At the first IEEE 5G World Forum, that took place on 9-11 July 2018 in Santa Clara, CA, USA, the 5G Infrastructure Association (5G IA) and the 5G PPP played a key role in co-organizing the Worldwide 5G Industry Fora Session, and in presenting three Phase 2 Projects, showing demos and contents.

5G IA and IEEE 5G Initiative held a one day Worldwide 5G Industry Fora Session on Monday 9th July – 5G Trends and Collaborations: Regional Visions and Inter-Regional Cooperation Activities – that gathered 12 high-level speakers and panelists representing major regions and 5G Industry Associations around the world (North America, Europe, Brazil, China, India, Japan, Taiwan), including a keynote from Susan Miller, 3GPP-PCG Chair and CEO, ATIS. The European 5G Annual Journal 2018 was distributed at this occasion, meeting great success.

NGPaaS Project (Next Generation Platform as a Service) showed demos at their Exhibition Booth and organized a Workshop on “5G Cloud Native Design”. , illustrated by the 5G PPP just published White Paper ‘From Webscale to Telco, the Cloud Native Journey’


Bessem Sayadi, NGPaaS Project Coordinator at Nokia Bell Labs, argues:” We must ensure ascending compatibility with the cloud environment in order to design a cloud-native 5G system and benefit from the best technologies from the cloud industry, essentially today the open source community, including micro-services, the de-facto cloud industrial standard, and more generally the service based architecture, and the most crucial technical assets from 5G PPP Phase 1 and Phase 2 projects”.
