Ubiwhere is one of the Portuguese companies attending the EuCNC|6G Summit 2022


Between the 7th and the 9th of June, Ubiwhere is one of the national companies to attend the EuCNC & 6G Summit 2022. The EuCNC & 6G Summit 2022 is a hybrid conference and focuses on aspects of 5G and 6G communication systems and networks with the theme "Connectivity for a sustainable world". This participation of the technological from Aveiro focuses on presenting research and development projects from European programs.

The EuCNC & 6G Summit 2022 event is based on two conferences in the field of telecommunications: EuCNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications), supported by the European Commission, and the 6G Summit, originating from the 6G Flagship programme in Finland, one of the first in its field. The conference focuses on all aspects of telecommunications, from 5G deployment and the exploitation of IoT mobile communications networks and systems to 6G, including experimentation and its applications and services. This initiative brings together researchers from world-renowned companies to present and discuss their latest results in the framework of research projects from EU R&I programmes. Ubiwhere is one of these companies and is present at the event to promote its innovative digital solutions for smart cities.

Special Sessions will be held during the event. One of them has the theme NetApps for Verticals. This session, which takes place on the 8th of June, aims to bring together all stakeholders in the NetApps’ theme, discuss their experiences to date and pave the way for NetApps in 6G to cover all domains. Ubiwhere is one of the intervening entities in this session, where it will present the Smart5Grid project. The Smart5Grid project stands out for its innovation and for including fundamental functions of modern smart grids, such as the automatic detection of faults in the power distribution network and the remote inspection of automatically delimited work areas at the distribution level, thus helping power grid operators and other stakeholders of the energy sector.

In addition, the Smart5Grid project aims to identify the high-level requirements for a communication network that will enable the construction of innovative and high-performance smart grids. It seeks to revolutionise the energy industry through the experimental and open deployment of 5G by supporting, integrating, testing and validating new and existing 5G services and third-party NetApps, such as SMEs and professional developers. In addition, to provide companies with the opportunity to accelerate their growth in the high-impact energy vertical, Smart5Grid provides a NetApps open access repository, procurement support and third-party assistance through a clear and trustworthy experimentation roadmap.

The session discusses how NetApps empower various verticals like the energy sector for 5G solutions and reinforces the fact that 5G is a technology communication platform as different actors from various domains share interaction with a network owner. This session can capture community buy-in on the level of interaction and trust that NetApps should support, how services are provided to verticals, and how NetApps simplify the implementation and deployment of large-scale vertical systems.
