The new generation of 5G mobile networks is the future of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector - a true technological revolution that will deliver the Internet of Things and is being driven by R&D+i initiatives like '5TONIC', Spain’s leading 5G innovation laboratory.

By 2020, 5G technology will mark a revolution in telecommunications, boosting the development of robotics and the Internet of Things with its faster speeds. Ever-greater numbers of devices will be able to connect and capacity improved with data processing being done while the data is being transported.

5G-CORAL

The 5G-CORAL project aims at delivering a convergent 5G multi-RAT access through an integrated virtualised edge and fog solution that is flexible, scalable, and interoperable with other domains including transport (fronthaul, backhaul), core and clouds. 5G-CORAL is part of the European H2020 ‘5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership’ (5G-PPP).

University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) participates in the seventeenth edition of the Madrid Science Week with more than thirty activities (all free-of-charge) that will offer a first-hand knowledge of the Institution's R&D+i program. IMDEA Networks is collaborating with UC3M in the staging of a multimedia, theatrical and informative show that explores the effects of 5G technology in our everyday lives. The show will held on November 7th in the Auditorium of the UC3M.

The world's seven most industrialized economies (G7) have released a declaration highlighting the transformative role of 5G communication systems in the Next Production Revolution (NPR), also known as Industry 4.0. G7 Ministers see 5G as a key enabler of the highly complex technological demands posed by the digital economy. 

IMDEA Networks and Huawei Technologies have recently launched a joint research project to explore the synergies of two distinctive wireless technologies, which are both key components of the present and future of mobile communications. On the one hand, the project builds on everyday mobile networks such as WiFi and LTE. On the other hand, it integrates state-of-the-art wireless networks operating in the millimeter-wave band, as envisioned for future 5G networks. Their combination is crucial to enable the evolution of mobile networks, one of the most impactful technologies driving change and progress toward the “network society”.

5TONIC partners Telefónica, IMDEA Networks, University Carlos III Madrid, and Cohere Technologies announced today the companies have cooperated in a number of successful trials to test Cohere Technologies’ OTFS waveform, a new radio technology that has been proposed for 5G radio interface in 3GPP. 

The great ambition of the networked society is to connect everything, everywhere, all the time. But the ideal of seamless communications poses fundamental challenges to legacy networks that the new 5G communication networks currently under development need to solve. One of such challenges is supporting the significant growth of traffic demands. Next generation services such as mobile cloud service, gaming, social-networking applications and 3D immersive applications require massive capacity and higher data rates than current 4G networks are unable to sustain.
