises much faster data download and upload speeds, wider coverage and better connections.
The EU-funded 5G-TOURS project aims to demonstrate the 5G network’s ability to support diverse requirements on the same infrastructure at a large scale. The project intends to provide efficient and reliable close-to-commercialisation services for citizens and tourists in three different cities: Athens (smart mobility), Rennes (e-health) and Turin (media and broadcasting). Its results could help to improve the quality of life of people in cities.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 856950
