The Finnish forest was the venue for the 5th 5G-Xcast face-to-face meeting, hosted by Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) in the beautiful and historic city of Turku, Finland.

From the 3rd to the 5th of July, 5G-Xcast partners came back together to track the progress of the seven work packages and prepare the mid-term project review. The latest technical developments to design new 5G multicast and broadcast solutions were presented and discussed in multiple joint and parallel sessions. In addition, as the project is stepping into its second year, the technical achievements and managerial arrangements corresponding to the first year were also summarized and analysed for the mid-term review session, which will take place in a few weeks’ time.

The next face-to-face meeting will take us back to Finland. This time, Helsinki will be the venue of the 6th meeting, which will be hosted by Nokia between the 25th and the 27th of September.
