Two more companies have joined the specialist 5G mobile research and innovation laboratory in Spain called 5TONIC.  Altran and Red Hat are the latest companies to become members of the 5TONIC initiative joining existing companies such as Telefónica, Intel and Ericsson. 

Don’t worry, 5TONIC has not branched out into fashion design.  However, one test this laboratory of 5G excellence co-founded and hosted by IMDEA Networks is running in its research premises involves a partnership with Madrid’s emergency services team to put smart sensors into a tee-shirt that could then monitor the vital signs of people suffering from known, life-threatening, conditions. 

Arturo Azcorra, the vice-president of the 5TONIC Research and Innovation Laboratory in Madrid, has been spreading the word internationally about the benefits and opportunities created by 5G mobile networks.

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and Ericsson have launched a Master’s in NFV and SDN technologies for 5G networks. This program, which will be taught at the UC3M Madrid-Puerta de Toledo campus and the Ericsson Auditorium in Madrid, is the product of a long-standing collaboration between both entities in the area of education and research.
