"New capabilities such as AI/ML integration, reduced capability (RedCap) and non-terrestrial network (NTN) integration have been key to vendor and operator activities so far, with pre-release trials of 5G Advanced starting to take place."


Data coverage

The tracker includes over 110 entries from over 180 actors worldwide, including national governments, operators, vendors and academic organisations. Entries include government policy, R&D programmes, labs, testbeds, R&D partnerships, technological developments and memorandums of understanding. Each entry records information about the actors involved, a summary of the R&D, the region and country, dates of announcements, funding amounts, timelines and any KPIs mentioned.

The document features five sheets.

  • 5G Advanced tracker. This worksheet contains detailed data on 5G Advanced R&D plans and projects.
  • Keyword taxonomy. This sheet contains our categorisations of specific key words.
  • Tech development stages. This sheet explains the keywords used to classify the stages of technology development for projects in the tracker.
  • Glossary. This sheet contains explanations on acronyms used for organisation and technologies.
  • List of all actors. This final sheet outlines all actors mentioned in our tracker.

This tracker also includes filters for easy navigation and a three-tiered taxonomy of key words to allow streamlined sorting of information. It also includes a navigation guide for user ease.
