New R&D lab for the trade fair and tourism sector

The aim of a new 5G prototype R&D lab is to identify future opportunities for 5G technology in the trade fair and tourism sector, the Spain-based IMDEA Networks Institute reports. It is a research hub set to develop solutions, features, and new services using 5G technology to be displayed at FITUR 2018.

The research team for the project is comprised of 10 students from various engineering backgrounds.
IFEMA's decision to implement this innovative project aimed at identifying, creating, and launching value-added use cases powered by 5G across industries is in line with IFEMA's role as one of the main trade fair operators. Also, its leadership role within the tourism sector is reflected in organizing the International Tourism Fair in Spain, FITUR. FITUR 2018 will enable research and development of new services in numerous facets of the tourism and trade fair sector that use Cloud, Big Data, AI and 5G technologies to create limitless user experience before, during, and after attending IFEMA's trade fairs.

In fact, currently, there are large international working groups focused on defining use cases and solutions that foment digital innovation using 5G technology and looking at their effect on the Manufacturing, Automation, Transportation, eHealth and Security sectors, among others. 5G products are set for widespread implementation from 2021 onwards.
