The 5GCity Project has been launched!

Accelleran is collaborating in the EU H.2020 (5GPPP phase 2) research & innovation project ‘5GCity’. This project will be developing a 5G distributed cloud & radio platform for municipalities and infrastructure owners acting as 5G neutral hosts.

The project brings together a consortium of key industry, academic and research partners together with municipalities and infrastructures providers. The ultimate goal of 5GCity is to maximise the return on investment for the whole digital market chain (users, application, cloud providers, the municipalities themselves, telecom providers and infrastructure providers).

Developing and applying 5G technologies like network virtualisation (SDN/NFV and C-RAN), edge computing (MEC) and network slicing, Accelleran will be developing and contributing 5G small cells that will be operationally demonstrated in Barcelona (Spain), Bristol (UK) and Lucca (Italy) in their smart city infrastructure pilots.
