July 15, 2015:  EU project METIS-II to lead the next phase of 5G radio access network research

European Union, July 15th 2015: The recently inaugurated European Union project METIS-II has ushered in the next phase of research on the 5th generation of mobile and wireless communications (5G). 5G is expected to significantly improve current, mainly human-type, wireless communications, and enable a wide range of machine-type communication applications, such as, eHealth, vehicular safety, industry automation and augmented reality. A truly global consortium is gathered and the project will be built upon the success of the first METIS project. The project will enable rapid progress in 5G standardisation by serving as a pre-standards research forum, where consensus on key issues to do with radio aspects of next-generation networks can be reached.
