The working groups are composed of individuals from the member companies organizations and every working group has a Chair and a Vice-Chair. Within the working group, the technical topics are dealt based on the planning and decicions of the plenary.
Discusses potential use cases and requirements and defines a common body of terminology.
Identifies and articulate specific spectrum needs of industrial 5G networks and explores new operator models, for example for operating private or neutral host 5G networks within a plant or factory.
Considers the overall architecture of future 5G-enabled industrial connectivity infrastructures. This includes integration concepts and migration paths, the evaluation of key technologies emerging
from 5G standardization bodies.
Takes care of the interaction with other initiatives and organizations
by establishing liaison activities and initiating suitable promotional measures.
