5G technology is expected to be 100 times faster than the existing 4G networks, with a much lower latency rate, or lag, when sending and receiving data in real-time. It will also be able to handle a much larger number of connected devices than current networks, enabling them to speak to one another. Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, the potential of smart urban areas and the Internet of Things will be unleashed.
The speakers at this event will set out what is happening here in Scotland to explore 5G in urban areas and how this can support sustainable urban development.
The S5GConnect programme is a catalyst to increasing awareness about 5G and its capabilities, stimulating demand to harness 5G to innovate new products, services and applications. S5GConnect has three levels of engagement – raising awareness about the potential of 5G; evaluating the possibilities 5G can bring to SMEs; enabling SMEs to scale up and test using our dedicated 5G private networks.
