In 2020, the commercial roll out of this new technology will start
A couple of days ago, a first overview presentation of the project 5G-VICTORI coordinated by IHP – Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics was given on 21.06.2019 in Valencia. The Project Coordinator, Dr. Jesús Gutiérrez, explained the technical goals and the ambitious large scale trials for technology- and use case verification at the big international conference EuCNC 2019, supported by the European Commission.
After a series of successful projects and developments, the goal of this new project is to verify the functionality of 5G technologies in large field trials taking place in different sites across Europe. The main industry sectors targeted in such trials include Transportation, Energy, Media, and Factories of the Future.
The project partners include industrial companies, research institutes and universities from eight European countries.
5G mobile networks are taking shape and will soon be available to everyone. In 2020, the commercial roll out of this new technology will start. It will enable high-speed connectivity from everywhere, connecting large numbers of small sensors, control production lines in large factories, support autonomous driving and allow E-health applications, to name just a few.
With respect to 4G, many parameters must be improved for future 5G networks in order to meet the demand for broadband communication, ultra reliable communications and large sensor networks. The planned field trials will verify the efficiency of the technologies developed in earlier research projects.
“Many partners from academia industries and perspective users work closely together in our project. This helps us to throughly verify to which extend the demands of potential customers can be met. 5G-VICTORI will help to ensure that every smart phone owner can rely on an uninterrupted network connection with a high data rate,” says Dr. Jesús Gutiérrez, the 5G-VICTORI Project Coordinator.
New powerful cost-effective networks are necessary to connect the 5G base stations with the core network of the telecommunication providers. IHP contributes wireless mmWave links to facilitate the connectitivity in the so-called transport network.
Prof. Grass, Group Leader Wireless Broadband Communications at IHP explains, “5G-VICTORI brings together many partners who already have extensive expertise in developing and deploying 5G-technology. Together with potential users we are able to implement realistic use-cases and scenarios for testing this technology. Our field trials in Berlin (GER), at several sites in France (FR), Romania (RO), Patras (GR) and Bristol (GB) will generate valuable data for optimising the technology and to run exciting services on this powerful new network infrastructure.”
The project 5G-VICTORI is part of the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP). The joint initiative of the European information and communications industry aims, firstly, specifying requirements for the next generation of communications networks and services.
Secondly, based on the requirements technical solutions are investigated and tested. And, thirdly, large field trials, are perfomed for testing and verifying the performance. The project 5G-VICTORI is funded by the EU program Horizon 2020 with around 13.5 Mio EUR. It runs over a period of three years and started on 1st of June, 2019.

A very special kind of light is emitted by tungsten diselenide layers. The reason for this has been unclear. Now an explanation has been found at TU Wien (Vienna)
It is an exotic phenomenon that nobody was able to explain for years: when energy is supplied to a thin layer of the material tungsten diselenide, it begins to...
Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols.
The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between radiation and matter. Light strikes particles...
Particles that are mere nanometers in size are at the forefront of scientific research today. They come in many different shapes: rods, spheres, cubes, vesicles, S-shaped worms and even donut-like rings. What makes them worthy of scientific study is that, being so tiny, they exhibit quantum mechanical properties not possible with larger objects.

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.
The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...
Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...
