5G-VICTORI: VertIcal demos over Common large scale field Trials fOr Rail, energy and media Industries

Vertical industries today can only verify use cases in small scales in commercial environments, before investing in large scale deployments. Through ICT-17 projects, 5G infrastructures become available to verticals to test their applications. However, large-scale trials are still not possible. 5G-VICTORI will conduct large scale trials for advanced vertical use case verification focusing on Transportation, Energy, Media and Factories of the Future and cross-vertical use cases. It leverages 5G network technologies developed in 5G-PPP phase 1 and 2 projects 5G-XHaul and 5G-PICTURE, and exploits extensively existing facilities interconnecting main sites of all ICT-17 infrastructures (i.e. 5G-VINNI, 5GENESIS and 5G-EVE), and the 5GUK testbed in a Pan-European Infrastructure.
The project will provide enhancements of existing infrastructures towards integration of a large variety of vertical and cross-vertical use-cases. 5G-VICTORI's platform aims to transform current closed, purposely developed and dedicated infrastructures into open environments where resources and functions are exposed to ICT and vertical industries through common vertical and non-vertical specific repositories. These functions can be accessed, shared on demand and deployed to compose very diverse set of services in a large variety of ecosystems.
5G-VICTORI's uniquely strong consortium brings together major players from ICT including operators, equipment vendors, academic & research organisations and SMEs, main players from vertical industries (including nationwide rail and electricity operators, rail technology vendors, media content delivery players), and a number of SMEs focusing on advanced vertical services.
The University of Bristol contributes to 5G-VICTORI’S use case #1.2 – DIGITAL MOBILITY. The main objective of this use case is to develop a common framework for innovative mobility applications and services. In this use case, it will be demonstrated how the E2E 5GUK platform can be on the fly configured to provide Application 1 (Immersive media services to travellers arriving at Bristol), Application 2 (VR Live streaming application delivered at UNIVBRIS campus during a course), and Application 3 (Future Mobility).
