BRUSSELS, July 4 (Xinhua) -- It is important to understand that 5G mobile will be more than just the next step beyond today's 4G networks, Vice-President of the European Commission Neelie Kroes said on Friday.

"It will also offer totally new possibilities to connect people, and also things -- cars, houses, energy infrastructure. All of them at once, wherever you and they are," said the commissioner.

The EU-funded research projects were based on various technical requirements, including addressing the capacity crunch and finding new ways to use spectrum to ensure citizens and business would be able to benefit from 5G.

According to the EU, the European telecom industry, representing more than 1.7 million direct and indirect jobs in Europe, has been historically in the forefront of mobile technology.
