5G Infrastructure Association Adds SES’ Christine Leurquin
[Via Satellite 12-13-2016] The 5G Infrastructure Association has elected Christine Leurquin, vice president of institutional relations and communications at SES, to the association’s board. As part of the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (PPP), the 5G Infrastructure Association’s role is to be a counterpart to the European Union Commission on the private side of the 5G PPP. Its work includes preparing contributions to the dedicated 5G PPP work program in Horizon 2020. It aims to contribute to 5G policy-oriented topics on standards, spectrum and trials, as well as interaction with international partners.
Once deployed, 5G will likely speed further digitalization of the European economy, accommodating the diverse connectivity needs of industrial applications such as high speed, low latency, resilience and ubiquity. 5G networks will serve a broad range of industries, especially the automotive, transportation, healthcare, energy, manufacturing and media and entertainment sectors.
