F5G Update: Emerging Use Cases and Demonstrations

Thursday, 10 March 10:30 – 11:30
Theater II

Session Description:

This session is intended to provide a timely update on the new progresses made by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Industry Specification Group (ISG) on F5G (https://www.etsi.org/committee/f5g). Particularly, the emerging use cases to be released by early 2022 will be described. Among them are: industrial PON, rural broadband, and edge/cloud-based control of industrial robots and automated guided vehicles etc. In addition, proof-of-concept demonstrations of several use cases published in F5G Use Case Release 1, such as cloud virtual reality (Cloud-VR) and fiber-to-the-room (FTTR), will be presented.
