A foundational aspect of our work to build the 5G ecosystem in Scotland is support for projects that facilitate and accelerate 5G rollout.
5G Urban Project: University of Glasgow
The key aim of this project is to bring new 5G technological solutions to urban communities and businesses throughout Scotland. They are currently developing a 5G-enabled Smart Campus offering sustainable, healthier and smart solutions to students, academics and the surrounding community. This is already attracting investment into the area, creating new jobs and will lead the way for future smart cities while contributing to Glasgow’s carbon neutral commitment by 2030.

5G Rural Project: University of Strathclyde
The key aim of this project is to bring new 5G technological solutions to rural communities and businesses throughout Scotland. They are currently working in locations including Loch Lomond and the Orkney Islands, developing a new operational model, such as neutral hosting and private 5G networks. This can lead to improved connectivity for remote communities and businesses, contributing to a new 5G ecosystem across Scotland and driving new business opportunities and inward investment.

5G Infrastructure Project: Infralink
The key aim of this project is to break down the complex processes and legislative barriers that have delayed the rollout of 4G and 5G infrastructure, by creating a new suite of tools that are balanced, transparent and work at a national level. They are creating an impact in Scotland by eliminating barriers and enabling faster deployment and more investment in mobile connectivity.
