Event Description

The 5GSC Capacity Building Session 1, titled "5G Edge Cloud Integration," will commence with a welcome and introduction by Frédéric Pujol, Team Leader of the 5GSC Support Platform. 

Subsequently, participants will have the opportunity to gain insights from Dimitri Jungblut, the project coordinator for the 5GMEC4EU activities at Detecon. The 5GMEC4EU project stands at the forefront of enhancing the deployment of 5G infrastructures across Europe and advocating for the integration of multi-access edge computing (MEC) facilities along crucial transportation corridors and within community spheres. In his presentation, Mr. Jungblut will provide a comprehensive overview of edge cloud, its significance, and the demand for low latency.

Following this, we will delve into presentations from two projects funded in Call 2, shedding light on the benefits of edge cloud for 5GSC. 

The first project, SmartPortPloce, aims to enhance the level and quality of public services provided by the Port of Ploce Authority, through the deployment of a dedicated private 5G network in the port area. Mr. Robert Perenić, Business Development and Sales Manager at Markoja d.o.o., will present this project. 

The second project, ED5GE, aims to deploy a 5G edge network infrastructure with the latest features such as network slicing and network-based positioning to provide leading edge computing connectivity to enable low-latency, reliable and IoT connected applications and use cases for public authorities in four Smart Community areas.

Both presentations will elucidate the project's objectives, the advantages edge cloud brings, and how these benefits can be replicated in other contexts, applications, and countries.

Additionally, we will hear from a European edge cloud technology provider (to be confirmed), followed by a Q&A session
