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.
