While 2019 is the year of 5G smartphone and 5G network launches, 5G indeed enables a manifold of innovations in vertical segments and new user experiences that will transform our world and our daily lives. Among the most prominent vertical segments fuelled by 5G are: Industrial IOT, Automotive, and Immersive Media. Autonomous robots on the industrial shop floor, latency-critical factory automation and industrial control stand for the requirements in Industrial IOT. Autonomous driving, remote control of vehicles, and 5G New Radio vehicle-to-everything (NR-V2X) will transform the Automotive segment. Finally, immersive media offered at large Sports events or consumed as Virtual Reality content at home, Cloud gaming, as well as Augmented Reality enable great new experiences and collaboration techniques.
This tutorial has been developed by representatives of Intel’s 5G standardization and prototyping teams and will provide an introduction to 3GPP Release 15/16 for enhanced mobile broadband (NR eMBB), ultra-reliable low latency communication (NR URLLC), NR-V2X, and system aspects involving Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) while explaining how the standard’s capabilities and system aspects interplay for Industrial IOT, Automotive, and Immersive Media.
