With the 2020 deadline looming, at what stage is the 5G standardisation work? Unlike previous generations of mobile, 5G will feature virtualisation and more software-based technology than ever before, so will 5G support the recent move to embrace open source, and if so, how will ETSI collaborate with the open source community? Also, the vertical markets look to be critically important to 5G, but how does the telecoms industry ensure it meets their needs? The Director General of ETSI discusses the success of the organisation’s 5G summit in Nice.
