Cellnex UK has been contracted by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council to build an ultra-fast 5G private network in Basingstoke’s central business district. Supported by the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership and the University of Surrey 5G Innovation Centre.
The 5G core network and Radio Access Network will provide indoor and outdoor connectivity to more than 100 companies located in Basing View and a 5G Living Lab, where industry partners can showcase 5G applications for smart city, Internet of Things, immersive retail/leisure, AR/VR, transport and digital health.
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council hopes the 5G network will attract businesses to the area and enable those already there to develop, trial and bring to market new products, services and applications. www.cellnextelecom.co.uk
