​The 5GCHAMPION project aims at the first 5G system proof-of-concept in conjunction with the 2018 Korean Winter Olympics. Key novel 5G building blocks will be developed and implemented into a new architectural approach providing an efficient end-to-end system performance encompassing cutting edge 5G radio-access, core-network and satellite technologies.

5GCHAMPION concept is a system including key building blocks for mmWave access and backhaul network, for sub 6 GHz direct 5G satellite narrowband access, positioning and for a flexible and evolved packet core network managed by SDN interface, to support various 5G use cases and all new and legacy access networks.

In order to bring the 5GCHAMPION concept into a tangible proof-of-concept, in this project we develop a new, integrated, agile system architecture with heterogeneous radio accesses.


​5GCHAMPION receives a financial support from the European Union H2020 Programme (Grant n. 723247) and Korea Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (Grant B0115-16-0001).
