Purpose of Establishment
Prospectus for Beyond 5G Promotion Consortium
Mobile communication systems are evolving from a communication infrastructure to a lifestyle infrastructure over the course of generations. The fifth-generation mobile communication system (5G), which is being introduced in many countries, is expected to evolve into a social infrastructure that goes beyond the infrastructure of our daily lives, and the next generation, Beyond 5G, is expected to play a central role as the backbone of Society 5.0 by integrating cyberspace with the real world (physical space). It is expected to play a central role as the backbone of Society 5.0.
Society 5.0 will come with a paradigm shift of the entire socio-economy to a knowledge-intensive society, where real-time data will be available to all people safely and without impact on the global environment. In this context, real-time data must be made available to all people safely and without any impact on the global environment.
In order to achieve the early realization of Beyond 5G, which will play a key role in the social infrastructure after the shift, and to strengthen international competitiveness, the "Roundtable Meeting on Beyond 5G Promotion Strategy" held a series of discussions and summarized the future promotion policy for research and development strategy, intellectual property/standardization strategy, and deployment strategy, which was published as the "Beyond 5G Promotion Strategy" in June 2020.
In order to strongly promote this strategy, we must envision the future society beyond the framework of existing fields and organizations, and take immediate actions to achieve it. Therefore, the "Beyond 5G Promotion Consortium" was established as a forum for industry, academia, and government to share information on the latest international trends related to specific initiatives and research and development to be implemented based on each strategy, to discuss how to promote initiatives for the early realization of Beyond 5G, and to disseminate the status of Japan's initiatives related to Beyond 5G internationally. The "Beyond 5G Promotion Consortium" will be established as a forum to share information on Beyond 5G among industry, academia, and government, and to discuss how to promote efforts toward the early realization of Beyond 5G.
