The 3rd 5G-ACIA Web Seminar series focuses on testing of Industrial 5G. The first Web Seminar will give an overview on 5G-ACIA’s perspective on testing and explains what 5G-ACIA’s testbed endorsement is all about. In this context, testing types as selected in the White Paper (Selected Testing and Validation Considerations for Industrial Communication with 5G Technologies) are discussed taking a closer look at performance testing as presented in White Paper (Performance Testing of 5G Systems for Industrial Automation) and certification in 5G-ACIA.
The following Web Seminar sessions are dedicated to the 5G-ACIA endorsed testbeds. Following the call for 5G testbeds from Autumn 2020, fourteen 5G-ACIA members and two non-5G-ACIA members collaborated creating seven unique testbeds up to now. Testbed members will present their use case, their 5G solution and – if the testbed is already mature – first results.
Testing in 5G-ACIA – An Overview

The 3rd 5G-ACIA Web Seminar series starts off discussing 5G-ACIA’s perspective on testing of 5G and explains what 5G-ACIA’s testbed endorsement is all about. Early on in its work, 5G-ACIA created a White Paper (Selected Testing and Validation Considerations for Industrial Communication with 5G Technologies) summarizing aspects of 5G testing in industrial applications. Here, testing types were identified, from which the Web Seminar takes a closer look at performance testing (Performance Testing of 5G Systems for Industrial Automation). Also, 5G-ACIA’s view on certification is presented. Putting their testing considerations to practice, 5G-ACIA endorses testbeds since early 2021 aiming to accelerate the adoption of 5G in industrial applications. In the Web Seminar, it is explained which criteria are applied and how 5G-ACIA selects its testbeds.
