BEREC set out to consider the feasibility of provisioning coverage information and Quality-of-Service (QoS) aspects of future 5G networks that cater for the needs of verticals. The objective was to provide insights on two key areas:
1.Describe the expected benefits from NRAs’ presentation of coverage information andQoS aspects for use by verticals implementing use cases such as automotive,industrial, environmental monitoring, etc.;
2.Attempt to describe the metrics that are of relevance to the verticals.
The following sets out key observations / insights under the two areas of work outlined above. In addition, BEREC sets out its conclusion and recommendation in light of the practical difficulties of determining the merits of the project.
