The European Commission is currently co-funding a set of 6 projects to develop the 5G corridor infrastructure across Europe. The aim is to pave the way for Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM).

The 5G Fréjus project is part of the EU feasibility studies, essential to prepare the groundwork for future large-scale 5G infrastructure deployment projects.

The 5G Project

More specifically, 5G Fréjus aim at preparing the deployment of 5G. Moreover, it will assess the effort needed in terms of administrative, legal, and technical constraints.

To fully deploy the transport corridor between Italy and France across the Fréjus rail and highway tunnels, a passive and active infrastructure will be implemented. They will serve the development of digital services.

The specific objective of the study is the sizing along the cross-border section of an adequate fiber network, evaluating synergies in sharing a common passive infrastructure in order to minimize the impact on the operation of the transport corridors.
