Worcestershire leading the way on 5G development
The Worcestershire 5G Consortium has won Most Commercially Viable Use Case at the inaugural 5G Realised ‘Use Case Awards’.
The Consortium, led by Worcestershire County Council and the Worcestershire LEP picked up the award at the recent 5G Realised Event.
A spokesperson for Worcestershire County Council, said: “For the consortium to be recognised with this award is testament to the important work taking place in Worcestershire to develop 5G in the UK. It highlights the county’s position at the forefront of innovation for the British manufacturing sector and Industry 4.0. Huge congratulations to all of our partners in the consortium who were involved in developing the use cases and the testbed to operate them on.”
The Consortium recently announced the switch on of the UK’s first-ever 5G live factory trials, with locally based companies Worcester Bosch, Yamazaki Mazak and QinetiQ taking part to test end-to-end application performance, taking initial measures of 5G speeds and latency.
