The “5G City” Project
The “5G City” project focuses on citizens’ needs, maximizing the usefulness of solutions and innovative applications, fully seizing on the opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution, through the efficient and optimized management of frequencies and, more generally, of infrastructural resources.
In 5G cities, technological development and a diversified offering of services, able to interact with citizens and cars, will allow for a significant improvement in quality of life.
Use cases were identified by analysing the strategic role of 5G networks and the related socio-economic impacts expected in Prato and L’Aquila. Hopefully, 5G networks will be an enabling factor in various use cases, to the benefit of quality of life in the two communities, in various sectors, from telemedicine to industry 4.0, city security and the protection of cultural heritage through virtual and augmented reality.
The 5G City Project will develop over a timeline aiming for 2020. In the last year, it will include a commercial testing phase, in order to test innovative services developed by the partners.
An overview of the "use cases" that will be carried out in Prato and L'Aquila follows.
