WASHINGTON, DC — ATIS today announced publication of the 5G Vertical Platform Assessment Report, an analysis of vertical industries and application use cases for how a range of sectors can set 5G capabilities into action. Identifying common platform needs to enable verticals to fully exploit 5G innovation will also advance new opportunities for communications service providers.
“5G adoption brings significant improvements in bandwidth, data rates, latency as well as the ability to connect a vast amount and variety of devices on the network,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “This new ATIS report will help companies in a wide range of sectors better understand and more easily integrate 5G capabilities into their business transformation strategies.”
Vertical industries covered are industrial and manufacturing, connected vehicles, smart cities, public safety, health care, media/entertainment, and education. The 5G-specific use cases within each vertical are underpinned by the characteristics of 5G New Radio infrastructure: Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC) and Massive Machine-Type Communications (mMTC). The report then identifies several common, cross-industry enablement platform needs across the different verticals. These include connection and policy management; network quality and service level agreement (SLA) management; data sharing; data trust; personally identifiable information (PII) and consent for data use; content digital rights management (DRM); location and spatial awareness; and exchange of value.
The findings from this analysis will help the industry turn the requirements identified into specific, marketable enablement platform capabilities. The goal is to enable a common set of 5G vertical enablement platform services that can be used consistently across any vertical industry.
