InterDigital, a mobile and video technology research and development company, announced its participation in the 5GROWTH project.
Part of the third phase of the H2020 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP) initiative, 5GROWTH is aimed at empowering vertical industries with automated and intelligent 5G solutions.
5GROWTH aims to use field trials to validate and optimize the performance of 5G systems deployed on the premises of vertical industries – including Industry 4.0, transport and energy – using automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven solutions.
InterDigital will contribute to the deployment and validation of 5G technologies for the Industry 4.0 pilot use cases, combining latency-sensitive mission critical automation with bandwidth-intensive video applications over 5G. InterDigital will also contribute software-defined virtualized platforms for distributed edge and fog computing.
Launched in June 2019, 5GROWTH will begin activity with nine field trials in the industry 4.0, transport and energy sectors that will be conducted on four vertical-owned sites located in Spain, Italy and Portugal. 5GROWTH is led by a consortium of 21 partners from seven European countries, they include: global vendors, operators, vertical industries, SMEs and research institutes and universities. The project received a grant of €14.1M from the European Commission.
