Supporting the 5G Strategic Deployment Agendas for the EU Corridors

The GUIDE project will coordinate the development of the 5G Strategic Deployment Agendas (SDA) in the area of 5G for CAM and facilitate the CEF Digital 5G Corridors topic future project pipelines based on the evolution of the SDA. This will include the development of technology deployment roadmaps, cooperation models and best-practice regulatory approaches by combining the inputs of the CEF projects with the stakeholder views. The GUIDE project will capture and share the best practices of the 1st round of CEF 5G Corridors study and deployment projects to achieve common approaches leading to a consistent deployment across the EU.

The GUIDE project will also support progress monitoring on the deployment progress of the projects towards their goals and the goals of the CEF Digital 5G Corridors topic as a whole. This support will also be used to assist performance evaluation and to share solutions and support projects cooperation towards consistent and cost-effective implementations across the EU.

Through these actions, the GUIDE project will help to ensure coherence in the operation and collaborative working of the 5G Corridors topic of the CEF Digital program as a whole.

The Guide project is focused on activities within the first period of the CEF Digital work programme for projects running from early 2023 to early 2025. In close cooperation with the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) and the 5G Automotive Association (5G AAA), this action will support the overall stakeholder engagement (especially mobile network operators, operators deploying infrastructure and associated facilities such as tower companies, telecom backhaul operators, road operators, rail infrastructure managers, automotive manufacturers, and mobility service providers) and their networking.

The GUIDE project will provide some of the essential organisation and operational infrastructure that will allow the active CEF 5GCorridors project community to communicate and collaborate smoothly and efficiently, even when the number of running projects in the programme grows large.  The GUIDE project will do this in active collaborative with the other CEF Digital Coordination and support action, 5GINTEGRA, in order to ensure that consistent and complementary approaches to the community support and communications are achieved.
