West Midlands 5G (WM5G) are delivering the UK’s first region-wide 5G testbed looking to deliver two objectives:
1) To accelerate the rollout of 5G across the region 2) To test, prove and scale new applications and services.
Together with mobile network operators and all seven local authorities within the West Midlands, we have already helped our region’s towns and cities accelerate access to 5G.
Getting the infrastructure right now will mean businesses and public sector organisations can get involved much sooner, which will help to position the UK as a world leader in 5G technology. To truly harness the revolutionary benefits of 5G, it is vital we get the foundations right and develop a 5G ecosystem that is fit for the future.
During this session, you'll learn:
-- From a range of stakeholders in the region why 5G and connectivity is important
-- What benefits have already been delivered
-- And importantly practical information and advice on how to accelerate the roll-out of 5G
