5G Infrastructure PPP Trials and Pilots Summary Brochure 2024

The 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (PPP) Programme comprised of 93 projects that were organized in three distinctive phases, namely, specification, development, and realization of trials and pilots (T&P). As of March 2024, nearly all PPP projects have concluded their activities, with only 8 Phase 3 projects still on-going. The 5G PPP projects generated outstanding results and achieved a large impact, as it has been regularly highlighted in the various documents elaborated by the 5G Infrastructure PPP and the 5G-IA (e.g., whitepapers, reports, brochures, roadmaps), as well as in the corresponding project websites. Collectively, 5G Infrastructure PPP projects created a portfolio of advanced European telecommunication solutions. They also ensured a large momentum and dynamism for the actual trials of these solutions, as well as the further development of 5G systems on the road towards 6G networks, including other projects being funded by the 6G Smart Networks and Services (SNS) Joint Undertaking (JU).

Specifically, the Phase 2 and Phase 3 projects were aimed to extensively validate and conduct T&Ps of 5G technology in many vertical sectors, this including automotive, industry, media & entertainment, public safety, health, energy, smart cities, transport & Logistics among others. In this respect, a collection of four “5G Infrastructure PPP – Trials & Pilots” brochures were released in September 2019, December 2020, August 2021 and November 2023. They portrayed 40 of the most impactful Phase 2 and Phase 3 T&Ps. Following open calls addressed to 5G Infrastructure PPP projects, a panel of more than 15 experts selected the 10 T&Ps to be included in each brochure. The evaluation criteria included impact on 5G network definition, achieved KPIs, technology and market readiness Levels, societal impact, 5G empowerment, to name a few.

This Summary  Trials & Pilots Summary Brochure presents a synthesis of the vast amount of work carried out by the portfolio of Phase 2 and Phase 3 5G Infrastructure PPP projects. Section 1 presents a high-level view of the achievements of the project portfolio, this including key figures such as the number of use cases addressed per call or year, or their geographical distribution for the whole duration of the programme. This analysis follows from the data gathered in Section 2. The latter includes a number of tables with the names of the T&Ps and use cases, vertical sectors addressed, locations and dates. This information is fully synchronized with that in the PPP Verticals Cartography. It is worth noting that this summary brochure focuses only on large-scale trials and pilots (i.e. TRLs 5-6-7). Hence, it does not include information on the realization of proofs-of-concept, prototypes and demonstrators. Alternatively, the interested reader is referred to the 5G Infrastructure PPP Verticals Cartography for further information on them (https://verticals-cartography.5g-ppp.eu).

We are indebted to all PPP projects and their technical managers and deputies (listed in Section 3 ahead) for their achievements and contributions towards the realization of the challenging goals of the 5G Infrastructure PPP programme. We also warmly thank them for their support in the elaboration of this summary brochure. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading this brochure as much as we did while putting it together.
