Taking a look back at the success stories of 2022, LIST conducted the 5G-PLANET project, leading to the creation of concrete, tangible demonstrators, showing the R&D challenges we face and proving the value of using these advanced communication technologies.
"While our teams are already working on the sixth generation of mobile networks (6G) and thinking about the applications of the next decade, it is crucial not to lose sight of the current generation, i.e. 5G, which is already perceived less clearly by the public and companies than it was in the past. 5G-PLANET is a great example of a project that has led to the creation of concrete, tangible demonstrators, showing the R&D challenges we face and proving the value of using these advanced communication technologies, particularly in the field of mobility." Sébastien FAYE, 6G Technology & Innovation Line Manager
Thanks to the 5G-PLANET project, regular major communication exercises were carried out by LIST throughout the year. Funded by the Luxembourg government’s media, connectivity and digital policy department (SMC), this project has led to major dissemination activities. In particular, it has led to the development of three demonstrators, which are all based on technologies used by LIST in its mobile network research and development activities.
The 5G-PLANET project also made it possible to raise public awareness using the digital twin concept, in other words by recreating a digital copy of part of Luxembourg’s 5G infrastructure, which was then used to demonstrate the potential of 5G in Luxembourg.
Important partnerships have also been formed, in particular with Telindus, which has signed a collaboration agreement to further stimulate the development of business. These initiatives are in line with the digital innovation hub’s overall approach and help to convey a positive message: research and innovation as a means of testing and understanding
