A New Generation of e-Health Systems Powered by 5G
  Standardized 5G systems will be market ready around 2020. What is clear is that 5G will be more than a simple evolution of the current network. Indeed, it will be a catalyst for new products and services by integrating networking, computing and storage resources into a unified infrastructure, becoming the nervous system of cognitive objects and cyber-physical systems. WWRF has devised a series of vertical industry platform (VIPs) for 5G, where important standardization topics can be seeded and cultivated. This white paper has as its scope the requirements of providing effective healthcare using 5G technology.This will be a springboard for further work, including recruitment and use of a panel of experts to take part in a Delphi study to refine these conclusions, becoming a living document.
