On the 10th October applications close for the Industrial 5G Testbeds and Trials competition, as companies looking to offer new 5G services and applications - specifically in the manufacturing and logistics sectors - go head-to-head for a share of £14m in Government funding.
According to the overview on the UK5G website: "The aim of these projects is to demonstrate the value of 5G, beyond enhanced mobile broadband, by targeting industrial uses that can help deliver efficiency, productivity, and other benefits in the UK economy, and help the UK lead the development of enterprise applications for 5G."
The 5GTT Programme is making available funding for this competition, subject to the outcome of the upcoming Government Spending Review. And funding will come from the National Productivity Investment Fund, via £200 million allocated to the 5GTT Programme.
