1 Naomi Climer Chair – DCMS Future Communications Challenge Group (FCCG) 5G – the bigger pictureNaomi ClimerChair – DCMS Future Communications Challenge Group (FCCG)
2 FCCG role academia, industry and independent advisors, asked by DCMS to provide advice to Government on taking forward policy on 5G technologies, so that Britain maximises its chance to be a world leader in the development of 5G.(NIC role is around the deployment of 5G)

8 Why 5G mattersPart of the evolution in network, mobile and wireless services to deliver significant opportunities for new business models, enhanced lifestyles and increased productivity.Will help meet many societal challenges such as integrated transport or health etc. Supports:exponential increase in mobile data demand and expectationssignificant video communications growththe full realisation of the IoT (internet of things)the varying needs of different vertical industries, such as Creative Industries, Retail, Transport and Health as part of a much broader UK digital economy.4G can do most of this, but not on the required scaleConnectivity supports an estimated 5 to 6% of UK GDP per annum, 5G impact could be £198bn pa by 2030.
9 Why 5G matters to NICCCommon approaches, interfaces and standards needed across industries and countriesHelp to align UK interests around a common set of standardsCollaborative effort required across multiple verticals to enable development of seamless servicesSystem of systems/network of networks – this is about connectivity including 5G, 4G, 3G, fibre, satellite, wifi all working togetherimpression of ubiquitous coverage and unlimited capacity by connecting all networks
11 UK unique advantages R&D – world class reputation Security – trusted GCHQ/CESG brands (and now NCSC)Systems integration/end to end thinking – heritage of creating innovative, cross sector solutionsNational Cyber Security Centre
12 What’s happening elsewhere? US - $400m Advanced Wireless Research initiativeSouth Korea. Clear objectives linked with 2018 Winter Olympics.Japan, leading operator (NTT11) objectives to supply 5G services as part the 2020 Summer Olympics.China - expected to be a leader in IoT. Strong government direction and drivers are visible based on a clear industrial strategy.EU - €700m for R&D with targets for schools, universities, research centres, transport hubs, public services and enterprises. (Commissioner Oettinger says this amount is needed to catch up with US and China). EU activity is around 5GPPP – Horizon2020 funded with much UK company & academic involvementGermany - €80m R&D fund and published strategySome level of activity in many countries5GPPP public private partnership

14 Headline FCCG recommendations 1. Demand generation. Government should focus investment in three areas: i) ICT Research and Development –Optimise spend to provide a stronger technology pipeline, generate demand, create the skills base, standards capability and global linkages.ii) Test Beds and Trials 5G end to end trial by Q Government funding required.iii) Create Steering Group, Standards and Knowledge Dissemination activity for R&D, test beds, trials, SME & Micro engagement and associated Standards work, and ongoing advice on international benchmarking and deployment.All funding to be aligned across Government funding agencies to ensure synchronisation of criteria, objectives and timing.OFCOM international benchmark study coming out Dec 2016
15 Headline FCCG Recommendations 2. Strengthen UK / international Science bridges for collaborative R&D, Test Beds / Trials/ Standards alignment. (Support ETSI 3GPP)3. A “digital first” Government strategy declaration linked to public funded capital projects.4. Each Government Department needs to signal the move towards digital operation through policy and procurement and address common approaches and linkage across these vertical sectors, underpinned by a coherent security strategy.
16 Headline FCCG Recommendations 5. Use 5G test beds and trials to provide coverage alongside roads and rail lines. Link with Smart Cities projects in densely populated areas.6. Policies for investment and deploymentEg sites including backhaul and small cell7. Spectrum strategy and deploymentEarly release is important8. Spectrum and Test Beds
17 What’s next?DCMS has included FCCG submission in proposals to Treasury on the UK digital environmentLooking for engagement of industry, academics and standards bodiesWorking to encourage collaboration across all interested parties
