5GMED: 5G deployment for future mobility in Mediterranean Cross-Border Corridor
The 5GMED project, with a global investment of 16 Mio euros of which 75% is financed by the European Commission, aims to bring a sustainable 5G deployment model for future mobility in the Mediterranean Cross-Border Corridor. The project will be launched in September 2020 and will be implemented until November 2023.
5GMED was officially presented on June 16th at the i2CAT Foundation’s headquarters in Barcelona in a press conference hosted by the Minister for Digital Policy and Public Administration of the Government of Catalonia and President of i2CAT’s Board of Trustees, Mr. Jordi Puigneró.

5GMED will test services on a broad range of technologies beyond 5G, including onboard sensors and Artificial Intelligence (AI), providing advanced connectivity services in a scalable and replicable manner across transport paths. The infrastructure will support a remote driving use case, advanced traffic management, applications and business service continuity in railway, and follow-me infotainment both in highway and railway scenarios.
The use case demonstrations will be carried out in three small scale testing facilities in order to replicate real conditions, based on the outcomes of the tests, a final integration and validation will be carried out in the cross-border section between Figueres and Perpignan. A strategic section in the Trans-European Transport Network since it sustains 55% of the road traffic between the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe and 65% of the rail traffic.
