Project deliverable Open Access
The 5GCity project lives at the crossroads of a number of different domains, including IoT, smart city, 5G/RAN and virtualization, and as such (and taking also into account the high quality of its industry-led consortium) is well-poised to influence a potentially large number of communities. To achieve this, 5GCity has been developing an ambitious plan to maximize the impact of its results, not only in terms of the partners and municipalities involved in the project, but also the wider industrial and smart city communities.
In particular, 5GCity is taking a three-pronged approach. First, it will seek to influence a number of related standardization fora in a number of different domains such as 5G, IoT and smart city; a considerable number of 5GCity partners are active in such organizations.
Second, given that 90% of the 5GCity’s members are industrial partners, the project’s results and city pilots will provide an important means for those partners to enhance their existing product lines and potentially create new ones. Part of this document is dedicated to describing how the individual partners are planning to exploit the project’s results.
Finally, an increasingly effective way of having impact and potentially influencing standards is through open source releases. Multiple 5GCity partners are active contributors to a number of open source communities and will continue to be throughout the lifetime of the project. Such partners will seek to constantly push 5GCity’s results to the open source community. Along these lines, this document also presents the project’s plans for open source contributions.
