• It is present in 5G FORUM, the first meeting point to dynamise technology and services on the fifth generation of mobile telephony.

  • Cellnex is a reference in several European projects for the development of 5G technology

  • The 5G is key to the development of the Internet of Things (IoT), the autonomous vehicle, industry 4.0, e-health and smart cities.

Cellnex participates next April 25th and 26th in the 5G FORUM, the first multidisciplinary meeting about 5G technology held in Spain. During two full days that will take place in the Digital Content Hub of Malaga, the event will emphasize the different applications of 5G and will show a panoramic view of the advances of this technology.

The leading companies in their development and implementation will be able to exchange knowledge in this field, share experiences and present, also with real-time demonstrations, their latest advances.

Óscar Pallarols, Global Commercial Director of Cellnex Telecom, will participate in a session that will offer the vision of a neutral telecommunications infrastructure operator in the development of multi-operator 5G networks.

Today’s mobile communications ecosystem will experience an unprecedented revolution with the advent of 5G, providing better quality connectivity, faster and able to handle unprecedented volumes of data. This will require greater network density, greater network capillarity and minimal latency. The current level of consumption per user will be multiplied by between 4 and 5 times in 2020, with multimedia content being the main driving force behind this increase in traffic.

Cellnex Telecom, Europe’s leading wireless telecommunications infrastructure operator, leads the deployment of 5G-ready networks thanks to its extensive presence in Europe, with more than 27,000 sites – including small cells and Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) – in six European countries: Spain, Italy, Holland, France, United Kingdom and Switzerland.

The company offers multi-operator mobile connectivity solutions to respond to the current demand for coverage in areas with a high concentration of users, such as football stadiums, shopping malls or urban centers, among others. Among the examples of such spaces, Cellnex has equipped for example the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium in Madrid and the football stadiums of San Siro in Milan and Juventus in Turin, the subways of Milan, Genoa and Brescia, the airport of Milan-Malpensa, high-speed tunnels and the historic center of Milan.

DAS and small cells already enable quality mobile broadband connectivity and provide a response in environments where service saturation has hitherto occurred due to high demand.

The networks deployed by Cellnex Telecom ensure that all mobile operators can offer their broadband connectivity services in optimal coverage conditions and are key to the development of the Internet of Things (IoT)the autonomous vehicle, applications in the health sectorindustry 4.0 and smart cities. In addition, it is scalable and therefore ready to respond to increased demand for data traffic in the future.

Cellnex is working on the development of several European projects that prepare the deployment of 5G networks and services:

  • 5G-City: a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme which aims to evaluate 5G technologies through very specific pilot projects in the European cities of Barcelona, Bristol and Lucca. The idea is to validate different use cases provided by a neutral operator.
  • Veo5G: project coordinated by Cellnex and financed by CDTI, which aims to provide the bases to a neutral operator based on providing 5G infrastructure to third parties.
  • 5GON: project funded by the Generalitat de Catalunya with the aim of developing a multi-operator 5G solution to validate services in the field of Neutral Operator.
  • RESISTO: European project H2020 which aims to protect critical telecommunications infrastructures from the point of view of prevention, detection, mitigation and response.
  • V2XArch: project funded by the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda for the design of a complete platform of connected autonomous vehicle, including a field validation trial.
  • FLEXNET: European project Celtic-Plus, coordinated by Cellnex and financed by CDTI, oriented to the field of surveillance and emergencies.
  • LEAN: European project Celtic-Plus and funded by the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda which aims to use 5G technologies to provide broadband Internet access in rural areas of emerging countries.
