5GMED Connected and Automated Mobility and Future Railway Mobile Communication Use Cases in the Mediterranean Cross-Border Corridor

The 5GMED project will demonstrate advanced Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) and Future Railway Mobile Communications System (FRMCS) use cases along the cross-border corridor between Figueres (Spain) and Perpignan (France), enabled by a multi-stakeholder compute and network infrastructure based on 5G and offering support for AI functions, and deployed by MNOs, neutral hosts, and road and rail operators. Several large-scale trials will be conducted to evaluate the capabilities of 5G to meet the requirements of the use cases in the cross-border mobility scenario. In this paper, we present the 5GMED project, its use cases and the proposed 5G network architecture.
