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.

Physicists at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg report the first result of the new Alphatrap experiment. They measured the bound-electron g-factor of highly charged (boron-like) argon ions with unprecedented precision of 9 digits. In comparison with a new highly accurate quantum electrodynamic calculation they found an excellent agreement on a level of 7 digits. This paves the way for sensitive tests of QED in strong fields like precision measurements of the fine structure constant α as well as the detection of possible signatures of new physics.

Quantum electrodynamics (QED) describes the interaction of charged particles with electromagnetic fields and is the most precisely tested physical theory. It...
For the first time ever, experimental physicists have been able to influence the magnetic moment of materials in sync with their electronic properties. The coupled optical and magnetic excitation within one femtosecond corresponds to an acceleration by a factor of 200 and is the fastest magnetic phenomenon that has ever been observed.
Electronic properties of materials can be directly influenced via light absorption in under a femtosecond (10-15 seconds), which is regarded as the limit of...
From June 25th to 27th 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau (Germany) will be presenting a new solution for acoustic quality inspection allowing contact-free, non-destructive testing of manufactured parts and components. The method which has reached Technology Readiness Level 6 already, is currently being successfully tested in practical use together with a number of industrial partners.
Reducing machine downtime, manufacturing defects, and excessive scrap
The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. At LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be demonstrating how well bi-directional sensor technology can already be used for Laser Material Deposition (LMD) in combination with commercial optics at booth A2.431.
Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. In particular, its »bd-1«...
